I support local snowboard reps and companies as much as possible, and always try to purchase locally if I can. Don't get me wrong the internet is great for many handy purchases that are just not reasonable to buy locally - every single thing in Best Buy, for example: you can get the upgraded version cheaper with free shipping from the internet, and shopping at Best Buy wont do your local economy any favors. Going to a shop actually supports riders and the very basis for the progression of the sport.

Also I like to break things and then take them back to the store with a great attitude, fingers crossed, but ready to spend more money(recipe for success, sympathy, stickers, swag, hidden discounts, etc). Returning shit on the internet is a pain in the dick.

Totally agree with you on returning items online, what a hassle. Only thing is traffic sucks in L.A. so I can't always drive to a good place

I meant more Amazon.com. You can sometimes get a good deal since they reduce the prices a bit.

This is pretty smart...thanks for the comment

Another plug for Amazon is their marketplace which is a pass through for smaller businesses, eventnough there is a fee.

That said, I am in PA and Buckmans is my hometown shop and we buy almost everything there. They have great consignment in the fall and deep discounts end of season which makes them competitive with almost anything on the internet and they also do internet sales. Try to support local if you can!

I also like Backcountry.com for gear overall that i often cannot find locally.

Id love to support a local shop but the one at the place I ride sucks and the only other one really is 2 and a half hours from me so I order most of my stuff from Eternalsnow.com. Ive never really had to return anything and Ive never had any problems with my orders, they get shipped out right away, and get here quick!

The House Burton Snowboards, Snowboard Boots, Bindings, Jackets, Pants, Clothing, K2, Ride, DC, Holden, Bonfire usually has a decent amount of things. I usually find a item i like, then shop around for deals. I know, im a loser. No local shops that are dedicated board shops, so, no need for me to support the halfways.

But really, there are quite a few stores online, you'll find most of them when you shop for deals.

I'm four hours away from any retail shop so I have to buy most things on the web.

I like Evo, Peter Glen and Dogfunk.

I'm a gear whore so I'm always looking around shops in Dillon, Friso and Silverthorne when I'm up boarding. You can get pretty good deals if you just ask.
