I've just been snowboarding for so long, I'm sick of spending huge dollars on all my gear every year. Cause I used too, I bought $300 dollar boots 3 years in a row about 15 years ago. 1 pair turned out just fuckin' horrible, 1 pair, the tongue came right out & they couldn't find the same boot so I ended up getting a shitty boot & a $150 credit. Broke my ankle the first time I used the shitty boots & my seasons pass pretty much went to waste.
I've spent large on decks too, but when something happens to them it's heartbreaking.
My buddy just a new Pickle, fuck you should have heard him whining all day cause it got a scatch that could barely be seen or felt.
I'd still be cryin' if I had paid full price for the Slackcountry I just snapped last week.
I bought the Slack with EX bindings + a brand new pair of El Hefe's for $250 total.
Sold the Hefe's for $300 & snapped the Slack, I still got the EX's & I'm up $50 bucks, so snappin' the Slack doesn't hurt near as bad.
This way I get to try a shit load of boards & bindings & constantly upgrade my gear.
Some deals are just too damn good to pass up
I usually keep my play money separate from my real money.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The i.get.it guys got back to me and it turns out they did get a deal going with Kessler. They have a very limited stock, and the deal will be going live on their site this Friday. But they said we can have first crack if anybody is interested...
$995 CDN (99% sure that includes shipping as all their deals do) for a 158, 163, or 168 Kessler Ride.
Let me know if you're interested and I'll pass along their contact info so you can get in before the deal goes live on the website.

For sure head out this way, I'd love to see if the fancypants is all it's cracked up to be.
You can try the Titanium, or any other board in the quiver.
Fuck, by the time you make it out here, I'm sure the quiver will be 2wice as big.
Since summer I've gone from 1 board to something like 8 or 10, I don't even know?

If you believe this post http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...tml#post535257 then those 10 year old boards are junk now...
I disagree with that post however and think you'll probably really enjoy the Palmers. I was searching for a Palmer Platinum a couple years ago but had no luck.
Found some Burton T6's (brand new) at the snow show in Calgary last weekend but they wanted $550 each. I asked what they were willing to do for a realiztic price and they said that's already on sale! I told them they were so far out to lunch it wasn't funny.
Nevertheless, if I make my way to Whistler this year we'll have to meet up and you can try the fancypants space aged board.

Well I got myself 2 of the semi fancypants boards. I think 2 semi fancypants = 1 super fancypants
Found three Palmer Titanium boards @ the ski-swap last weekend.
Pertty good deal, considering that they have a sticker price of $750 & that was ten years ago.
If I was a millionaire I would pick the super fancypants too, unfortunately I'm poor. So I have to use other methods to acquire my goodies.
Bought 3 Palmer's with bindings, for the sweet price of...dun da da dahhh... $250 cash no tax...
I had one sold for $300 three days before I even bought them.
So I made $50, just to keep these 2 brand new $800 dollar semi fancypantsters.
So my options are...
1. Make $50 & get 2 brand new boards.
2. Pay large out your ass for one.
Sorry poutanen, I'm gonna have to go with the 1st option.

I had three pairs of boots last year just trying to nail down exactly what I wanted. Once I figured it out I sold the other two...
For me I don't see how I can't afford a fancy pants board. I already spend $1300 a year on a season pass, at least that on lodging, food, etc. I think last time I added it up I spend around $5k yr on snowboarding not including my gear. Once I buy something good I like to hang onto it, so a $1000 board lasting me 5 years+ is actually cheap when you think about it.
Come on, you know you want to buy one!!! I'll hand deliver it to Van myself. I've got a buddy there that keeps inviting me to Whistler...

I think I got a virus, prior to a donek dropping a coiler on me.
