Default first used board

Weight 140 ish
Height 5 9 - 5 10
Boot size 9
Riding style: mostly groomers
age: almost 15
budget don't really have a budget, reasonable price for a beginner with good value
Your location of riding Ontario

So I'm a beginner (working on linking turns smoothly down blues) and was considering buying a used board. From my research, they tend to have better better value while not really affecting performance if in good condition. I'm open to all options, including new boards but I live in Canada if that matters. Right now,I'm looking at 2 options.
Burton air 156 with Burton cartels, both 2007 100$
Burton custom 156 with Burton missions, both 2011 450$
So my questions are, are either of these boards a good value? Or are there any other options. Thanks (:

eithr of those would be solid options, go with the $100 one. you cant really be to picky when buying used, just go with what you find.

Those boards are both really nice though

Thanks for your advice, I was just wondering if the Burton air would be able to last a while, or is it too old, and if the newer custom is worth the extra 350

without a doubt it would last a while, i still have a burton clash from 2003 that i ride on low snow level days. if you don't beat on them; boards will last a long ass time. probly not worth it for the custom.
