Rossignol doesn't really make bad products (at least in the ski line), sure there are better in comparison, sometimes when you compare the prices between two brands you get the impression one brand sucks over another because there is more benefit to buy another brand, but do your research:

1. find the exact board you want!
2. find a couple more and write down their specs
3. go shopping in the middle of summer and pick out something within the spec ranges you want if you don't find your exact board first.

You are sure to save a bundle. And if not, I'm sure you will at least get the same deal you would today!

I do this with clothes too. I buy alot of stuff off season and save a good bit of money. I bought a Nike Sumo 2 sq driver for $89 NEW, a year old but still...new in the middle of winter. At the time it was a pretty good deal because the off season for golf isn't so off compared to snow sports , at least in America.

sometimes it's hard to wait, and you really want that new flashy super gizmo crazy killer thing. Watch this before you buy into the hype tho! (over 18 only, not work safe, don't worry no nudity only words)

Trusnow = the house now, which doesn't help matters any. Its not like they have killer deals anymore, but the skip on tax isnt bad alone.

GorgeDad Most points have been hit here. You can definitely save some money buying end of season leftovers, but I wouldn't let that drive your decision unless you are really hard up for cash (in which case you couldn't afford to snowboard anyway.)

You run the risk of many of the better boards and common sizes not being available. That said, if you do your homework and find gear that is suitable for you and can get a discount, go for it. Just don't let the discount drive your purchase since you won't notice the $ as much as you'll notice riding a board that isn't right for you.
