Question about board or rental
I am a new boarder like brand new only been twice. But my buddy he is hardcore into it and he has this jones mountain twin that he is offering to rent to me at 50 bucks for the whole season which would be much cheaper than renting every time. So I was curious as to whether or not this would be a good board to learn on? He said that it is softer than his other board so he doesnt really like using it and from what I have gathered thus far that is a good thing. It has a camrock design so I don't really know if that's good for a beginner. But I don't really like the park stuff I ride with him and he mainly goes off the beaten path so I need a board that's good for that plus he said if I like it he will sell it to me for 200 so that's pretty sweet too considering. Anyhow some info about me I'm 22 6'2" 195-200 lbs I climb all the time, I lift, I run yadayada basically I have a somewhat athletic background so what do you guys think?
