Ok, guys and gals. I am looking to get into snowboarding. I was out a few times last year but really wanna do more this year so i was thinkin about buyin a board instead of renting. What are your thoughts on that? I have been looking on craigslist in my area and have found a few things but i dunno if thats the way to go either. I have found a few that i liked but then i have found out they are like 7 years old for like 200 and some bucks seems a little steep to me.. does that make a difference. I guess i have a lot of questions. I am 6'2 250 so i have been lookin for boards in the high 160's hope someone has some input.
Lots of basic information there so you won't have to ask every question twice.
As for pricing, it varies based on the board. I wouldn't worry about getting a recommended brand as it is mostly preference. Just find a board that suits your needs. You'll probably find quality last-season new boards for ~$300 for good stuff.
