Default looking for a used set up in decent shape for a good price

my nephew (13) has been out riding a few times & really wants to get more into it. he'd like to get his own board so he can go out with me & his other aunt. his mom doesn't have much money to throw down on a good set up though, so i thought i'd look around & see if i can find someone's used gear for a kind price to help this kid out!

he's a pretty big guy...almost 6 foot & 180 lbs. i'm thinking about a 158 will due for his size.

let me know if any of you have any extra gear that you don't really use anymore, that you could maybe let go for a cheap price to help another kid lay out his line! it'd be super-kynd of ya!

thanks!

that's awesome, thanks bro! i'll ask him this morning when i see him. i'm thinking his feet are probably about a 10.
we could pay you for the shipping, which would probably be about $20.

hmm...turns out he wears a size 12 in skate shoes. boots usually run a size or two smaller, so they may work...but maybe not.

are you trying to sell them, or would they be a kick down? and again, i'm not sure what size boot would fit him. i'm going to take him up today or tomorrow & get him sized so i at least have something to go by.

with feet that big will a regular width board be okay or is he going to need something wider?

all i gotta say is you guys (here & there...everywhere) kick ass!

i posted the same request up on myspace & this girl i know from festivals responded saying she's got a Salomon 161 Substance that she's barely ridden that she can let go of.

think it'd be too big for him?

now i just need to score him some bindings & boots that fit & he'll be shredding!

you guys are awesome & he's going to be so super stoked! there's no way his mom woulda/coulda pulled this off & if left to her he'd still just be wishin'.

so i give thanks!

not looking to kill your pockets but a small "donation" would surely be accepted.

I may have a pair of Drake MTX bindings that I could part with for cheap also. You will have to duck tape the strap on one of them until you can get drake to send you a new one. I got them to send me what I though I needed but I was wrong...I just called them again to try and get the part. If so all I would ask for is like $20 and shipping and we'd be cool
