So I own a bunch of old gear that I grew out of, and Nobody is buying it (tried craigslist, ebay, local flyers) and I dont really need anything new right now. I've got a nice board set up already, gear, etc.
Anyway, so I went down to the local gear swap and they have a 1987 Sims Switchblade there with some regular, semi-modern bindings installed on it. the store said they would trade it for some of my gear (not even all of it) any time.
I ride mainly steeper terrain, some trees, backcountry (hike in, board out) and all that fun stuff. not really into parks or anything but thought this board would be super fun anyway. Just something different to ride.
I would like some opinions though, because I've never ridden a board like this, nor do i know what its like to ride. has anyone ever ridden one? any reasons i shouldn't or should get it? Whats it like to ride one? Is there anything else I should do with my gear? Etc Etc?
