Never Summer Evo for less than $500?

Hey I'm looking to get my brother a new board as a gift and I've been shopping around for the evo but can't really find it for less than 500 or 450. Anyone here know if they'll go on sale soon or where I can get a lightly used one that's still in good shape? Any of you want to sell yours? haha I appreciate the help, Thanks.

Nothing wrong with it, but something wrong with me. Around the same time buying it, I grabbed a K2 WWW because, well it was $140 new. Now, these two are not the same. The Proto is much more capable all-mtn than the WWW. I do feel it is a more aggressive park board that can handle the rest of the mountain. But after it softens up (which it hasn't yet), I'll have two soft park boards, one that is mid-flex, and one that is slightly stiffer than the noodle.

The Proto was stable, but did get pushed around at the end of a pow day so I want something more aggressive. Maybe even camber. We'll see. It's a fun board, high quality, strong base as always. If I didn't have the WWW, I'd keep it 100%. I can see it as being perfect when it softens up as my park board for local mountains. If I had more money I'd sell the WWW and keep it

Keep it. By the end of next season that K2 will be worth exactly diddley squat and if you don't bin it you'll at least have a rock board for another cali drought season...meanwhile that proto will be breaking in nicely giving you another 5 years at least. No brainer dude...

I mean, just look at the discounts on K2 and Ride boards every year. Anyone who is buys that stuff new, full retail is, uhm...a little misinformed...

What does resale have to do with it? The Proto is never going to be a fun jibstick like WWW, the dude paid $140 for it, he's probably lost more resale value in the proto HD than that already as soon as it was shipped.

Some might suggest it's a reasonable indicator of quality.
