thanks dude. Sorry to sound like such a noob, but i'm not exactly sure what's a cheaper brand. From my research on here, I found 5150, M3, and Lamar are cheaper. otherwise, any other brands recommended to stay away from?
I had an M3 discord for my first board last year. Its definetly better then the rentals. I really progressed faster with having your own board. It was a good deal at the time and a great beginners board. I actually loved it. I am on my second year and decided to get a omatic awesome. Great board! I would say go for it if your new and just getting into the sport and then if your really into it upgrade next year. I just sold my M3 to a buddy of mine and he loves it too.
