How much should I sell my board for?

My '08 Rome Anthem is dead. MSRP $500. Ain't poppin' like it used to, not that it had a ton of pop to begin with, after maybe 100 days of riding. In fact I thought my riding skills were regressing and for some reason my sessions have been fatiguing the hell outta me this season. I thought it was me getting old. I guess it was my board.

How do I appraise it? It's pretty well worn but the base is in good condition, no core shots, holds wax well, and the metal edges are in good condition. Now the top sheet ain't pretty. usual scuffs and chips along the edges from myself and inconsiderate bastards. Plus, imprints from my bindings, and a thousand marks from my back foot ratchets pecking the hell outta my board.

GearTrade

Check out some of the dings the snowboards on that site have. That'll give you a rough starting point. Not promising it'll sell, but its something.

$125 seems fair.

Thanks guys. Just curious, do I need to disclose how many days are on it and the board doesn't pop? Or is that the buyers responsibility to find out? I've never sold anything so worn out before.

You can always pick a rock bottm price you will accept and then put it on ebay, you may get more than you think. As for condition I would just say it has been used for 2 seasons, top sheet has usualy wear and tear, base in good condition and show pictures.
