Not sure how much season you have left in your area. Where I live, the end-of-season sales start in February. I'd say you should try to stick with your old board for another couple of weeks and watch the stores. If you're vigilant, you could end up walking out of a store with brand new stuff for less than 50% of retail.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
