Default What to look for when buying a used board?

I'm going to meet somebody from craigslist in a couple of days and I was just wondering what I should look for, other than the basics (if the boots fit, scratches/dents/chips on the bottom, etc).

K2 Zepplin Snowboard

That's the board.

Thanks for your input guys!

Make sure the edges aren't all chewed up. Check the flex and camber to make sure it's not worn out. Check the binding mounts for stripped threads, etc.
