Default Best time to buy?

What up y'all?!

I'm new to the snowboarding world (been on a mountain 3 times this winter, and I'm completely hooked!). I want to buy some gear, but I'm not sure when the best time to do it is. I've been to a bunch of online shops and there seem to be good deals going, but I'm wondering if I should wait till the summer or fall for even better deals.

I'm looking to buy a shell jacket and a wide board/bindings.

Thanks!

Later you wait the better the deals the lower the selection.

you didn't mention whether you need boots or not, but if you do, spend most of your time picking those that fit.

For your first board/bindings, a great variety of gear will work - also look at second-hand deals, if you're not picky about riding shiny new gear

The best time to buy depends on your sizes. As PorkCereal mentioned, the selection / availability of gear in your size decreases the longer you wait. Not as big of a deal if you're on the small or big side of the spectrum, but I wouldn't wait too long if you fall in the middle. Starting now until late summer/fall is the best time, so if you find something that fits and is on sale get it.
