my son has persuaded me to get him lessons on snowboarding - the cost for the lessons doesn't seem to bad but the price for the euqipment after seems an absolute arm and leg - does anyone know if you can get these sort of items second hand - or is that not recommended ? - any info from people who either snowboard or have snowboarded would be appreciated

try snowboarding forums,or ask around at the centre where he is learning they will know who is selling,ebay is best avoided

while he is just interested in lessons wouldnt it be better to rent one out if poss...He could lose interest fast costing you a lot of money....

y is ebay avoided? i got my K2 board for a whole £10 :-D, and it is old but it does the job. I bought 2006 season of Daniesse top and bottom protective clothing (in white) for £80 (new cost £400!) on ebay, has conceled protective butt, elbow and knee pads.

if they are beginners/have limited knowledage it is difficult to know what you are getting and if they are in safe condition(particularly as OP is asking for a youngster),suitable for your needs,suppose it is ok for the most experienced boarder,but it has to be safety first


OP where are you based?

im just outside london - in Rainham (Essex) - my son has for the last 2 years asked about snowboarding and today i was in Hemel hempsted and we saw an indoor ski slope - they are charging £ 90 for 4 x 2 hour lessons they hire the board/salopets/jacket but i was thinking that if he really enjoys it i need to look at the costs - i took a look in the shop at the place and the boards were in the region of £ 120 - £ 220 for his size (he is 11) and the shoes etc i think i would be looking at around £ 500 so i wondered if it would be okay for 2nd hand stuff or if i should really go for the new (as in safety etc)

second hand is fine as long as you know what you are looking for,just get advice first,especially if he is young and will be growing!!!

£90 for those lessons if not bad at all

Hi, The best place to look is on [url]www.snowboardclub.co.uk[/url]

They are all very friendly people and will help you to either pick the right stuff or may even have second hand items for sale.

2nd hand stuff is fine, personally I would look to buy new boots but only once he's made sure he's serious as you spend alot of time in them and they are your main contact with the board your trying to control.

If you want anymore detail/help please don't hesitate to ask on here or find me on the website above. I post as Ramirez :)
