Default Thoughts on this used setup for me?

I'm 5' 11", 160-170 lbs. Pretty novice rider that has been renting until now. Able to carve, string turns, etc. just getting tired of spending the money on rental and trying to get a cheap used setup to keep learning on. Won't be riding that frequently, mostly free ride stuff, hanging with buddies on the mountain.

Looking at a 2007 burton jussi 159 cm in good condition with burton triad bindings. $150. I'm hoping to ride this out for a few years and actually drop the big bucks down the road depending on where I'm at with time, etc.

don't know anything about the board, but based on your weight I'd look at something in the 155-157 range of boards.

Is that 2 cm gonna make a big difference? Is a board from 2007 gonna be crap?

159 is pretty big. Get something smaller like triumph.man above says.

The bigger the board the harder it is gonna be to turn and if you still learning that = less fun imo

its a pretty good set up just cause older doesn't mean its bad at all. just check the condition.

this is true. if your still learnings go with something a bit smaller. and like I said before the jussi is pretty stiff, the board might be a real handful to ride for you.

Would you think 154 is too small? Or should I really try to keep to that 155-157 range that triumph said up earlier.

154 will work, just make sure it's not to soft. For reference I'm about your weight and use a 152 (Signal Park Flat) in the park and can cruise the mt. with it. My other boards are a 155 and 163.

You could look at 154 as well. Just depends on the type of board it is. Look in that range and judge on a per-board basis
