Barbara That's bad thinking, you should not go for the easiest, but for something with quality, the time you think you'll win at the top of the hill you will loose with other problems you'll have with that bindings, but... try and see, than I want to know if you think the same way
You are as tall as I am and I ride a 151, and I weigh 140, not to mention I'm a girl. What can I say, if I were you I would check before I buy, not after. But, since you can not turn back now, I hope you fit good with the board and enjoy it. Don't worry that much, I've seen friends of mine riding with shorter boards and with goofy feet being regular, that went pretty well
As for the board, I can't say anything, I never heard of that brand, we don't have it here in Portugal, so I don't know if it's good or bad, wait for someone more experient to reply to you. But, from what I see, I would never get things from that brands but, $200 is not bad for board and bindings in second hand. It will certainly work for you to play a little and have some fun, when you see it sucks just buy good stuff, that kind of money you spent for the gear is the money you are saving in rentals for the season, so next season, if you get better and really like the sport, buy new one, BUT ASK FIRST, you can find great deals when you search in the right places and ask the right people.

Good luck with your new equipment

im kind of short i think im 5'5 maybe 5'6 so yeah i mean the thing isnt gonna break underneath me right and i only chose the bindings cause they look easy to get into and save me some time at the top of the hill i guess that was a newb move but yeah is the board a peice of crap to or is that not bad and did i get ripped off paying 200 for all of it?

Barbara How tall are you? Just by your weight I would say it's way to small for you, 'tough they say you should start with smaller board, but I'm not the person that knows best about this, kirkwood will answer you eventually

Anyway... hate the bindings, bad choice there...

weight question?

hey guys i am very new to the sport, i have gone 3 times now and i enjoyed it alot. So i figured that it was time to buy my own set up. So i was looking around on ebay for a board and i found a m3 discord size 152 came with flow amp9 bindings and i payed 200 for it. not sure if thats a good price but thats realy not my concern. Since its a since i have help a 152 and it came up to my lip i figured that would be the right board size for me what i didnt know is that weight was a factor i weigh about 180 and im scared that i made the wrong decision. Will this board be fine for me or will it split under my feet? id apreciate it if any one could help me out thank you. here is the link to the board i purchased
