Boards You Wish You Didn't Have
How many of you are / were disappointed with a purchase? Give us not only the name of the deck, but more importantly, what was it about the board that disappointed you?
I'll start. I'm a solid intermediate rider, 200 lbs. Demo'd a LIB Lando 161 and thought I loved it. Bought it.
However, the more I rode it the more I realized how hard I had to ride it to get it to perform. I found it to be much stiffer than any other board I had rode and as a result, even at 200 lbs and a decent skill set, I really had to "manhandle" it on the hill and that got tiring after a half a day on the hill. It was also my first CRC board and I discovered that profile is not for me. It is probably going to the ski / board swap in October.
Get it. Wax it. Ride it.
