CHECK THIS:i bought new gear about the middle of feb 1300.00 worth of gear for 735.00. how did i do this? do exactly what i just told you and dont go buy the first thing u see at the first place you go DO YOUR HOMEWORK! i got the lib-teck MC_kink btx 157 09(500.00)ride spi bindings(219.99) and the ride jackson BOA coiler boots(179.99) all for 581.67(40%off weekend sale only) out the door.i also got dragon mace goggles(129.99) for 43.00 OTD with the grenade misfits jacket(149.99) for 53.79 OTD and a grenade spring hoodie(30.00) for 12.00 bucks. also new wax iron,wax,scraper,structure brush,repair candles, and dakine lock(100.00avg) for 50 bucks! ans a 17.00 beane mask for 5.00, trust me 735.00 for 1300.00 before the season even ends is incredible without knowing people who work at n e of the stores i bought from. DO YOUR HOMEWORK TAKE YOUR TIME AND SAVE MONEY! i dont recomend the burton custom bindings burton's lower end stuff isnt very good and ur paying for the name i recomend ride binding they are mad of aluminum very strong and light for a good price.
you ever heard of the enter button, its used to break up sentences into paragraphs so people can make sense of what your writing.

Oh man... that run-on paragraph with no page breaks??? Hurt my eyes to read!

I realize right now is pretty much the best time to buy stuff, but the only problem is I am broke right now haha. I spent too much money early season when my board was destroyed, forced to buy a new one, then lost my goggles. Oh well that's what happens when you become a shred bum.
