My problem is that I am seeing everyone pointing out specifics about a board (flex, response, pop,etc) so I am thinking that every board is different and if i buy a cheap board , or a board that isn't perfectly right for my style, I will suck at doing park/back country because it doesn't have the specifics i want....and I will have wasted my money
Ya budget is an issue considering i am a teen paying on his own...
I spent $170 on boots
Going to spend $120 on bindings
so I am aiming for a board under $250
