Buying a new board ever year?

For all the minors.
Do your parents care that you get a new board every year? I currently have a 2010 k2 www. my problem the friends i go with tend to stick on the tree runs and blacks. My stick is so noodly that I'm almost always the last one down. Told my parents this and they don't want to get me a new one. How do you guys do it?

I had a job and bought my own shit since the day I started riding. WWW in tree runs should be awesome due to its nimbleness.

Why not instead of using 1 board per year, you just get 3-4 boards in one year each having its own specialty and you won't need another board for a while(unless you're still growing)

alex that would be fking awesome if i could have a quiver of boards. I'm a teenager, no job so its basically a 1 board for all conditions type thing until I can find a job. If this lockerz thing works I should have atleast $1000 to spend by snow season.
edit: and yeah I'm still growing definitely.

The problem is that YOUR PARENTS are forking out the cash for snowboards, probably semi-expensive ones. In their eyes, especially if their not that into snowboarding themselves, they see absolutely no reason why to buy you another snowboard when you already have a perfectly good one. Noodleness, stiffness, dampening, rocker, it's all hocus-pocus to them. Try and put yourself into their shoes for a second.

Imagine you have a child and you just bought him a brand new $250 razor-scooter. 2 months later he tells you that razor scooter is only good for flats, he needs a badass tricked one as well for going down steep shit. After spending that much money on the first one, would you be that hip to buy the next one? I don't think so.

I suggest getting a part-time job and saving some money, and buying it yourself. Don't give in to the suburban-white-rich-kid Mantra, it just makes you look like a undeserving dousche

Very true and well said hobo. One problem with it is I'm not allowed to have a job during school since my grades aren't the best. Hopefully this summer I can actually find a job. Thanks for all your input

Your grades are a result of you, you want a job that means you want responsibility, responsibility means good grades. It's a circle of laziness I'm seeing here.
