No. I wouldn't drive a dead man's racecar either. If it is something they held dear and were passionate about it, I think the object should be retired for them. If they died of natural causes, then I could see it, but not if they were killed on the board. I'm not superstitious, I just like the idea of retiring the board.

I didn't see a "fuck no!" option, so I just checked no.

Bad Ju-Ju would be with that board. No bueno.

I agree with those who would ride it to honor there friend. As a sort of in the memory thing.

I agree with the honor a friend people. I think, if they were passionate about snowboarding, they'd appreciate it.

i would ride it for one time, paying respect and in honor of him. only one time though, because i wouldnt want to seem like i didnt care about the rider and just took his board to shred

Damn, I would never buy a bike that has been in an accident. Trust me on this one, they are never the same. Never the less one that paralyzed a human, how much can be left of the bike?

Sure, as long as it's not damaged. Why not?

Probably a bad decision. Riding a motorcycle is dangerous enough without adding in an unsafe bike.
