Default A used board...

I'm looking at picking up a good quality used board.

I just started boarding this year, and would call myself a solid noob. I enjoy blues now, but think its about time to get my own gear since renting is costing quite a bit.

My budget is pretty small... but I would rather get a used high quality board versus a new low quality one.

On a sidenote:
Someone asked my sizes in case I would fit someone's used board on here:

I'm 6'3" with a size 12 boot, so I'd be looking for a 162-165 board which is wide enough. I'd be interested in an all-mountian/free ride board. (Arbor Element/Roundhouse, Ride Antic/Yukon, etc.)

I came across this board, its top is in great condition, but its bottom is pretty scuffed up. I'm not sure what to think of it.




Is this just usual wear and the board will preform fine, or is this something I should avoid?

Thanks for your input!

looks like the board just needs a good waxing.

The base looks dry, just wax it and see. Or ask the guy to get it waxed before selling it to you.
