Well its only a 132cm board. First of all how much do you weigh? I dont know much about the board but I do know it's meant for someone that is probably around 70-100lbs.

As long as that board is the right size for your weight it will be a great board to learn on. You do however need to put your bindings on the board correctly. Your ratchets should always be on the outside edge of your bindings.

Not that it matters but its about 230 new from most online sites...

We still need to know your weight/height in order to tell you if its the right size...

That said you wont get more than 125-150ish trying to sell it privately if thats what you have in mind....

155 @ 5'9" you should be on a 150cm or more, your 132 is far to short.

I think the bindings are supposed to be like that. They're Burton Speedzones. I saw a pair of 2009 p1.1 SZ and they had the ratchets on the inside also.
