Dumpster dived a board

Just found a Lamar Viper 144. What is it? I know nothing about boards. Edges are chipped, bottom is pretty beat. Throw it back in the trash? Restore somehow? Anyone know the year or anything about it?uploadfromtaptalk1396221847052.jpguploadfromtaptalk1396221874241.jpg

If you don't have another board to ride then ride it... Beats a lunch tray.

I have honestly never snowboarded in my life. So no I don't have a board lol. All I have for equipment is a Bern helmet and that's just cause I longboard with it. So start with this? Is it possible to restore a bit?

Looks like a pretty beat-up board....try bringing it to a store where they tune up snowboards and see what they say. 144 can be a pretty small board. What's your weight and height?
