Was in the same boat as you a month ago - and craigslist is a good choice. My brother found a Salomon Prospect for 135, I found my board for 150. That, or check SierraSnowboard...my vote might go for the GNU CHB MTX (yes, thats a board...) $200 for magnetraction!

Board: Directional
Bindings: Burton Missions 07
Boots: Burton Freestyle 07

man, i am really liking the forum recon a lot! it does me very well. The msrp is at $300 or a little over, but a lot places are selling it for $250 or less now. I would suggest at least checking into it. It's a freaking awesome board for the price.
