I’ve been hearing from various sources that now is the time to start looking for marked down snowboards from last season. A couple of shops have apparently started their sales this weekend, so I ‘a hunting. Yesterday I checked a place out in Niigata City that won’t start their sale until next weekend and will probably still be a little pricey. After volunteering for packet pickup for the Niigata Marathon tomorrow, Scott, Laura, Scott and I headed over to a last year’s snowboard sale convention. I saw one that I loved, got bindings and boots that kind of go with it and BAM now I have a snowboard!!
