Default Looking for a first board...

Hey, I've been snowboard like 6 times over the past 8 years. The past year I went twice and got a lot better. I really like hitting jumps, but failed at riding a box. So I think I like more freestyle/ cutting sharp turns and stuff.

I'm not looking to spend a lot of $. I can get a local used Hyperlite 153cm board for $100 w/ bindings. I couldn't find any info on it, but is that a good board?

Using a snowboard size calculator they said I should have a little smaller size too (like 151 maybe). I rented a 153 or 154 last time. I'm like 5'10" 140-150lbs and 10.5 boots.

Any advice would be great.

Or, here is a 151 Life board for $150 shipped (unless someone else on here gets in a bidding war with me).
