Default is this a legit starting board

Hey guys, im trying to pick up some cheap starting gear for my little brother. He's only gone snowboarding once and is interested in learning but doesn't want to pay a whole lot since he figures he'd wreck whatever gear he's using this season. He was looking at this eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices but i've never heard of this brand for th board or the binding. Can you guys give me a little help? Oh he's also really interested in it because he likes penguins too

For $40, I'd take it. I'm 5'10" 110 and I started out riding a 156 stiff freeride deck. If he weighs more than me, he'll survive on it no matter what. EDIT: This board calls itself all-mountain, so it should be decent.

Wait for a couple others to chime though.

Does your little brother want to ride around the mountain on a board labelled "the little penguin"?

How "little" is he? If he's anywhere near teen or tween, I'd give a snowball in hell better odds.

Edit: If he's already vetted and approved it, ignore my comments.

He's not really little he's 6ft-ish and around 150-160lbs. He really liked the 155 length and he enjoys penguins and could give a shit what others think so i don't think that's be a problem.

Then go for it. It should serve well enough to learn on, especially if he only intends on using it for a year.

Looks like a decent, cheap way to get an intro to snowboarding to me.

To start on? Of course. Once he starts progressing he'll know when his equipment starts holding him back.
