I think the question here is how much of a beginner are you? I mean if you just started and can't link a turn DO NOT spend $500 plus on a new setup that you may or may not use.

For $60 bucks if the burton and bindings are in good shape then get it.. learn on it and at the end of the season you progressed and got better buy a new setup from backcountry or local shop after April when it gets cheap.

You are exactly right

It's a 20 year old or so antique

Buy it, don't ride it.

Put it on Ebay, sell it & buy yourself a much better board

Or maybe you can find someone who will trade you a newer deck for it?

Don't think it can happen

I'm in Vancouver Canada, I had a K2 Shawn Farmer deck(not quite as old as that one) on craigslist for $50

Someone that lives in Colorado got a hold of me. He bought & traded me a 2011 Never Summer deck, paid to ship it to Vancouver, then he paid to have mine shipped to him.

Sounds a little like bull shit eh?

Turns out. The BurtonAvenger actually knows the guy who bought it.

It ain't bull shit.

Actually BA, I've been trying to get a hold of Gary. Do you see him, or are you able to relay a message to him?

If so can you get him to email me.
I'm pretty sure I have his number somewhere buried in a thousand emails, but it'll take forever to find it.

Thank you

BurtonAvenger That's like asking yourself if you want to drive a 96 Subaru Outback or a 2006. Obviously the 2006 is going to be better.
