Arrow Is This Deal Worth It? Please Reply Asap!!

Hi, i want to start snowboarding, and am wondering if this deal is worth it. It's a Burton board, bindings, and boots, but it's a little damaged. Should i get this board or keep shopping for another one. Thanks.

Burton Balance 160.5 snowboard w/ bindings and boots - Toronto Sports Goods For Sale - Kijiji Toronto

the fourth picture shows the damage. So please reply fast, and tell me if this board is worth it to buy, and if i buy it, can you guys/girls please also tell me how to fix it, and how much it would cost, and what materials i need to fix it? Thanks.

It is a very old Burton board amd boots lloks like they have been worn out, but the bindings look like the are in decent condition. theding on the side might need to be aked to a repair shop. I myself would not use the boots, but rather sell them and buy a new pair once you have tried them on and see how they felt. But since you are a begginer this board could be perfect for you.
Good luck

Board is crappy and so are the boots. By the way, buying used boots it not a good idea. They are broken in meaning they are shaped for the other person's foot and not yours. Up to you though. You gotta do what you gotta do to shred with affordability right?

I'd just save that $100 and find something else.

I say its not worth it. you probably wont be able to use the boots and the board might have internal damage you dont know about. If you cant see it in person and touch it, dont buy it. it'll be a waste of 100 dollars.

My feeling is that its not worth it as a first deck unless you are ABSOLUTELY strapped for money and are trying to get in to the sport as cheap as possible.

It would be better for you to buy $60 boots and rent a board for $30 than to risk investing in a beat up board that you can't be sure is in good shape.

"Edges need to be cleaned up" = rust. Rust is no fun to sand/file off.

If you are going the used route, then you should be able to spend double what he's asking for a MUCH better set up for a new rider like yourself.

Is that board even your size? Also, you can't know for sure if those boots will actually fit you. I say shop around somewhere else.
