Default First snowboard

so ive gone snowboarding twice in two years and i feel that im already good at it that im comfortable going on most hills(anything but double diamonds haha) anyways i found a 2006 burton retro twin on ebay that i got for 100 bucks with burton bindings unsure what type. I also went to my local ski/snowboard swap and got some used sims boots for 40...definitely not the best but good for me to start on. so i just wanted to introduce myself. im a michigander so im not near many mountains...haha. if any of you guys want to review the board if you've have/had it. that would be great. yes i know its a freestyle board...i am a freestyler as i spent my second time snowboarding in the terrain park for 3/4ths of the time hitting the jumps and boxes.

Well welcome to the world! I just recently got back into snowboarding and I bought most of my gear used, I couldnt believe how little I paid for so much great stuff! $100 for a Burton board and bindings, you cant really beat that. I dont know much about that particular board but I have rode Burtons ALOT when I was younger ( we used to get them for nearly free from the factory here in Vermont)

$140 for an entire setup is awesome - if everything fits well and is the right size then great. never used that board but it's soft and sounds good for you.

you should be pretty good with that board. and for $100, you won't feel too bad about kicking the crap out of it on rails or whatever.

Hope you have fun riding. And I think you can get a lot of practice in with that setup and progress like I did.

am i the only one that find the posts by new people that say
"i have ridden twice before, i love riding everything (oh except for double blacks!), and i love hitting the park doing boxes and jumps!" a little fishy

maybe i just really suck and learn slow, but my second time riding i wasn't hitting jumps in the park

sorry for the hate, it just kind of bugs me

I have a feeling that they are the typical Michigan jumps, not anything that's big.
