Default Suggestions for inexpensive snowboard? Any info on Santa Cruz, M3?

Hi, im thinking about buying a snowboard, never owned one but would like to change that soon. I don't know anything about snowboards so i wouldn't know which ones to get, any suggestions on a good inexpensive one? im trying to spend less then $300 for a board.

I've been looking at this particular 2009 Santa Cruz board for about $250, the top is black, pretty plain with some skulls and other stuff in the middle and the bottom of the board has a very colorful design.

And i also was looking into a Millennium 3/M3 board from 2006.

I've been snowboarding for a few years now, and the slopes here around New York are usually covered in fake snow/ice. Any suggestions and info about those companies? Thanks

How big are you? What size boot? What sort or riding style or purpose will you mostly use it for? Is 300 for board only or board and bindings? Do you have boots yet?

Try to look for the Nidecker Axis 2012.

At $300, with a sintered base and a whole slew of other features usually found in mid to higher end boards, this model is a steal.

The only problem is that it's impossible to find in North America.

dude check out gear trade dot com and eBay, you can find set ups better than some of those suggested on here already.

I can't really give any advice on the boards you mentioned, but do you have any used sporting goods stores near you? You can usually get pretty good boards and bindings for under $300 no problem (and support the local shop!). I'm in between choosing a new board or used board at the moment, but the shop by me is constantly getting new used inventory, so it's a bit of a waiting game if yo go that route.
