Fairly new, purchased used "junk board"

So I've been snowboarding a good number of times in the past, but have always used rentals. I recently moved back to Maryland after spending the last 6 years in Texas, and decided I was going to get back into snowboarding and get my own board. Obviously since I'm just getting back into it, I don't need a top of the line, brand new board, so I went with a used. Looking around at listings for used boards, I found an LTD Fury 163 + Dynastar bindings for $65.

I went and looked at the board, and it seemed to be in very good shape. The only thing I could find wrong with it was a small crack at the top of the bindings going diagonally, so the corner kinda flops forward when not being worn. No big deal. Being so inexpensive, I went ahead and pulled the trigger.

My question is what should I expect to get out of this combo? I've searched for reviews on both the board and the bindings, but have been unable to find much of anything.

And just for discussion sake:
Weight ~200
Boot size 11
Riding style Trying not to fall down
Age 27
Your location of riding Western MD / Northern PA

Thanks.

Edit: I should also mention I fully plan on replacing this equipment once I feel I'm doing well enough to justify good equipment.

$65 is a killer deal on a functioning snowboard + bindings. If you are inclined to spend more money on your set up, then the bindings would be the first thing to change.

You should be able to at least squeeze some good action on groomed slopes out of a half-way decent board... but even top of the line equipment will perform poorly if the bindings aren't up to snuff.
