First setup was a Lamar snowboard with some low end K2 bindings.

The board lasted me many years, I beat the shit out of it on school trips and backyard jumps but it held up fine. The base was incredibly slow and it was too stiff but I still had fun on it. It got me into the sport.

Lib Attack Banana 159
Lib Skate Banana 159
Burton Bullet 159w
Union Force bindings
Burton Grail boots

2007 Volkl Summit 158 ,fun very wide cambered board, directional , setback 30mm.I still ride it from time to time and never see anyone on one, ever.
The bindings were crappy Heads that once you strapped in, you needed a knife or screwdriver to release the buckles.These were quickly replaced with some Cartels which made actual riding possible.

it was most likely a Barfoot

First board was a burton elite 155 with k2 cinch bindings. Super stiff but overall not a bad board to learn on. Rode it for 4 seasons then I got smart and decided I wanted to progress in the park and got my horrorscope FK

I had a Black Snow 'Legend', damn thing didn't even come with edges - you had to go to the 'Edge' to get that luxury. My dad wanted to save $20 so he bought me the one without edges which I affectionately refer to it now as the 'Cafeteria Tray' because I had about as much control with a cafeteria tray as I did with that abomination. All you could really do was point and shoot. Broke my tailbone pretty damn good on that POS. Good times.
