Also turns out I'm a bit dyslexic, it's a 146 board. And it also turns out I'm a bit impulsive, I decided to go ahead and buy his board. I figured it rode well enough,even if it is a bit short, I don't need to go blitzing down the mountain. And I figure I need a decent beginner board/a kind of cheap set, before I go out and blow $500 on a new board/bindings. Gotta figure out what I like and all of that. So in the mean time I'll research, and maybe I'll buy a new board in a couple of seasons!
