Morrow Lithium complete package

Hi, I am a beginner and saw this in an ad, wondering if this is worth $300 CAD

Morrow lithium board
Morrow dimension bindings
Morrow rail boots

Regular price for this is set at $400.

Thanks

Man for $300 it is a setup that you will be able to get the basics down on. Once you get better and want to progress, then pick up a little bit better equipment. Try on the boots, as long as they are comfortable then I can't see any issues with this for a beginner.

I'd recommend renting first.. a little cheaper. Make your first board purchase for a board you can keep for several years. I don't see me ever selling my Hero... mainly for the sentimental value that it was my first board.. but still if I do it will have a bit more residual value...

Save yourself some money in the long run and rent first.

I have rented before, and have concluded that buying would be a smarter choice since it cost me $50/day for rentals. Do you mean rent that specific board first?

I am planning on going for a 4 day ski trip this year, so that alone would cost me $200 in rental fees.

Then buy, but buy something better. Morrow doesn't have a good reputation. It'll get you started, but you'll want better before long.

For that price you can get better gear for sure. Check out sierrasnowboards.com and look at last years models, everything is half off or better. You'll find much better gear too.

Goals would be improving the basic skills of freeriding.

Any recommendations for brands?

I am aware that older boards are cheaper, but it is quite hard to find one right now, as all of the sizes are mostly gone.

Okay.. so you'd probably want a good board that does both.. this way you're not buying another board too soon cause you need something better for park. What size you need? K2 is rather inexpensive.. Ride makes some good boards too...
