Am I missing something or did this dude just want some advice on the website?

I've heard of proboardshop but haven't had any experience there. I'm pretty sure it's a respectable name but don't have much other info. to offer. I've ordered through Sierra snowboards before. If I were you I'd wait a month or two (if you have an old board and can stand riding it). I bought my most recent board two years ago in February and it was dropped by over $200. Or, like another poster said, look for last season's models.

Burton makes decent boards for the masses. If you want a real board, look into Venture or Never Summer.
Have you ridden Venture? I was considering getting one, I like the idea of local CO boards, particularly out of Silverton, but don't know much about them and don't anticipate finding any to demo. Never Summer Premier or Heritage were other options I was considering.

Don't own one, but have demoed them a decent amount of times. Buddy haa "Pro" model a few years ago. Norm For Prez 08. Rides comparable to NS as construction is very similar. Offered a pro deal, just don't have the jing for a new board right now.

Been very happy with NS over the last 10 years. Broke a Decade right at the back binding. Out of warranty. They exchanged it for new board for $125.

Bought a skate banana and it is the most fun board I've ridden in 23 yrs.

Check out last years customs are something like 250, and the unics are 269. Thinking about a unic but probably building a split board instead

I always end up with burton because I know what I'm getting(And Proforms). I have mixed feelings about mervin, but now that they have gotten away from cap construction, I probably buy one if the rep hooks it up.

My Quiver = Active- 2 162 Malalos, 1 166 Custom(warrantied last, working on warranting it again.)
Retired 163 Dragon, 162 Riders Choice
Sold 158 7 and 160 Temple Cummins
