Default Avalanche Crest Quality

I'm loomking to buy my first board. I found a good deal on some Avalanche boards. The Avalanche "Crest" and "Defender" in 155 or 158cm are both on sale. I cant find out much about this company. Do they make quality equiptment?

I'm 5'9", and 180 pounds. I am an intemediate rider. I dont ride park at all. The area I ride is pretty steep so I traverse a lot. A board that turns easily but is still somewhat forgiving would be nice. I have always ridden Burton Rentals, so this is what I'm used to.

No clue. It`s 2010, and with 5 minutes of google I couldn`t find a website.

Is it scary that a board company doesn't have a site in this time and age?

I wouldn't buy a board from an obscure company. If you were a complete beginner, it would probably be ok to learn on. But you'll want something better if you're intermediate. What's your budget?

The lack of website made me wonder. I didn't know if it was an off brand or made by another company.

I'd like to spend $400 or less for just the board.

I'll recommend what I ride. Last year's Arbor Element. They were sold out everywhere, but REI just added a few to their site on closeout for $344. You can ride anything in any conditions. About the only thing it's not good for is jibbing. But it doesn't sound like you're riding park anyway. You could go either 158 or 161. I'd probably go with 158 for your weight.
