First Board please advice me wich to buy

Hi guys. I've decided to learn to ride snowboard. I don't have much money so I am seeking to buy cheap starter equipment. I've found some offers for second hand boards and bindings (I am not from UK) but I don't understand and I don't have anybody to ask which is good and which is bad. Could you give your advice I will appreciate it.

I would prefer 1) or 2) because they are 50 euro with board and bindings but what's your opinion?

1)
Snowboard + bindings- 50 euro
Snowboard -Drill Mt50 150cm,
Bindings - Factory
4 years old ridden 20 times perfect condition

What the seller said to me on chat:
It's wide twin - don't know what this is
Some special cover on the bottom it is not smooth but has some little holes
It is pro board with all the techonolgies and it was 650euro when he bought it.

2)
Snowboard + bindings - 50 euro
Board - Burton 157 and has marks from usage
Bindings - snow pro

3)
Snowboard + bindings - 100 euro
Board is Elan Artec 1.2 and it is for freestyle,jib,rail
Twin tip
S-Contact Base
Length: 156,5 cm
Eff. Edge: 1169 mm
Waist Width: 251 mm
Cent. Stance: 540 mm (220 "Set Back 15 mm/0,6")

Also could you check out theese boots:
Burton Men’s Freestyle Boots

Seller says they are brand new and sells them for 75 euro.

The lightweight, comfortable Burton Men’s Freestyle Boots provide the flex and board feel you need to take on any feature in the terrain park. Burton used a skate shoe approach to design these boots—a low-profile sole with EVA cushioning allows for board feel and shock absorption on rails, boxes, and jumps

Are they good do they worth the money?

And I found one more pair of boots at the same money (I can't give more) which are better

Description:
Exus man board boots
Season: winter2009/2010
Inside Sock: Level 1/5
Slip-sole: Level F
Hardness: 5/10
Sock: Ultralon® foam; termoregulated
Sole: rubber, with EVA foam

Renting is not an option since one time is 15 euro and I plan to ride as much as I can and 20 rides will be 300euro = quality set

Thank you!

Hi, welcome to the forum!

There is a ton of info right here > http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...ease-read.html

Have a read through, i'm sure once you have figured out what size etc will work for your weight, that will help you narrow down your search for a board.

Do some searches, read some threads that are already here discussing boards, bindings and boots. You'll be on your way before you know it!
