2007 Burton or 2009 Forum Snowboard?!?
I don't know exactly what model of a burton or the forum but basically i am looking into possibly buying either a 2007 Burton board with bindings (not sure if i get boots) but they said it was in good conditon except it has some pressure cracks on the board, Which i am thinking could cause later problems or breaking of the board? They want $200 for the burton, My other possible choice is a 2009 Forum snowboard with i believe forum bindings and boots He want's $300, He described this board as in good condition and he road it for the season of 09-10, He mentioned the only thing wrong with it is that there is a chip off the front of the board because a kid ran into him snowboarding(He didn't really mention how big the chip was or not)... He said that it is fixible, But i wonder if since there is a chip, if later down the road if im snowboarding that could cause later problems like keep cracking, or maybe since there is a chip in the board, maybe it also cracked inside the board and i can't see it? And maybe that crack (if there is one) would just keep cracking and adventaully snap the board or the ply's will come apart? Also maybe since there is a chip that is bad and it will then keep breaking or something, and then the board will snap or split? d you think the pressure cracks in the Burton are a problem? And what about the chip on the forum? And i don't think this chip is just like something little, i am guessing it is probably around 2 inches long? or so?!?
Which board is better for me or which is better?!? If it helps my style of riding is i Can do rails, boxes, jumps, stuff like that, But im not pulling off any huge tricks just basic tricks on rails, and boxes, jumps.
Let me know what you think... Do you think the chip or pressure cracks could be a problem?!?
Also the rider of the forum board, Is REALLY good and he shreads hard, He is also sponsored by forum. So what I'm wondering is since he rides really hard, Do you think there could be internel problems with the board?!? Like inside of the board where you can't see could there be cracks that could keep getting bigger, Then adventually Crack, Break, Or Split The Board?!?
