Is this a good deal for a first board?

Hey, I'm wanting to buy my first board. I've been boarding like 6 times over the course of 8 years. I'm beginner/intermediate. How good of a deal/board is this: A morrow dimension board with heel side bindings. Used for $130. This is the only pic I could find:



I think it is a 2000. Is that too old if it is in ok condition?

What do you think? I'm looking for something for hitting small jumps, spinning, carving some. Leaning more towards freestyle than freeride.


Thanks

you can find much better/recent boards for a little extra cash.
a good $160-180 will find you an excellent board from the 07 or 08
season you can progress on.

no.

Alright thanks. I was wondering about that. I just need to be patient I guess.

Actually, the guy selling it says it is a 2007. I have 1 hour to decide. Should I get it?

Thanks

there are plenty of decent boards to be had on Dogfunk.com and the-house.com that are brand new for $200. Keep looking.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Without bindings though. I can prolly save ~100$ to buy used.

Thanks though

Why even bother asking for advice if your totally going to disregard it?

I checked out Dogfunk.com and the-house.com like he suggested. I appreciated his input as it could only help, but for me I don't mind a used board, and it will always be cheaper than new.
