Last February I snowboarded for the first time in Pennsylvania and since then I fell in love with the sport and wanted to pursue it as a hobby. I've been buying necessary gear for my trip next winter(jacket, pants, thermals, goggles, etc), but I wasn't sure whether or not I should buy a board, boots and bindings. I figured I'd hold off another year, but I found a board on Craigslist and wanted to get some advice from board experts. See deception below.
"AM/ Morrow 158 Snowboard with Burton Custom Bindings. The bindings were 199.99 when purchased new. Really good shape and a really fun board to ride. I have no use for it now so this is why i'm letting it go.Its Italian made. Make an offer. It comes with a padded airplane, carrying bag which is a 79.99 value it self."
Questions from bimmerman1985:
Is this the right size board for me? I've been told to look for 157-160 (see information below)
Is this a good deal? Whats a fair price?
I understand that Morrow is a cheaper broad made from K2, but does it matter since I wont be using it that often and I'm a beginner?
Is there anything I should inspect on these bindings and/or board if you suggest I buy?
I weigh 175lb
I'm a noob; of course
I'm not looking to do any tricks, just down hill boarding
I plan on snowboarding maybe 1-3 day a "year", so again the board wont be used that often
Thanks for reading
