Should I get this board?? (beginner needing help :/)

Hi guys! I recently went snowboarding for the first time ever and have fallen in love with it! So I decided to invest some money in gear so i didn't have to rent it anymore! I was wondering if it was worth it to buy this board for 40$

Forum Snowboard 158 with bindings he said that the condition is a high 7/10.

Also if I should buy this board or not
ski's (5) Snowboard (1) water stuff (2)

Thank you for your help~

Grab the Forum, $40 bones is pretty cheap.

If I do decide to buy it... Would I need to do anything to the board? In other words... tune it up?

Go for it. It's ten bucks more than a weekend rental and as long as it rides better than one you'll be saving money on your second ride with it :P

If it needs a tune-up

Don't buy it.

why not? I just told you it was good to go

It doesn't need a tune-up, it's fine.

Any rust will come off the first time you ride it.
