Big Mistake?

Hey ive been boarding for 2 seasons now and decided to get out of that shitty rental gear. i am still in grade 12 and closing in on schoolies and formal and therefore i dont have a great deal of money. i looked for boards within 150-250 price range and the board i settled on was the 157cm LTD Fury as it had some nice looking graphics and sounded alright it came with some ltd 150 bindings also i have bought some 06 32 prospect boots . My style is freeride and i would like to know if ive made a very big mistake going with ltd?

I would have held out and kepat an eye on Whiskey Militia. Chances are you would have been able to snag a fairly nice board for $250. Keep it in mind for next season.

Yeah, the shipping to AUS would be a deal killer for me too.

hey i just found a great deal on an omatic boron with farely cheap posting to aus it looks like a good board and have heard good things about it. it caters to my style is it worth going through the shit annoying progress of getting the refund and getting the boron or should i just wait till next season chears.

If you just bought it I would try for the refund. That is going to be a better constructed board than the LTD. All they can do is say no.
