If it's in ok shape then I'd say you got an ok deal, for that price I'd ride the crap out and see if you can break it riding rails, trees, rocks, stairs before the seasons done.



Is this it?

"S.E. hardcore with a Quadrax matrix, sintered 4400 SC base and has a sidewall cap"

No idea, sitting on Ebay right now for 120$ with zero bids

It's got a sintered base so it can't be that bad, like I said shred it for a season and then hang it in your bedroom, garage or man room as a trophy.

Well im a beginner so im guessing it okay for me. It just feels really light and really flexible, i didn't know if that meant it was a piece of crap

I don't think it's the greatest ride in the world, but it's still a Forum and they make solid boards especially for a beginner.

Sorry hopefully someone chimes in who more familiar with that specific board\design.

Don't know if it's the same board, but my friend also had a SOBE board but it felt really cheap. Hey it's a snowboard. It's $20. Don't worry about it, ride the shit out of it.
