Looking for a $500 snowboard package..
hey guys, so i am looking for a good intermediate snowboard. i have read the FAQ so here it goes:
Riding style-normal, majority of the time will be spent carving. will enter terrain park only under peer-preesure
Age-19- have finished growing for the most part
budget-$500 dallors peak season- $400 off peak
Your location of riding-east coast...seven springs, poakanoes (sp?), white tail.
so Ive done a little research, i am at a intermediate level and i am looking for a stiffness around 5 or 6. the only company i have taken a look at was the burton boot,binding,snowboard packages. this is only due to my ignorance of the reputation of other board companies. i will go for a burton boot because i hear they tend to fit wider feet (i think i have wide feet). i have also looked at burton custom bindings and have seen good reviews, what do you think? the burton indie and deuce are the boards that i have looked at.
when do you guys think i should buy? should i buy peak or off peak season? i am doing a weekend trip to the poakanoes early January, should i buy a board before or just rent? should i be looking at anything else? i was told that the-house.com is a good website to buy. and suggestions are greatly appreciated, the price is the number one factor.
Thanks for all the help!
