I'm on a ~$400 budget and need help buying a decent, inexpensive clearance
snowboard/bindings online for the upcoming 2011-2012 season. I couldn't make the local ski/snowboard shows in Toronto, Canada so now I am left with very options... I'm not very picky and I just want a decent board that will fit my needs (skill level, budget, etc.) for the next 2-3 seasons and maybe
leave me a little bit of room to grow and improve. I'll be visiting the States for some Black Friday shopping in 3 weeks so I was planning to order one online and bring it back to Toronto...
Can you guys please kindly help me choose a suitable board and bindings?
Some info about me:
-Male, 6'0" (183cm), 167 pounds (76kg)
-Salomon Savage SZ 10.0 boots (Flex 5/10)
-Intermediate+ snowboarder for 3+ years
-90% Resort, 10% park
So I'm guessing I need a board length of somewhere between 155-159cm? And size M/L bindings???
Some clearance boards of interest I've seen (all within ~$250 budget but no idea if they are good):

- All Mountain Snowboards from Departmentofgoods.com
Bataleon Omni, Signal OG, Salomon Grip Team - are any of these good?
- | Reviews and Sale at trusnow.com

Sierra Crew or Sierra Team board for $249 and package with Rome S90 bindings for only $100 more (normally $150) - Is this a good package deal???
