Ideas on my ancient board?
 
Hey don't really use forums that much but i can't seem to find any info about this board anywhere :(
I bought it like 8-9 years ago from like a market/Car boot thingy 55, i figured it was a bargain an put it to use on some dry slopes.
Now i am onto the real stuff when i can, snow domes when i can't :)
Here are a few pic's any info would be great.

Oh yeah for sure, it's a Cross Bow Limited Edition Camille Brichet by Nidecker. It's Swiss Made and 156cm. It's got some shitty old bindings and a Nitro sticker.

He bought it already, he's just curious about the board.

@Grubius, I'm not going to be able to help much, but to clarify because I was confused, are you curious as to whether you could use that on the slopes well or...?

I have used it a few times an it seems ok to me, as a noob though that is :D
I was just after basic info if anyone knew, like price when it came out, specs if poss, what its made from an such, whether it was a from a line of boards or a 1 off, whether it was deemed as a good board or just a piece of junk, i would like to know about it rather than just grab the latest season board an pose like most people, ( thanx for your comment Lstarrasl ).

If it performs well enough for your needs, then all of the other information is just trivial. Why upgrade to a brand new board if you don't feel the need to?

You could just buy a new board to start a quiver and still ride your old one.

Grubius 06-06-2010 09:55 AM

Hehe that's exactly my point Leo i don't want to go and get a new board hence the fact i wanna know more about this one.
I know it may seem trivial but i like to understand the history of things i use, i also sent a message to Nidecker, just waiting for a reply.
Maybe i can put any info i get back up here in case anyone else has a similar board.
A friend said the cut part at the back means its just for slope and not park etc, is this right?

although you never really know how shitty your board is until you jump on a new board and you're like DAMN, why was i riding that pos hah.

Straight tail tips generally denote directional, free-ride usage. So technically, it wasn't built for freestyle. Doesn't necessarily mean you can't do park with it. You'll just have a harder time jibbing with it.

There really is no functionality for a straight tip. The upcoming 2011 Burton Ration even gives you the option to cut your own tip and tail shape.

Now, if you have a swallow tail snowboard, that is a different story. The upside down V-Cut in swallow tips give you better control for turns in powder.
