Default Advice on board

Hi

Just a quick question as I'm looking for some advice.

I'm a beginner snowboarder (some indoor and 1 week on the pistes) and am looking to get my own board as the rentals I've been given have been an absolute nightmare.

Anyway I'm not looking to spend too much money just yet and have had been offered a used set up - Millennium 3 152cm with flow bindings and a pair of saloman boots for 110

My stats:
Height 5'8
Weight 175lb


The same guy is also offering my friend (150lb 5'7") a quechua board 150cm & bindings and a pair of saloman boots for 90

So is this guy trying to hustle us or would this be an okay set-up for learning?

Thanks

Don't buy second hand boots. Suck it up and splash for something that will fit and won't make your feet bleed.

I think when you are learning boots are super important. As long as the board isnt 20 cms to big or small it won't make a difference what you are riding.

Long story short its all in the boots!

well tbh I don't care about the boots I'm more interested in whether the board and bindings are a good deal. I'll likely be buying new boots.

You also are dealing with boards that (at least for Americans who probably make up the majority of this forum) aren't exactly common... those names honestly don't ring much of a bell for me at the moment, so I'd probably suggest waiting till you can get a board from a "real" company.

At the same time, I'm not sure what rental costs are, so it might be worth it just so you don't have to keep paying rental fees.
