Hi guys, first time here. I was brought in by a snowboard purchase thread and people are very friendly and helpful here, so I thought I'd give it a try.
I am trying to buy a snowboard, as I have been stupidly renting snowboards every time I go snowboard in the past few years (10+ at least). This year I decided I will not let the rentals suck on my money anymore, and would like to invest on a board, boots, and bindings.
My personal info:
Riding style: Regular, freerider/all mountain (bit of everything, include practice in the park)
Riding level: Intermediate
Calculated snowboard size: L -151-153cm (152 recommended), W - 248-254mm (250mm recommended)
Shoe size: Men's 10
Budget: Ideally within $300, but as I would like to have this package to last for its purpose for a while, I am willing to chip in more for performance and quality.
I understand my budget may be a bit unreasonable, and I was wondering if I would be able to get something out of a Snow Jam Megasale that is coming to Del Mar, south California in Jan 12-14?
If more info is needed, please let me know. I love snowboarding and would like to take the step to make something personal. Thank you all very much for your help.
