Alder heritage vs blackboard glider???

Hi all.
After a bit of advice. I'm looking at buying my first board as I'm fed up of renting everytime I went to get in. I've been looking and can't decide between a blackboard glider 8' from the place in st erth or an alder heritage from down the line in hayle. What are your thoughts?

What's your budget, and why have you singled out those two? 8' is a good starting size IMO. Big enough to catch a lot but not so big it's a chore to handle.

The £360 asking price could get you a really well made second hand board instead of a poorly made new one.
Go the second hand route bud, the blanks and glassing on these cheap package deals isn't great.
