Default Anyone recognize this older board?

So my coworker who has snowboarded "back in the day" (but who I never can seem to get to come out with me *grumble*), is moving and showed up to work yesterday with a bunch of stuff and just... gave it to me. Said it need a good home and he knows I'll "put it to good use" since he sees me boarding all the time on FB. It was very nice of him and I'm not one to turn down some free stuff, lol! Most of it is outerwear (spyder and oakley) I'll probably never get lean enough to fit in to (dude is super fit) but it's good to have goals, I guess

But one of the things he gave me was his old board - anyone recognize this relic? I've never seen on of these in the stores:









Did a google search for "Palmer" snowboards and saw a few 2009s that look similar but not exact. It's obviously a camber board and pressing on it by hand, it's super stiff and looks to be 158cm.

It's still in great shape but feels a little heavy. Do you think this board will provide any benefit to my quiver or is it too old and outdated. Should I try and sell it or something?

My current boards are:
- 2012 156cm GNU Carbon credit (oldest board - what I learned on)
- 2013 153cm Libtech T.rice pro (main current board)
- 2011 157cm Ride Society UL (newest board - just picked it up under heavy discount)

It's a Palmer Crown, high quality construction when it was built with lots of tech. I'd keep it and ride it. It's unlike anything in your quiver and will accel at charging and holding an edge, assuming it's the right size and you want to ride fast.

Interesting. I was certain I was going to see responses that say the board is too old and it won't ride well compared to what I'm used to and I probably wouldn't have fun on it, etc. Glad to see it's of some value. Guess I'll throw on some bindings on it after all.

The LE says LE this one just says crown. IIRC the LE was just a lighter version of the same board.

You decide you don't like, I'll take that sucker off your hands.
