Some places still have last years stuff -- which should be at least 50% off

If you get cheap stuff at full price, it's usually junk that you'll be sick of aft a few runs -- I made this mistake many times lol

Try corbetts or meltdown

Agree... the saying goes "Cheap Guy Always Pays Twice".

i was at Skiis and Biikes last week getting a Tune-Up on my board asked the guy about 2012 Burton Stock, they have some in the back selling at Cost around $160ish. I had him hold it for me but never went back for it. I need Bindings aswell, completely killed mine on NYE at Blue

That's a crock, specially for a newbie.

Get a brand name binding from sportchek or sportinglife, or whereever for cheap.

Go learn how to board first.

Then worry about the name brands/etc.

Im still skiing on skiis that I bought 10 years ago from PLAY IT AGAIN SPORTS lol - and they were used then.

Not so much the brand... But there IS garbage out there

Bought my first everything from sport check-- the boots didn't hold without over tightening and cutting off blood to my foot-- and still wernt comfortable. Spent the same amount ($200) on Ions at the snowboard show for %50 off and its night and day

The drake bindings I bought there for $120 didn't feel snug until you put all your weight into tightening them which led to foot pain and cramps in a run or two. Even after that you have no confidence on your edges as it feels like youre just velcro-d in. I went and bought Cartels on clearance for $135 (barely any more money) and they're some of the best bindings on the market that I will use for years.

There are ways to buy useable stuff without breaking the bank. I overpaid for my gear because I bought crappy gear first -- it would have been way less just to pay the extra $15 upfront for gear that doesn't blow chunks. Just sayin, full price at sport check can be a terrible idea on a budget.

IMO if you can't afford it all at first, spend you money on quality boots(hopefully on sale), outerwear, goggles, helmet and keep renting board and bindings until you can afford something on clearance, which there is TONS of if you look around. It's obvious that getting 50% off is going to lead to better gear

cormier, I think thats kind of what we meant. you can get decent stuff without paying an arm and a leg.

anyway, do your research, check the reviews before you buy.
