So this was my first season boarding. Was carving on the first day,and in the park on the 3rd time out. (I did other board sports before snowboarding). I currently have a k2 ray gun,157w,I got it this season. I will be buying a season pass in a few days,but I want the k2 WWW 155w.....I don't want to drain my savings right now. So could I pick up the WWW online for dirt cheap in the summer or do I need to get it now on the end of season sale? Hate to drop like 800$ on stuff I won't be able to use for 7 more months..... thanks in advance!

the last big sale is memorial day.

price usually goes back to retail after the 2nd week in august when the new stuff comes out.

just remember it is not a deal unless its over 50%.

You should be able to get a K2 WWW for under 200$ .

I got my in Jan for 180$. of course it was 2012 model but still a good deal. you have to search for these deals.

Most of the time you won't find them on google b/c you sometime have to add coupon codes to bring it down more. If you put in the time you will find it.

No offence, but NOBODY "carves" on their first day. I don't want to rip you a new one, but turning and carving are two different things.

This is carving...

Now, back to your original question. At this time of year 50% off is good. And for any previous year models I wouldn't pay more than 50%.

The exception is a special/rare model, or something they're discontinuing. But the bread and butter snowboarding gear should have decent stock.

Okay I wasn't carving like that.... but I was turning on just my edges with out skidds.
thanks for the info,so if I want to get the 2012/2013 WWW 8n a month or so I should be able to find it for pretty cheap.

You were turning without any skids on your first day? Not picking on you but that seems highly unlikely but whatevers.

I'm on the lookout for a Rome Artifact Rocker myself

Sweet man.
yeah I have screwed around on a board before like sledding,so I was instantly cofterble on a snowboard. I had also snow skated for 2 years. (Looks like a skate deck with a small ski on the bottom.) I am also just naturally good at picking up sports. Lol
I kinda walked into getting crap on here, so feel free to call BS hahaha
