  Used is good, but as a first buy

You may not know what is good or you and if the price is fair.

You also do not know how to paddle, if this is your first kayak, so you can't really say that the paddle that works for you today will be good for you in a few seasons.

A 230 or even 220 cm paddle, if used with anything but the laziest and most inefficient low angle stroke is too long in a single kayak that is under 3 feet wide ...

Get adjustable length paddle, err on the side of small or medium size blade. Epic Relaxed Tour, Aquabound something or other adjustable, etc... The lighter the blades, the easier on you. Werner Kalliste or Cyprus would be great choices too, but they are not adjustable and they are $$$.
