Buying a Board
Hey, just got addicted to snowboarding and sick or borrowing my friends, so i am trying to buy a board and some equipment. im not to worried about the boots or binds, but im being real picky with the board i buy, but where do i start? i understand the height/weight and board length ratio, so thats not the problem. Biggest questions are:
does brand really matter?
what's a good website to buy snowboards?
Is it a bad idea to buy online?
Are there any brands i should avoid?
how do u know the difference between beginner boards and advanced boards?
whats a good budget to stick with when buying my first board?
Please keep in mind, im not a complete beginner, but im definitely ready for rails or half pipes
