Can you indentify this board?

I bought this board (without bindings) & boots for about 180 $. I was told it cost 700 $, and the boots 450 $, both bought 3-4 years ago.
This is my first board, and I would like to know more about it... It's quite soft (I don't know what normal is, but i felt a big difference while riding a friend's harder board).
But at RIDE's website there is nothing about it... here, under "Other Ride Boards", there is just a broken link... does anybody know more?

thx!

Says right on it..Ride DH

From a quick search it looks like 05/06 Ride DH...

At 180 dollars it not a great deal, but not a huge ripoff either.

They were blowing smoke up your ass that the board costs 700 dollars, you can get a brand new 2010 DH for about 330 bucks. And 450 dollar boots...wow either this guy really got robbed himself, or we are not talking American dollars. For 450 dollars my boots better have some gold plating or something...even some of the most expensive boots out there like the Burton ION's are only 400 retail brand new.

ouch... I should've seen that.... thank you :P

Do you think it's a good board for a beginner?


And about the 700 dollars, he said 750 swiss francs... I converted it quickly with google...
"750 Swiss francs = 692.64900 U.S. dollars"

Anyway, he said he didn't pay much for the board cause he had sponsors and idk what more.

Well I've been looking around at ridesnowboards.com, and I saw the HD's cost 500 $.... but changing the location to switzerland, the prices are around 800 CHF

Yea i can see the prices being considerably higher out of the US...so that makes more sense.

The board should work fine for you although i am not a fan of using used boots. Its like winning the lottery for them to fit you properly.

I think I won the lottery ...
It's hard to get them on, but they fit perfectly once I manage to put my feet in.
