Default What was a board you always wanted to have/ride, but never got the chance?

When I started back in 1998, I always wanted a Burton Seven, specifically the 2002 model with the tally marks on the base.

I didn't know anything about this board other than the fact that I loved the way it looked and the way it was described (can't remember how anymore). I can't even find images of this board, except for one tiny one on Burton Vault. :/

Funny thing is, I've never owned a Burton since I started riding. If they made the Seven today, I'd probably get one just because.

Anyone else remember a board you specifically wanted but never got the chance to ride?

Back in the late 90's I found a Burton Rippey at a really good price at a shop (of all places) in San Antonio while traveling for work. I didn't pull the trigger but I wish that I had.

Sooo many. Craig Kelly Air, Rad Air Tanker, Con Artist, Burton Dragon, SC Cookie Monster Kooly, Salomon Prospect that smelled like chocolate, Denim Kink, Sims Salasnek, Dave Lee Lib Pro Model, Jeenyus Peter Line, Dom Slick, Aztek Double Camber, Street Dweller, Burton Eco Step... soo many more though. I'll never be able to list them all.

There's a ton I'd love to own - all the Burton Brushies (I finally picked up a Cruisin this weekend), Sword, all the Sims Palmers, Craig Kelly's, old Lamars, etc., I could go on and on. Those are all for the graphics/nostalgia.

What I'd really like to ride one day more than anything is one of the old asym race type boards, like a PJ. I always thought those would be fun, but never had a chance before they seemed to have gone away.

I rode a 156 rippey with th ehot chick on the moon. Probably my 2nd favorite board ever.

If you ever find another one, let me know -- you won't be dissappointed.

Burton stone Hut. I'd be interested to buy one in the larger size. (155?)
