Need help!!

ok well ive been snowboarding for three years now, for most people that means youve progressed or at least learnt the basics, well not me, i dont know why i just dont get motivated enough to ride very often, plus living in a prairie province that doesnt help either, well this year thats changing, im gonna actually invest time and money(not huge $) to help get back into snowboarding. im about 5 7" and 150 pounds, looking for a park/ freestyle board for relatively cheap, well realy any board that can handle some abuse, i might be a hack seeing as i got out under 10 times a year, a package would be great if you could get me a canadian online stores link, i was looking into something like a k2 or others along that line, any help would be greatly appreciated.also i already have boots just need board and bindings.

Hi! I just bought my son this board but in a 158 (he is more of a freerider than park). He is around 5'10 and 148 pounds with size 11 boots. This is a Rossignol Scope for $93 Canadian off Ebay. They have the board available in two sizes: 154 and a 158. It was sent FedEx from the Toronto area so there are no customs or brokerage fees. They charge $30 for shipping and handling. So altogether the board is around $127 CDN, which normally sell for around $250 to $300, and you will have in a week. Much better than blowing your coin on an LTD. The graphic on the topsheet is a train (sounds stupid but actually doesn't look too bad). BTW, I live in Alberta; you in Saskatchewan?

Here is the link: Rossignol Scope

Gooo toooo F/S and see if you can get your hands on an O-Matic. They are pretty cheap, and are of awsome quality.

Oh no, not at all. All you need are 3 hole disks (normal bindings have 4 holes) but they will be compatible will all bindings. In fact, a lot of manufacturers are now making an extra slot on their binding disks to accommodate the Burton insert pattern. There is an exception though...there IS a new Burton Jeremy Jones model that requires a special Burton binding. You will not mistake it for another Burton board though; it has ONE LONG groove where the insert holes are normally on a board. I personally would avoid any board that limits my choices. If Jess figures there is a good deal on the O-Matics at FS, they may be worth your while to check out!
