That would indeed be a waste of money. Look for a closeout deal anywhere online of Liquid Force, Hyperlite, Ronix, CWB, O'brien, Slingshot (I'm sure I'm forgetting one or a few). Cheap too and 100x better.
If you have a chance to try some boards to find out what shape/size etc you like, grab that chance.

Slingshot boards are awesome they have a good flex feel to them alot like a snowboard and are great boards with awesome customer service. I came from snowboarding as well and love the way the flex boards ride. If the Slingshot isnt the way you want to go i would still go with a flex board liquid force has a few most brands do some type of flex board to get the snowboard feel

x2 They aren't cheap, but you will be better in the long run to buy a decent board. Look for some 2011 closeout deals, that will save you some $$$. Feel free to ask us any questions you may have!
