hey, I have been going snowboarding about 3-4 times past 2 years, always renting here in SoCal.
anyway, a friend gave me an old board that he had been using. It is a Morrow Source 159cm ( I am 5'11, boot size 11, 200lb ) It looks preety beat up. I don't know anything about this brand or board. Is it good for beginners?
Ill try to post some pics of how it looks soon.:
since it is missing bindings, or it has one but it is all rusty. I need to buy bindings for them, which I am thinking of getting Burton Freestyle or for $30 more the Burton customs(will they fit?)
That is my option I have or, buy a brand new board like Burton Clash or Burton bullet (on sale ) + bindings , also I have seen the Burton TWC on sale but I looked at the burton website and the biggest board is not meant for my weight, would it be a big deal if I did go for the TWC 158 Wide?

Reason: added pictures
Id say its a good snowboard for the beginner for sure, esp for free!
My advice would be spend the extra $$ you saved by not buying the board and get the Customs. They are a good beginner binding that can take you to intermediate or further. Get that thing tuned (wax, edge sharpen, base grind if needed) then ride that board until you you are a confident novice/intermediate.
Then do some solid research and spend all the rental money you saved a new board in 1-2 seasons!
