Good advice so far.
Just a little extra information, a sporting good store local to my house is no longer goign to carry snowboard gear anymore so they are having a super sale on snowboards to get rid of them. I know i should buy boots first however, I will list the boards and their prices and maybe i should buy a board then keep looking hard for boots?
Burton Clash - 155 2013 - $150
Burton Bullet -157 - 2013 - $150
Solomon Ace - 156 - 2012 - $75
K2 Brigade - 158 - 2012 - $75
I'm new to this so if these sales aren't really that good let me know. Also is 158 too big for me because the K2 Brigade had a slick design.
