Noob looking at boards

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?

Additional information:
I'm 5'11''
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

If you only plan on using it 1-3 times per year then its fine. I don't like k2 very much but thats coming from a dude in utah. But for that minimal of use its fine. A 158 would be a good size if your just looking to shred and not do any sort of park shtuff. But if you live around the snow I would put a little more money into a new board and go more often its super addicting
