Cpapp Bought everything today!
Got a burton clash 155 because it was on sale for $250.. May grow out of it skill level but I want to hit some park too.
Boots wise I got vans mantra boots. So comfortable, but a bit more than I wanted to spend.
I got burton custom bindings because they were $125.
Going out to the slopes in two weeks and can't wait to use it!

I agree. You should easily be able to find last years model of something for close to $200 or less. I've bought 3 boards this year all under $200 for last years models. A DC PBJ, a K2 Raygun and a Gnu Carbon Credit.

Just spend some time googling for a few models you want and you'll find something cheap.

Cpapp There's not one close to me, thanks for the suggestion though.

Found a ride machete 2014 for $330 used, was going to get it, check my wallet and I'm missing $75 so I can still get the board but now am going to have to cheap out on something else or shovel some driveways for some money. Which should I cheap out on if I have to?

Elit3PwnZ0r Hey, Not sure where you are but me, my wife, and our friend all used our AAA cards at a Burton Outlet in MA. If you have one by you check it out. Basically its all last years gear, starting at 30% off, and if you get a board, boots, and bindings you get an extra 20% off. Its a great way to jump into the sport at a discount since beginners like us don't need top of the line tech. Also, you could check out your local shops for closeouts, I just recommended the Burton Outlet because they have a wide range of boards and sizes where a regular shop might not have a great selection of close-out gear.

But I agree with others that getting good boots should come first. If they're not a comfortable good fit you'll have a bad time boarding!

Also just as an example my wife got the whole set up (all mid-range Burton stuff) for less than the original cost of the board alone. It was all under $400

ksup3erb No prob. I own the raygun in 156. Now if you had a bigger budget we would be talking about different boards. But sintered vs. Extruded, in my opinion, isn't a significant discussion. Pros and cons to either but it isn't going to make a huge difference at your level.

Cpapp Oh yeah sorry, not sure how I already forgot that. Thanks for the input though!

ksup3erb Again, I have never ridden the machete. So use your own judgment.
