He must baby his shit cause all my boards look worse after 1 day.

It has Ride EX's on it, what's the word on those?

The deck is 2 or 3 years old & I'm not sure about the bindings.
I paid $150 for the whole setup, did I do good?

This will be my 25th year riding & I've probably owned well over a hundred boards, but I've never ridden a Ride board before.
For some reason I have always thought they were shitty, no real reason & nothin' to back it up so hopefully I've been wrong.

Dude was apparently a photographer & had enough wicked brand new gear in his garage to open his own little shop.
He had about 20 boards & as I was flippin through them, low & behold a Proto CT. I pulled it out from behind all the other boards & he said "That's the only one I have to give back, it's not for sale" Damn it

He had this years Ride El Hefe bindings for $150, they are $400+tax
So I talked him down to an even $100.
I don't know how good they actually are, but boy they look fuckin' perty.
They even come in a beer cooler.

Now it's torture, I can't handle it I'm going insane. I'm gonna have to build something to ride on.

TT
You definately got a good buy at that price, can you post some pics of it sitting on a benchtop or something to show its rocker profile?
