Cheapest Time to Buy Board

I was curious as to what the cheapest time of year to buy a new snowboard is. My guess would be during the summer right before companies are about to release there next years models. This makes sense but I'm not sure.

The deals are going on right now. If you wait until summer you'll be pretty limited as far as sizes and models available. Most online shops are running 20%-60% off retail deals & every local shop I've been to is discounting 2011 & 2012 boards & gear up to 50% off

Spring and Fall typically will have more deals than the summer. Spring is the obvious time because people will actually use the gear and take advantage of the sale. Often times chains will consolidate their gear and have massive fall/pre-season sales with tons of selection. During the summer sales are not as common or effective because not many people will shop or plan to spend their money on winter gear.

Yeah, right now. Everything I've picked up for hardgoods in the last few years has been 50% off at this time of year. You wait to long and somebody else will get your board. The local shop I used to go to people would camp out the night before the sale started!!! lol

Even now pickins are gettin slim!

Right now is the time. I know some board shops you might get 40 or 50% off now which is basically cost. During the fall they sometimes might only be marked down 20-30% because while being a season old, they are in season again.

Pickins are slim even now because a lot of companies didn't produce as many boards for the 2011/2012 season as they did in previous years. I've heard from several people who are in the snow sports industry that Burton cut production by 60-70% this year, and other companies by as much as 50%. This is all hearsay, but looking at the limited selection I've seen this season in local shops, I'm inclined to believe this is very possible
