Default You makes You better, the board does not.

I think people freak out to much on the forum about which board to get. You your self will make YOU better, by getting out there and riding. The board is a very important aspect to snowboarding, but its only a board, it isn't going to take you down the mountain and shred like Travis Rice. I believe that some gear will help you improve and progress, but hey, lets not get to picky.

yeah, your right. but the newbies come here and are over exited and want to jump in really bad (takes one to know one) =) because they are afriad of being posers, being held back, over-compensate for something; whatever rocks their boat! but we alls just need to understand that you can learn on a 2x4 with a pair of hiking boots nailed on and you can still become an awesome boarder!!! it takes commitment, not the to-have board of the season...

the board will compliment your abilities, not create them!

contradicted yourself a bit

a shitty board could hold you back, a higher quality board and it's unique characteristics can/could make a rider better in a sense seeing that they are more comfortable.

i definitely agree with this....needless to say, i am one of those people who will take 2 weeks of straight researching to choose between 3 boards and in the end it doesnt make that big of a difference haha

I whole heartedly believe this. Although, getting a new board is always a nice thing too

may have a little bit, but my point was that there is a difference between a piece of ply wood and a 200 dollar board, but i don't think buying a 500+ board is going to help your riding any, get what i am saying?

I think that when you are really good that extra tech in the more expensive board could take your riding to the next level. But yes I believe you can learn on practically anything cheapish
