Not looking for anything fancy. But a good quality brand is preferable. maybe under $200 for the whole set?
Not picky on freestyle/free ride. Just want a good basic board so I can stop renting.
PM me if you or someone you know has a set for sale! Thanks
You can also check stores on west 4th. Sometimes they have board/binding sets for around 250 brand new, so that could be an option as well if you dont find anything on cl.

Anyone hitting up seymour on Friday? I think opening is supposed to be sometime around there. If not then ill be at cypress.

Was looking at some boot info came across a great guide with all the lacing systems n such.

Dogfunk.com - Snowboard Boot Buyer's Guide from Dogfunk.com

What do you guys prefer? I have a pair of ride boots for 8 years... Time for an upgrade edit I don't ride park at all just cruise with my friends for the most part.

I've always preferred standard lacing but thats just me. It's getting harder and harder to find boots with standard laces though.

Traditional is best to go as you can customize your lace pattern, introduce zone lacing, reduce or enhance stiffness of the boot, and also modify your ankle hold based on how you lace it.

This is obviously at a higher level, but large amount of pro-riders still use traditional lacing.

My boots use standard laces. I was just never interested in the speed lacing technologies. Never even bothered to look at BOAs and such. Besides if the laces snap (and they look like they're about to...) they're probably cheaper to replace than BOA cables.

I don't have any images or guides, but if u go to any snowboard shop and ask one of the resident boot fitters, they should be able to show you a few tricks, like the pretzel and the double pretzel to get better heel hold.

When I used to snowboard I think I had that internally ankle support thing where you just reefed on it to secure your ankle within the boot then did the traditional laces up on top of it. I was never a fan of having a bulge down on top of your toe or increased "sensitivety" for turning and the same goes for gas pedals, wasn't a fan.

K2 Anagram Snowboard 2011 - SportChek.ca

159 sale on now... I'm thinking of buying one myself... what is this board BAD for? It can't be great for everything... I'm wondering what downsides would this board have compared to like ~$500 Burton board? weight? flex? core issue?

It is more of an entry level board
Not going to be as stiff or as responsive as say a burton custom
However it is a great learning board
It has minimal rocker with a mostly flat profile, it is not a "deep pow" board.

Overall it is a fantastic deal for $160

Unfortunately I doubt any store would put the black friday ad items on hold for you, but I could be wrong.

Nice work! There's no better feeling than getting something for a good price! Any snowsport you partake in can provide you a great thrill even if its not on the best gear. Fact remains, not every pro rider will opt for the top level snowboard or ski for their uses. They generally choose whatsbest suited for the terrain they're riding!

Let us know how that snowboard performs, the best way you can.
