I agree with Avenger and Wolf, shops work really hard to get the customer outfitted. When you say you're just going online it's like a slap in the face. Plus if you have a shop you can purchase from they're a great resource for you to be able to access for information, questions, product guidance (as most employees test out new equipment), and just a valuable overall resource for anything snowboarding.
Do yourself a favor and find a good shop around you that will take good care of you. Customer service is not always something you can find online. Especially the really good kind. And it will not be face to face.
Have we all resorted to being that impersonal!!?!!?!
