ever heard of a snow Jucker?
 
I'm new here and considering taking up boarding after 35 yrs of skiing. Something to do with my son. Anyway, a local web yard sale page has what appears to be a decent clean board for sale but i cannot find out the make of it or if it's even a good brand. It says Jucker on the face in between both bindings in a script font the bindings are Sim which I've heard of but the board not a clue.

I found 1 person selling the same board for $75.00 US but it was in French and I could only make out the word Jucker. Any help? Is it a good beginner board and how much should I offer? Or just walk away and keep looking.

Thanks

Thanks, will be attempting this weekend at my local mt. Demo day to see if I like it.

Be patient, maybe give it a couple of go's. The first day can be tough on a person. Hang with it and I bet you'll love it!

Keep looking, the low quality bindings imply a low quality board

Just keep in mind, the gear you demo is way different than what your considering. Keep track of what you demo and also rent a few times and this community will gladly direct you to something that will maximize your enjoyment. IMO, first purchase is a comfy pair of boots from your local shop. It will make all the difference from day one. Have a blast and surf some snow. Cheers.

Thanks all. I will pass on this board and test others until I find my comfort zone. I got to learn cause my 12yr is asking me too and I won't let him down. But thanks to all here, very helpful.

Glad you're getting into the sport! The first few days will be rough, but i think you'll find you really enjoy it...

So I got curious and goggled jucker snowboards and found their official website (I think) but it just left more questions. Their based out of Hawaii and have a website in German. Saw some comment in my search that skateboarding is their roots, snowboarding is in their past, and SUP is what they do for exercise, make of that what you will.

Anyway best to pass on that board since no one else has seen a Jucker snowboard. And good luck learning the sport.

Yeah the first day will be either "f*ck this shit I'm going back to skiing", or "dammit why is this so hard...I must figure it out!"
