Another thing that I strongly suggest to new riders looking at a new board: Demo as many as you can. Now is not the time to buy a board, they're in demand and prices are high. If you can ride your current board for this season, and get to any demo days there are in your area, then buy a board mid-late in the season.
You can still find a shit load of 50% off 2012 boards... I got my 2012 Devun Walsh for like 320

One of my buddies picked up a 2012 skate banana for 350 tax in at the Toronto Snowboard Show as well so if you look hard enough and are ok with a board thats last years model its not that bad.
