My opinion is that you should save more money and buy decent boots.
They make or break a day.
This advice is invaluable. If you're going to put your pennies into ANYTHING related to riding a snowboard, it's your feet. Get a set of boots that you're comfortable with, but try not to necessarily sacrifice cost to find them.
While you're at, get a nice pair of socks too. Some that'll keep your feet dry and warm. They can be just as valuable.
I got 2009 vans contra for $118. It there top of the line boot retail is like $270, you just got to find a boot you like no matter the price in the shop and just shop around online till you find them cheap enough
