157 Gnu Carbon Highbeam
157 Gnu Street Series
152 Gnu Street Series
155 DC PBJ
154 Gnu Street Series BTX

When i was 14 i picked up my first board and I have rode almost every single popular brand board and I always seem to put my money on Gnu...my first board i didnt know anything about snowboarding, i only payed $200 for my board so i though it was crappy but my dad knew a guy who was a wholesaler...didnt really clue in that my board was any good until i started buying magazines and seeing my board in photos, might just be brand loyalty or maybe they build solid boards they are still a rider company so i can live with my choices. next year looking at adding the devus walsh pro model DC to my collection.

Does taking the trucks off your skateboard count?
This was the first board I bought, cost me $250 and about 6 weeks of putting money down on layaway back in 91. Although mine was used and cut down to a new school shape and I covered it up with skate stickers. I remember it was a pain in the ass to adjust my stance because the board was set up for regular foot, and the shop wanted to charge $2.50 per hole to drill out new holes for a goofy stance even after I had just paid the most money for anything in my life at the time. I think I actually said fuck that and never came back to that crappy store.

Some GNU with an elephant on it. I think it was a Temple Cummins but I could be wrong.
Preston bindings and some Skechers boots. Yes, they had boots before.

Hey, I remember that Kemper! Yes, cool! Mine was a 1991 Burton Air 6, with 3-strap bindings. I started in LaCrosse pac boots, which was pretty normal at the time. That was my senior year in high school. I was the only snowboarder in the student body and first ever in the "ski club". Pics from same and subsequent years, breaking new ground.

1st - 1995 Burton Contact - It was green. The tail broke after a couple days riding.
2nd - late 90s k2 - Not sure of the model, picked it up used. Rode it until it was stolen in 2000.
3rd - Kemper Upland - Got it cheap rode the heck out of it. Too much chatter once I got better.
Current - 2008 K2 Podium

Bought a Quiksilver Daggers 150 last year (slightly too small) for about $130. The board performs surprisingly well, though it's a bit stiff. Learning to turn on it was a pain, but now it rips up the mountain

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

I wish I still had it...I'm sure it is worth more than my MC Kink. I'm trying to figure out how I bought all of the boards I had back then. Man I miss the 93 Brushie.
