Thinking about picking up a used Burton Custom 158 w/ cartel bindings

My concerns are is this a good board for me:
I went snowboarding a couple times last season and picked it up quick and am an average rider

I am about 5'7 around 130lbs and was wondering if this board will be easy for me to control and if the board is right for me

I will wait for the super knowledgeable people to chime in, but I am sure that board is way too big for you and would be a bitch to learn on / control.

How about a k2 brigade for $150?

yep, if you are on a budget it is not worth it to be picky, try to find a board made in the last 3 years. Size is the most important thing.

As long as it doesn't have big gouges in the base or sides then id say it is worth what he is asking for the board and bindings. It is a better than good first board and should last you several seasons.
