I've only been up out snowboarding maybe 5 or 6 times, so im no expert but I dont suck either. I was wondering where the best place (not online) to buy them is at. Also when would be the best time. I know alot of places have sales going on now, but will they get even better around April or May? I would prefer new rather than used boards. I live in Seattle so there are many different large stores around here that sell them (REI, Gart Sports, etc), but im wondering what u guys think.
