Default Is this board ok for me?

I am new to snowboarding (I've done it twice) and was looking at buying a board. Someone was selling a Liquid Universe that is 56 1/4 inches long and a Liquid Pursuit which is 55 3/4 inches long. Both have Liquid bindings. I am 5'8" and weigh around 140 pounds. Are either of these good for me to get started with?

They're asking like $120 for the board and for the bindings - it's brand new. Is this too small for me? Or is it ok to start out with?

Well according to google your looking at 141 or 142 cm board. That is very small. I would try to find something a little larger. At least a 150.

I measured and 137 cm comes just below my chin. Should I even consider this board for the right price as a starter board or forget about it?

This board is a little on the small side for your weight. It will work, but the board will be pretty soft under you. Assuming you're still going to put on weight in the future, you'd probably want to look more at a board in the 148-150cm range. At $120 for board and bindings, it's not a bad price if you're just planning on riding a few times a season or if you're on a budget.
