Did you just say Kemper was a no-name company? They're long gone, but no name they were not! I'd hazard a guess that at least 50% of people that started boarding in the early 90's either rented a Kemper as their first board, or bought one as their first board.

That said, if the OP can talk the guy down to even $70 or so I'd say pick up the combo, use it as is for a bit as a first board, and pick up a new board in 2 months when the end of season sales are on. Win-win...

Yea that's what I am thinking, also the customs are like new only used ~10 times and they are from 2011 so that's why I'm planning to offer 70$ ten upgrade my board in a few months

Ok maybe not no name back in the day, but this isn't exactly back in the day. It's worst almost nothing nowdays.

That said, you're suggestion to get the set-up for $70 if possible is a great idea. It's like buying the bindings for $50 and having a 3 month rental for another $20. Plus, you can use it as a practice board/thrasher once you pick up a new one.

Fuck yeah! I rode the balls off my '95 Kemper Freestyle. They called it a freestyle but it was actually pretty damn stiff and quite heavily cambered. I even raced the thing a bit in high school!

I still have mine in the basement, was debating about bringing it out in the spring for a retro-day!

Shit! I had the opposite happen. Bought a no-name board in '94, inserts pulled right out on the first run! Brought it back, store was going out of business, owner went over to the wall and took the Kemper (with an MSRP of $750) off the wall and gave it to me!

I think Kemper, like burton, had a rental line and a regular line. Unfortunately many people hated the Kemper rental line. Some of their stuff was actually really good for the '90s! If I haven't yet posted a pic of the '95 FS I'll do that soon...

Love the pink! lol I think this first example is Vanilla Ice...



Here's what my Kemper looked like, I'll have to get pics of mine. Complete with an epoxy repair I did to it after a skier gouged my edge. The epoxy is still there!
