If you were wanting to buy a snowboard, but were on quite a tight budget, what would you go for and why?

Are you talking UK or generally?
I would try at the places where you can hire equipment in Austira. They usually give you good deals on last years models. Generally, last years models are always a good deal cheaper and they mostly only change the design/colour.

Generally... I was meaning what make / model best suits the novice boarder but at a sensible price?

no, of course not.
It's an ongoing thing within the circle of friends I have.
Some of them are boarders and they are simply not as fast as skiers, we always have to wait for them. It's not a bit deal, just an ongoing wind-up.

In purchasing a snowboard, a big deal for me is its compatibility. My friend have told me that it's a disservice to recommend low-end boards to new riders even though they have cost concerns so typically I'll encourage new riders to look into boards that they can grow into as their skills improve, even if that means deferring a purchase until they can afford a better board.

Heya,

I'm finally treating mself to a new board after 3 years. I kind of want it to be special though. My favourite game is Drakensang Online, and I also really like the artwork that game uses. Where can I get someone to design a Drakensang themed board for me? And if I find someone is there anything I need to consider colourwise? I couldn't find out, too much so far, and really appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot!
