Is This Deal Worth It? Please Reply!!

Hey guys, I wanted to get into snowboarding but I don't have too much money to spend. I was looking on Kijiji and I found a "Burton Republik" snowobard with "Ride" bindings and "Vans Danny Kass" boots. The person wanted to sell them for $150.00. I was wondering if it was worth it or not, and if I were to get it, what should i offer. Here is the picture he posted on the ad with a description, thanks!!!!!!!




BURTON REBULIK 167 COMPLETE WITH RIDE BINDINGS AND VANS DANNY KASS 2 BOOTS SIZE 12 GREAT CONDITION RODE FOR ONE SEASON. NO REASONABLE OFFER WILL BE REFUSED.

Can't comment on the specific models, but a) I would never recommend buying boots without trying them on first b) 'Ride Bindings' is very vague... c) 167 is a friggin' huge board, especially for a beginner. Idk your build, but I doubt you'd be wanting something that big to start on. d) No need to be bumping your post (yet).

a) Why is that?
b) I'll try to ask him for more details and more pictures
c) I'm 5'3" and weigh 90 pounds. Is that board too big for me?
d) I didn't think anyone saw the thread

Ya listen to this guy he knows what hes talking about. I'd also ask to see an actual picture of the board bindings and boots. Im pretty sure they dont make this model anymore so its probly old.

If your 90 lbs then you can rule this board out of the question. You need something much much smaller to learn on. Maybe on the lower end of 140 cm

I would think of even going under 148 because I'm around 125-130 and I ride a 148.

i would agree that you dont wanna buy boots before trying them on.
each boot is made differently with different thicknesses of padding, etc...one company's size might fit you differently than the same size from another company.
boots will make or break your season.

also have to agree (with a bit of lol) on you being 90 pounds on a 167. that board will be controlling you.

these people are right...under 148 would be good.

Let me google that for you

good luck!
let us know what you wind up with.


*EDIT*
i have to ask too...did you see that the boots in the original ad are a size 12?
are you really 5'3" at 90lbs with asize 12 shoe?
