Default Ride Dh as starter?

I just started snowboarding 3 weeks ago and ive gone 5 times, so my friend ive been going with offered is gona give me his 09 ride dh 155 for 50$(im 5' 8'' 160lb and wear a size 10), He said it might be kinda hard to learn on but that shouldnt be a big issue sence im going so much.

When i went online it says its an advanced bord, and every where i look on how to pick your snowboard says to do it by skill level, and im defently not advancd yet.

So would geting this snowboard be a good idea or should i get a difrent board for my first board?

For that price, I think that's the perfect board to learn on. I'm 5'11" 145 - 150 lbs, and I learned on an 08 155 DH. by advanced, I believe they mean it's geared toward advanced freestyle riders. However the fact that it's a freestyle board means it's pretty flexible, so it will be easy to turn/maneuver as you're learning. It's also a reasonably good all mountain board, so you'll get use out of it for a while. For that price I highly recommend it, based on my experience.

A '09 DH for $50 is never a bad idea, plus like already mentioned, its soft and forgiving, so it should be a good board to learn on.

its a really good board and you cant beat the price. it will probably chatter on you when you start to bomb runs but you prolly wont have to worry about that for a while. GET IT!
