Heres the Board I Picked Up, Opinions?

So the seller was supposed to sell me a Burton Bullet board, instead I found out it was really a Royale. I knocked him down $20 from his original price, hes a douche for advertising the wrong thing and not telling me before I drove the 100 miles round trip to pick up. Anyways it turned out not to be that bad because the board I got is still kick ass, and everything is in almost new condition. Here are pics:

Board- Burton Royale
Bindings- Ride Delta Movement
Boots- Burton Hail







Oh damn, this should prob go in the photography forum.. Too lazy to transfer lol, a mod will be on it soon

Thanks guys, I think its pretty sick too. I just hope it rides good, I know I'm gonna have to adjust the bindings cause I dunno how he rode the board with his right foot at such an angle.

Good to hear, not I'm just gonna need to know from you guys how to change the angle on the bindings- and what I should change it to for free riding comfort and park in case I decide to go nuts once I get my feet wet- I missed a season of riding so I need to warm back up.

I also looked up some reviews on it, basically a great intro/ intermediate board- on the springy side. Not the most stable for high speed, good for park and all around riding, lots of positive reviews on it. I'm happy as long as it rides good, I'll know next week.

Yes sir, craigslist for the win.

And Kyle I'd really appreciate that. I'm gonna go ahead and google what effect the angle has tomorrow when I'm not working.

Looks like a solid deck. It's got capped edges (though I guess all new boards do these days), which is a good start. Any idea which core it has?

EDIT: Just read some reviews. Sounds like a good entry-to-mid level board. Only "complaints" against it were that it's a bit soft for extreme back country or high speed, but that this was countered by how fun it is to goof around on. I'd say good buy.
