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....
