Is this a good site to buy from? I've been skeptical to buy from a site with used boards because I can't see it in person for condition.

Do you mean the forum here? To each his own but I like to look and touch most things before I buy. I also like eBay for some stuff (just bought bindings there) because the item has to be exactly as described or you can dispute it.

Only time I've EVER been burned with an online transaction was buying some car parts through a forum, sent the guy money (via paypal personal transfer) and he never send the parts. Thought I could trust him because he was a forum member. My mistake.

Are you talking about GearTrade.com? The site I linked to? Because the seller is backcountry.com (note not all sellers are backcountry.com, just the one I linked to) I trust them to honestly state the condition of the board. I've bought a couple of used items and they were exactly as described.

I was talking about the GearTrade.com site. I see, I didn't realize it was linked to Backcountry.com.
