Zero all the way, if you wanna skate, you need to buck up and spend some serious cash on some skating stuff, my whole setup is worth about $173 , and I've never snapped a deck in my 1 year of skating, just save up some money and get a real pro board. You also should slop up your shoes with shoe goo before you even skate them, just search around for tips and tricks with skating, and be mindful that you will bust your balls more than once. Search around for a brand whose graphics and decks you like, and stay with em, but it'll take time to find 1.

the thing that breaks in bad boards is the casting part to which the wheels are mounted. the exact place of breakage is the part that goes around the screw unless you jump on it / hit it to the ground with enough force / lean too much to the side (past the point where it won't go anymore) you won't break it so for plain ride and some ground-level light tricks it should be ok enough happy skatng !

You should start off with a real board, something simple, like World Industries. But if you get really good with that board, then you can then get the pro boards. :P
