I purchased a 2012 Raygun, 2012 Cartels, and Burton Grail's as my first set up. Reading stuff like this makes me get a nice grin on my face
I scored my first setup this year. Also a 2012 Raygun 159, 2012 Formulas, & 2013 32 Lashed 9.5's in white...
I got the deck and bindings from Evo.com for mad cheap. $225 for the board and $118 for the bindings with free shipping!
Of course they won't ship K2 to Canada so I had to have family reship it and all that shit. Still a great deal on what seems to be a great board. Hiking Shames with it tomorrow.
