First off, welcome.

Yes, it's cheaper to buy now than in winter. It's cheaper on the internet than anywhere else with places like steepandcheap.com, brociety.com and whiskeymilita.com

Other sites had huge discounts in spring time and probably still have a lot left over are sierrasnowboards.com, backcountry.com, dogfunk.com, evogear.com.

Yeah welcome.

You can probably find some discount stuff around now but I think shops will also have some enticing early season deals in a couple months along with some blow outs on last years inventory. There are usually plenty of deals to be had as long as you're not shopping mid season.

With that said I'm a huge supporter of buying from your local board shop. Yes you can find better deals on line but usually when you add in shipping and such it's not huge. And I've never seen dogfunk.com, sierrasnowboards.com, or any other of the online retailers do much for the real community. While I've seen and attended rail jams and events put on by Suburban Blend and Phatman, both boardshops in my area.

Support your local retailer and they will support you...
