Age of Snowboard

Does anyone know how to find out how old a snowboard is. I have a burton 42 twin snowboard, it seems to be in good condition but I have no idea how old it is.

ride it til it's broke then use it for when the rocks start poking out :P
You can use it for as long as you like riding it. You'll see a few people will join this forum because the board they've been riding since the dinosaurs roamed finally gave out and they want to know what is going on in the world of board tech in order to replace a much loved deck. Don't worry about age too much unless that time has been in harsh conditions or had a negative effect on it.
