That HC161 happen to be the hideous pinstriped pattern that's like olive, maroon, and black stripes???

If you're only aiming for ~12 days per season, no harm in going used. You can get a slightly used (from this season or last season) board for less than 1/2 price of a brand new board, and at that pace -- unless you hit some rocks or something -- you will still be able to ride it for several years, easily.
