Like you said, cheaper stuff. Great for a beginner or a budget. Let us know some more stuff like your height, weight, style and level and we can tell you more.

I noticed a 56 in one pic. Is that board a 156?

Also, grats on the purchase. Hope it gets you into the sport!

At 130 pounds, that might be a bit big for park riding, but it could work on the mountain well. Don't be fooled into thinking that height is what you use to buy a board. Weight and riding style are far more important.
