Im looking for a cheap beginner setup, bindings and board, boots are taken care of. this board is for my dad, weight around 210, 5'10 or so. im a ski racer who just got into hardbooting, and my dad just started ski patrolling, and wants to try it out, thinks it looks like a blast.

looking to spend under 150 if possible.

thanks

Erik

<td><font size="+2" color="#FFFF00">This slalom board is snappy and responsive, yet a good beginner board. The short length makes it light (less swing weight) and very maneuverable. Its fairly wide waist allows you to ride with lower stance angles, which many beginners find helpful. The 8.7 meter sidecut radius is happiest blasting short arcs--particularly useful if you ride steep, narrow trails or carve on more crowded slopes. I think it'll work well for your dad (and would be much easier to pull a sled with than a mongo-long GS board), but be advised he comes in at the high end of the recommended weight range (I also weigh 210).</font> </td>

<tr><td><img src="http://tinypic.com/jzddl"></td><tr><td><font size="+2" color="#FFFF00">It has been down the hill a few times (about 35-40 days of athletic riding on it) and shows scuffs and some small dings on topsheet. Base and edges are clean, sharp, and in good repair. <p></p>He'll learn on it quickly and easily, and will quickly progress to ripping exciting, high speed arcs.<p></p>Stoke him up!<p></p>

$50 plus shipping.
