When you just feel like goofing off and doing stupid stuff, it's the stick to grab.
on the right

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.
Yeah mine was the edge...that's why I consider it a "real" snowboard. After that I traded my friend a 1992 Donruss Elite Signature Series Will Clark baseball card for a 1986 burton elite with the v-tail. This was in 1992. I'm not sure which is worth more money now.

Butron Elite 150 circa 1988.

It was hard finding ski resorts to let me ride back then...I remember it being the first year my local bump allowed it.

Rossignol The Core, 167(christ it was like a concrete slab). Don't remember the manufactured year since I got it used. Some generic looking bindings and Rossi boots a size too big for me lol.

First one for me was a '96 K2 Dart. I got it from the old K2 factory on Vashon Island cause my friends brother-in-law worked there. I got some Clicker boots and bindings to go with it. This board was a bitch for me to learn on. It was a 167, stiff as hell, and narrow like no other. I'm 6'3" and I have size 13 feet. This board was not made for me. My buddy took the Fat Bob that I should have had cause it was a shorter board and he was a shorter person. Man, I remember being pissed at my buddy everytime we would ride cause he couldn't even get that board down the hill and I was doing Mach 5 on a board I had no business being on. Ahh, the memories.
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
