The seller had to package it someway to send it to you. Reuse whatever he used.

I feel bad for you on this one, especially since we're all piling on. I've got a camber Burton SW from 06 that's in great shape that I've hung onto as a rock board, but haven't used for that purpose. If you want to pay shipping on it, it's yours no charge. IIRC it's a 154

I'm from NYC though and I checked craigslist around here but didn't see anything great. Thought this board was reasonably priced if it was in a good condition but I had no idea it was from a previous era or that the seller was using it to bash things.

It's the first time I'm buying my own gear and I guess a lesson to learn...

Contacted the seller and now the ball's on his court. Hope he's reasonable.

I was so excited to get my first snowboard I cut it up lol. It was just cardboard and bubble wrap anyway though.

Didn't know that... perfect if the return shipping can be covered too!

Wow thanks for the offer! Unfortunately I think it's too big for me though... I'm looking for something around 146.

Ebay itself also has a buyer protection, file a claim through there - if the description said it was in good condition, and you provide those pictures, then you will get your money back (but it will take several weeks/month).

Just a little detail... this originally wasn't double sided tape. My Ride bindings had originally silver stickers the same size and spot with some printed manufacturers warnings; I didn't take them off before fixing the bindings on the board. When I wanted to take the bindings off after the summer, they were almost glued to the board, the stickers had soaked/dissolved and were sticky on both sides. PITA if you have a board with a wooden top

So to everyone fixing new bindings, take these warning stickers off.

the double sided tape is from back before they had screws.

Ah thanks for letting me know -- from the size of the sticker, that makes much more sense. Just wondering if you remembered what the warning said? It'd be ironic if the warning was to take the sticker off
