You have much to learn, my padawan.
Both of those brands are ACTUALLY terrible. Those are like... Big 5 (if you're american) or SportMart (if you're canadian) budget board brands. I wouldn't let an 8 year old near those with a 12 foot flamethrower.
As for whoever told you those are on the "top list of best snowboards"?
they're a dirty liar and you should kill them.
...I'm only partially serious.
here's the most prestigeous one Transworld Snowboarding 2012-2013 Good Wood Reviews
but you can find plenty of other ones that make no mention of Santa Cruz of Raven.
bseracka is right. You can find a lightly used QUALITY set up on craigslist or something for much cheaper. Stuff that I would use, even as a veteran of 15 years.
