Default Really need help buying snowboard/bindings online (~$400 budget)!!!!!

Hi guys,

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):

Dogfunk/Department of Goods/Backcountry - All Mountain Snowboards from Departmentofgoods.com
Bataleon Omni, Signal OG, Salomon Grip Team - are any of these good?

Trusnow - | Reviews and Sale at trusnow.com
Burton Blunt for $300?
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???

the only good board you listed there was the bataleon omni, and its not THAT great.

look for past seasons flow verve or merc, or even the era, flow makes awesome boards. I just got shit lucky and picked up a 2011 verve for 180 bucks that had been ridden once by one of my buddies. Looks like a pretty solid board and it got great reviews!

Other boards to consider would be Gnu carbon credit, older ride machetes, like I said, anything from flow really. goodluck! and for bindings look into k2 formula's or if you want a more park binding the k2 hurrithanes

I'd say out of all of those the rides are the best. I would try some other boards though. Try some old Flows, Rome, NS, Forum or Nitro. I don't really know an all mountain setup except for something above your budget.

What are some boards would you recommend? How do I know what board is good, especially when they aren't many reviews online??

Read up on the forums and research. There are some pretty good deals there once in a while and you can always wait for a good deal to show up especially now since people will want to get some new gear and will have to sell their old stuff.

This NS is a little out of range but maybe you can throw an offer ~$350 and find some bindings for <$100 and you will only be $50 out of range and have a SICK setup.

That deal looks sick. My friend is going to be buying an agenda soon. It is a great all around board that will go everywhere when needed and the s90s were what I was going to get but I was hooked up with RK30s and I'm not going back That looks like a great deal though.

Check out this site 2011-Boards-Bindings I remember seeing boards & bindings in your size and price range but can't vouch for the accuracy, availability, etc. '09/10 models are under the clearance board/bindings section. If you have an address to use while you're in the states perhaps they can ship to you.
