Buying a snowboard

This weekend I went to Canada to snowboard with my family and friends. I got pretty good at it and I was thinking of buying one. Does anyone know where I can get a snowboard for a better price than CCS and other websites like that?

Get a car instead of a snowboard.

no definitly not ccs. they are overpriced with a tiny selection. Your best bet would be a local skate/snowboard shop. they normally have extra boards sitting around from the year season before that are on sale. I always buy the last year's stuff because its just as good and much cheaper. I actually just bought an 06/07 lib tech for $325. It was not used and originally $500. Or you could try online stores like eternalsnow.com. Still a shop is your best bet because they can tell give you the best board for your weight and skill level.

Go to Rei and local shops. Look for a good deal. they may still have boardsfrom last season(might be too late for this).

I got a $600 board for $250 doing this.

Looking to save money? Go into the woods, find a good size hunk of wood, melt some candle wax on the bottom, and use duct tape for bindings.
