so you need;
Board
boots
bindings
helmet
goggles
snow jacket

i am guessing you don't have board pants or gloves also?
and your budget is $450. Have your rented gear a lot in the past?

you should always rent first to see if you really like snowboarding. it's a really expensive sport to get into and i suggest renting a couple times to get used to it first before getting your own gear. oh, and when you do rent, make sure to get a board with strap-in bindings instead of step-ins. step-ins REALLY suck, and i can tell you this from first-hand experience. i had to endure them for my entire first season when i took lessons through my school last year.

Default well...

well the reason i know im going to like it is because. I love the snow ive been ski'ing, skateboarding, paintball, ant lots more. So i think i'll like it very much. My friend told me about step in bindings and strap in's. He said that step in'sd can get snow compacted in them and you cant get your foot in. But strap ins make it feel like your apart of the board...

well, if u are set on buying gear & need it for school next year, why not wait a few more months until the big sales come

I would say rent this season trying different board sizes and keep track of what gear you've used, it will help when making the purchase.

I agree with this. with you budget as low as it is your not gunna get new gear. If you have the money now you can look and see if your local shops have any leftovers from last season. But if not wait till the end of the season and get this years stuff a little cheaper; plus if you have the money now you can save a little bit extra and get some nicer stuff when it comes time to buy your gear.

As far as this goes, If you know the basics and can somewhat ride then the only way to really be good is just to practice and ride as much as you can.

well with all that stuff you def exceeded 400 dollars... that would MAYBE be just the board boots and bindings.

get a jeenyus board, ride rx bindings, 32 boa boots the boa is not easy to break and if it does they replace it for free no matter what, if not willing to pay tht much for boots then just the reg 32's like the $130's, theres ur board setup thatll come out to prolly around like 300 at zumiez i think, sale right now, uhm, depending on how tall you are id say a 154 for now if your over 140 lbs under go 152 or 148 if your shorter than 5'8 and 130 or less... 156 for 180 and over 6ft 1...
pants and jacket special blend or four square, goggles def dragon dx's and helmet? just a cheapy, gloves? dakines. the thick ones i have em theyre great or the burton ones that have the insulators....

Try every boot you can get your hands on.
I made the mistake of trying only 2 pairs, but was lucky that the store let me exchange them.
Try laced, pulls, boas, whatever fits snug and is comfortable. I've tried boots that cost 300(CND) and fit worse than boots for 150(CDN), so don't let price lead you.

Also, don't buy a 'cheapie' helmet. As with boots, make sure it fits well, has all safety ratings, etc. You don't want to trust your head to a 'cheapie'.
