Buying a used board
I have been going snowboarding only a couple times a year for the past 6 years and this year I got to go 5 times and I improved a huge amount. I've only ridden one board my whole life and now I want to try a new one. Someone I know has a used 2011 Never Summer SL for sale for $250. He is a pretty aggressive rider and he rode it for about 20 days this season.
So my question is, how do the characteristics of a board change after its been used for a while? Would I be better off buying a new one or save money and buy a used one. Yeah I know maybe there's not a hard solid answer to this but I just wanted to get some opinions.
The SL I'm looking at is a size 155. I'm 6'1" 185lbs size 10.5 boots so I hope that's not to small for me. I don't do any park stuff, I just cruise around and I like to go fast and maybe do a few jumps here and there. (Also maybe wondering if I should get s Legacy instead).
