I might buy a snowboard.

A couple years ago I snowboarded but got out of the sport because of price. I am thinking about buying a new snowboard to ride again. Im about 5 foot 7 Inches and about 130 pounds at the moment, but I will get more weight as I am growing. My shoe size Is about 10.5 I would buy one used If I found the right size but than again the board might be worn out or cracked or bindings might be to big etc. But I know to get a decent board It would cost about five hundred to six hundred dollars for the complete setup. I know a few decent brands would be burton, forum. What would be another good board for a person who likes to ride the hills alot and Just ride down them but I also hit a couple rails and boxes hear and there so Im thinking a freeride/freestyle board would be the right one for me what do you think or should I get a freeride or a freestyle. Im thinking I wont buy one this season because they will be expensive and maybe that I should wait until spring to get a decent deal on a last years board. What Information do ya have about snowboards or which board would be decent for riding for my height on a snowboard.

flow verve board, k2 hurrithane bindings, and whatever boots fit you.

Verve can be found for 300-330, hurrithanes for 150-170 and 150-250 dollars for boots.

Flow Verve (300-320), Flux PR-15 (120) and boots that are most comfortable to you. (120-230)
Tops $630 USD That is if you get the BEST BOOTS in the entire line lol. Sometimes, just because they are more expensive, doesn't mean that they fit right. My Ride Agenda 165$ BOA boots fit a hell of a lot better than the Hi-Phy for $260

one shouldn't ever stop boarding due to cost
there are plenty of good snowboards to be had for cheap
just look at this forum's FS thread for a used one, for the price of a crappy new one, you can buy an excellent used one

From what I've heard, the verve is an awesome freestyle board that is on the cheap, I'm thinking of picking one up this year actually. I don't really know what people on here say, but if you ask me Burton is overrated as hell, Forum is a great company though and have some awesome boards out there.

What's ironic about that statement is that Burton owns Forum.

You're right. Regardless, Burton is still just a name. Just stating my opinion.

Flow era might be better due to you mostly cruising the mountain. Just slightly stiffer. Can be found on ebay for $200-225
