|danny9621||thanks for all your help. I think ill go with the rome snowboard. I don't know why im putting so much thought into this since i will only be snowboarding a few times a year. I should just buy a board and go have fun. I had so much fun using all rental stuff so theres no way buying my own board,boots,bindings could make it worse. Once again, thank you so much for all the advice!|

Well, if you only go a few times a year like you mentioned, anything should last you a long time unless you bash the hell out of it. The garage rocker is alright, I wouldn't worry about the whole freestyle description. Someday you'll evolve from just riding green runs, and on a smaller mountain you'll probably venture over to the park at some point.. and freestyle boards rock both the park and the groomers.
The quickest explanation I can give you without writing a wall of text to explain sintered vs. extruded is that extruded is slower, doesn't hold wax as well, and are usually boards you beat up pretty good. Most cheap park boards are extruded for that reason. Sintered bases are the exact opposite. Extruded = carefree. Sintered=Performance.

|danny9621||Like i said before, i don't need the best board, i just want something that will last me a very long time and that will be better than the rentals. I remember riding down the green slopes with a rental on some slushy snow last year and everytime i would speed up, the board would feel very unstable and bumpy. This is why i want my own board, also to save money. And whats the big difference between an extruded base or sintered base? i heard extruded are cheaper and slower. Im assuming the rental i used had an extruded base but it still went fast enough for me|

thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely take that snowboard into consideration, although i'm not too fond of the design on the top. What do you think of this board? Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2012 | evo outlet
it would come out to only 147$ with the discount. I heard good things about rome snowboards but it says its a freestyle board and i don't do freestyle. I only ride down the regular trails which are usually groomed.

like i said ive tried other boards and ive found that burton lasts the longest...
burton boards such as the process and ration are pretty decent starter boards.
even the burton shaun white collection is pretty decent and you can find it at a decent price.
as i said in my previous post, for bindings i would stick with the burton customs, freestyles (cheapest), or missions (more expensive)

|danny9621||unfortunately, since i live in a city (New york city), there are no sports shops around that sell snowboards. What specific burton board would u recommend? Idk if you saw my post above, but what do you think about that board and bindings i posted? I can buy that board + bindings for 334$ with free 2 day shipping. Good deal or not? Thanks|

if your looking for a cheap board, check a local sporting goods store by your house. you can usually find past seasons gear for about half off (because they want to get rid of it).
Personally, the only company i would go with as a beginner is Burton. They have a wide selection of boards that are pretty decent. Same with the bindings. Bindings such as the customs, freestyle, and missions are user pretty good for those just starting out, plus they're fairly cheap (sunandski.com has freestye bindings for 89$$)
as far as boots go, i would buy your bindings and board first and go from there. always make sure your boots fit your bindings perfectly, you dont want too much give. some local stores will even heat fit them to your feet for a better fit.
hope this helps a bit!!
