It will be junk.... You'd be better off finding a used board on craigslist locally or something

Ya, you're dealing with off brand companies, and chances are they're going to be worthless boards.

If you want a badass and cheap snowboard, get this board -
Capita Space Metal Fantasy Snowboard - Womens from Backcountry.com

I don't think that board will be any better than the one you bought. More importantly what type of riding will you be doing? We can help you choose more boards that will help you progress and fit your style.

Who makes it? That'd be my first question. Just looks like an opportunity to try to capitalize on the popularity of the X Games to sell a few crap boards for way more than their worth.

By and large, steer clear of big box sports stores for snowboards. They specialize in carrying the lower end boards from the big name manufacturers. You can almost always find more board for less money elsewhere.

You don't even have to spend more. You can get a very good board for $329 if you shop around.
