if you are jibbing here are some good deals now:

STATUS Snowboard Company Mostly size 149 - 154. Very good boards, same tech as Neversummer. There's a 10% off code "get10now" 100-160$

Whisky Militia has boards for cheap and thrirtytwo boots as well.

Bindings you should be able to grab some union force at 100$ in the offseason on geartrade.com

Geartrade has lots of good jackets at major discounts look for seller "backcountry" only. same warehouse as dogfunk and backcountry.
Jacket you can get for 50$ and pants for 50$. just got to do your research.

gloves goto costco and buy some "head" gloves for 16$ they are really good.

check out steepandcheap for good deals on other winter stuff.

Deals are everywhere you just have to do some research .

Yeah man you're not that old at all.. I started competing when I was 19. You're young. Just go out there a lot and don't let anything stop you.
You'll be alright!

And there's quite a few deals out there now, even with last years gear and such. Just look at some websites and the sales they have. You can get a ton of stuff cheap now.

Aye man, I didnt start until I was almost 16, age doesnt matter. Just have fun out there, and the most important thing is to just GO FOR IT! lol Dont be scared; if you see yourself wanting to do that jump, do it! I didnt start playing ice hockey until I was 16 as well. Everybody said it was too late and probably wouldnt take it anywhere, well now Im juniours and could play for practically any minor league team I want. Same with golf started playing that my senior year of highschool, and I got a full ride to a local university because of it. Naturally some people are just talented at certain things, but if you apply yourself anything can happen buddy. Just go out there and look to have fun, not for sponsors or anything like that.

I'm in the east bay area. But I can't snowboard this winter because of wrestling in high school and don't want to risk injury right now.
Come march, my season is over, will there still be snow in tahoe?

Fuck off the wrestling coach....he doesn't want you to ride because of his season...not yours. Actually I had a wrestling coach request something similar....I quit the team...he was pissed....from my line of thought its my/your life....not his.

I don't know what you're interested in doing but i freaking love my Capita Horoscope. It feels amazing to ride and it's probably the easiest board that I've ever ridden even though it's a soft park board.
