I'm just getting into snowboarding this coming winter and am wondering
what a suggested brand/type of snowboard I should look into buying?

None yet Wink

For the first week lend one and try to find out if boarding suits you or
if you rather want to go skiing.

And if you still want a board, look for a good/recommended shop nearby.
One that can service you board too. And consult them. Tell them where
and how you would like to board. And they will recommend you something
for sure. Not everything can be solved on the net.

For a beginner, the brand of the board isn't going to make a
significant difference. You do want one that is the right size for
you and on the med to softer side of flex as opposed to stiff.

More important than the board are the boots, which must fit
correctly. If you're going to buy boots, I highly recommend boots
with the BOA lacing system, which uses a ratchet to very easily,
quickly and uniformly tighten the laces. Again boots should be med
flex for a beginner.

Also agree with the advice to consider renting eqpt for the first few
times or even the whole season. Some shops have season programs that
might work well for the first season.
