Notoriousmlg well what are some other brands that would be a good fit?

Deviant It would be fine for kickers, but if you're looking to do rails/boxes/buttering I'd look at something else. I ride a park specific board that also holds an edge well, but maybe someone else can chime in here on something that would work well for everything, the board I ride is a bit out of your price range.

Notoriousmlg Will I be able to work with it in the park? or should i fork out an extra 30-50 bucks and get a well known board?

Deviant Yes it's a solid board, although it doesn't share the burton name, it's still made in their factory (according to sierra in Austria), and uses many of the same materials as the Burton Custom.

Notoriousmlg Ya another person suggested the sierra crew also.... Is it a well made board?

Deviant Also, 300 is on the low side price-wise, but in my opinion a solid board for all mountain in that price range is the Sierra Crew. Right now its about 250 bucks. You may need the wide depending on the size of the new boots. The sierra crew is also very similar to the Burton Custom.

burritosandsnow Burtonx8 is right ... this is rule number one on getting gear... you can get good boards and bindings cheap at end of year sales... take that savings and invest in quality boots. Do not just buy an expensive or inexpensive pair online. Go to your local shop tell them your size and riding style and try on everything... it may a cheap boot that works for you it may not but in the end having a boot that works for you will make you better because youll be more comfortable on the hill.

also boot brands size different so keep that in mind.. I wear anyting from a 9.5 to a 10.5 depending on the brand and my normal street shoes are 11's

yusoweird You put Forum Symbol as your topic... That's the board I have, and I think it is a great board. It is definitely on the stiff side so it is great for all mountain.

Notoriousmlg All Mountain. In seasons past Ive just been going down the mountain but Im going to Colorado for spring break and Im gonna have my friend start teaching me in the park. So I'd like a board that covers it all. If possible something around $300

Deviant First of all your boots are extremely important, just because Big5 has snowboard boots doesn't mean they will fit you correctly. Do not skimp on boots.

Second, what type of riding are you planning on doing? Park? All Mountain? If we are going to suggest a board and bindings we'll need more info.
