I ride an avalance, I hear Rome makes nice boards. $500 seems pretty steep for a pass. I got mine for like $200, but then again it is for ober....

ugh. i am buying an all new set up this year. the main problem i am having is with the board. what is it with snowboards looking like complete fucking retards got a hold of photoshop and took a graphic design class? i really like simple designs. like the burton idioms look off the fucking hook. but i am in no way at the level of needing a 700 dollar fucking snowboard.

 

 

so with that said, is there any recommendations for a stylish board for an all-mountain type of person? i've searched for a bit now and every design i have liked so far has been the 700+ range. anything less than that would be a start.

 

help sons!

 

 

thanks.

I probably won't ride at all at the local places this year, much like the past years, since i don't really enjoy paying money to ride down a 300 foot hill and having to spend more time waiting in lift lines and on the lift than riding. However, i'm going out to utah mid january and i can't fucking wait. Here's to hoping for fresh powder and as much of it as possible.

Im willing to spend the dough for a board i like but 650 still seems kind of steep.

But extremegear.com has some burtons in the 450$ range. Then they also have the retarded 700+ boards.

I never got in to snowboarding, even though all of my friends and girlfriend do it. I prefer to wear turtlenecks and sip wine in the lodge.

 

Me and Hydrogen Peroxide need to hit up Whistler.

Nice board. I remember when LibTech was brand new.

 

Those are nice bindings too. I like when you can move the toe strap down

 

so it will push the boot backwards into the binding. I hate when my heel lifts up.

 

Have fun riding.

 

I'm jealous.
