Deal or No Deal?

Okay so I am in need of a new setup for this season. My friend just offered me his like new 2006 Burton UN..INC snowboard, Gigi Ruff model (size 158). With a pair of like new white/black Burton Mission bindings. Both for $250. I was wondering if this is a good deal or not? Also I wear size 15 boots (12 shoe), and I was wondering if this board is going to be wide enough for me? Thanks

No your going to need a wider board. Id say that size 12 boots definitely warrants a wide board.

Is there a place to search just for wide boards? And what are some good cheap wide boards, that will fit me? thanks

Wait, how old are you? Why are you wearing size 15 boots, and 12 shoes? Also, what's your weight, and riding style? If you're going to be on a budget, spend the most on your boots...

Im almost 16..I dont no, My shoe size is 12, and my boots now are a lil small, but the tag is ripped off so I dont no the size. So I went on some weird Sizeing website, and they said for me to mesure my foot from heal to toe, the longest pont. and it was 12. and they said I need 15 boot? Maybe thats wrong? Cuase my friend has size 12 shoe, and he wears at 12-13 boot, and the board above fits him fine?
also, I ride mostly park. and I am 6' 155

What do you mean a little small? As in, it feels a bit snug? Are they still comfortable? Did you try your boots on BEFORE you bought them? And it's a bit unusual to upsize boots wise, but to upsize this much, there is definately something wrong.
