Default Anyone ever seen wood like this? I doubt it!

This is the board i'll be using this year in memory of old school snowboards. I'd say it was probably made in 1999. The brand says Spry. I've never heard of Spry before though. Says made in austria on it and it is the model known as "spinach" heres pics of the board. Along with new bindings.

P.S
Anyone else think its funny when your friends ditch their setups they paid $500 for to ride your 10 year old board?

Nothing stgange, or interesting in this board.
If you want to check out something way more interesting, check out some Swell Panik, Pogo, Virus or anothor alpine or powder boards. They got all the modern tech, and even more, but looks like they're main in 1980s...

It's more funny that you think they would actually give up their boards for yours. I would step off my board in a heartbeat to demo an old school board, but that doesn't mean I want to trade my setup for one.

Hell, this thing is sitting in our office:



I want to ride it so bad.

P.S. I'm not being rude, I just had a moment of wanting to be a smart ass

who wud want to trade a brand new board for a 10 year old one? i didnt say trade. did i? i mean i understand u dont mean to be rude. but dont be an ass and jump to conclusions. i know that nobody would want to trade me their board for mine which doesnt really bother me. But all my friends love to ride it. They spend more time on my board than they do on theirs half the time. I mean does "ditching their boards" not mean that they ride mine more than theres?
Does "ditching" translate to wanting to trade? if it does i mean i guess i can change my wording. sorry man but other ppl have the urge to be a smart ass every once in a while too. cough cough (me)
