    Posted: Jan/06/2013 at 10:40am
Well I've been snowboarding a few times for the past couple years and thought it is time to actually purchase one since renting is very expensive. I was wondering what board TruSnow would recommend for someone who has a decent amount of experience but wants to start learning tricks and having more fun. Im looking to spend about $300-$400 for the board, boots, and binding. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank You

Sierra Reverse Crew with the S90 Rome bindings.
try to find some boots on sale $99
considering you're shopping in the states, might even be able to get things a little cheaper.
GL!
check out the reviews, it'll help

^ I agree with jhoang6... Sierra Reverse Crew with Sierra Rome S90 bindings.  I wouldn't go cheap on the boots though (unless they're heavily discounted), those are the most important!  Get some good quality boots and you'll thank me later. LOL

There are tonnes of reviews on here and MANY buying guides (such as ippy's pinned thread).  I suggest you do a lot of reading as well so you know what you're getting into with the different tech options.  We're only suggesting the R.Crew S90 combo because it's probably the best bang for the buck on this entire website.

Make sure you choose the appropriate length and sizes.  Best of luck!

I got me the Burton Moto Boots (2012) around $70. I think it's great for intermediate riders with medium flex and you can put on your boots in no time! Hunt the internet like a mad man and you'll find deals you won't expect. But before you buy boots online, please please try them on at a local store. What's great for me might not work for you.

Buy a used board and bindings of your local Craigslist for $150-200 bucks and then spend the rest of your budget getting fitted for a decent pair of boots.  Your feet will thank me, boots are the most important part of any set up.

Yup!! I agree with everyone here. I usually steer 1st time buyers to this package or look around for past model deals. Looks like you might like doing butters and park? Go with a soft flexing board. I wouldn't go cheap boots though. Good boots is the difference between having an enjoyable time and a painful day on the mtn.

Make sure you get boots first. You might need to spend more on boots. Boots are the most important piece. Doesn't matter what board and bindings you have when your feet hurts and/or numb, you won't be having too much fun. 
You can read all the reviews you want about boots but its not going to tell you how they'll fit you. Go to a local shop and try on as many boots as you can.
Get the Stunt or Reverse Crew (depending on your riding style) with S90 bindings. Best bang for your bucks. If not, craigslist, ebay, or your local shop might sell used/demo.

You can also buy a board and binding real cheap if its last years model or older and same with boots but really make sure the boots are perfect for you and that your heal doesnt slip at all. Nothing worse then sore feet in the middle of the day

+1 on the boots, my last pair were vans encore boas and they made my feet numb, so make sure you try on the boot and wear it for a little while to make sure that they fit good

Is there an easy was to find 2011 or 2010 boards and bindings online? I go to websites and a lot of them are filled with new 2013 gear.

Basically to drive the point home,
focus on BOOTS THAT FIT.
http://trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=45408

It stinks to have a board and binding combo that's awesome and then not be able to ride because your boots hurt your feet terribly or don't fit right.

Do not do as me, and buy board as main prior and then boots and bindings. Boots first! Boots can follow you from board to board, you really want someone sitting good, been made of good quality and being really comfy.
