Well look, considering nobody else has addressed this thread yet, I'm guessing ppl have little to no experience with those boards, and that's not a great sign loll :P !!! I too have no experience with those brands, so you're on your own with that.
If you're anything close to being serious about snowboarding, than you should opt for quality brands that have proven themselves, these include: Rome, Never Summer, Ride, Nitro, Capita, Lib Tech...... Burton works too, but it's overpriced.
In my opinion if you want an amazing board for the price and that'll last you 3-4 yrs or more; go for the Sierra Crew I showed you Sierra Crew - Snowboards Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com
. It's made by Burton. Basically Burton quality without the Burton price. Sweet deal. It's even free ship in the U.S. Go for it!!
Buying a budget board isn't worth the money you save, TRUST ME.
As for your cousin absolutely wanting a crappy board. Just tell him to craigslist or kijiji that shit. He'll at least get something good for the same price - if not cheaper.
Hope this helps!!
