Default What was your first snowboard?

What was your first real snowboard deck that you owned? Exclude Wal-Mart boards and stuff like that.

Mine was a Burton Punch 142. I remember my dad surprised me with it after a couple months of snowboarding on a shitty Outrage board. He also got me a Burton Jacket, Pants, Boots, and Bindings. All this stuff cost him a pretty penny, I'd imagine, and I was so happy. Thanks Dad! (Shortly after that, he wanted to try out snowboarding for himself! He was about 45 at that time, and bought a chinsy Outrage for himself. He didn't get too far down the bunny hill..)

I don't even remember the brand. It had a big paw on the base and morrow bindings. I bought it at a pawn shop in Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA. It was wide, but it hauled ass. I sold it to a guy on my boat for more than I paid for it.

It was a 158 Elevation Movement that I picked up off of CL for like $50. I still have it. It's completely covered in stickers now. I still take it out occasionally. It's a lot of fun. It was a really soft cambered stick to begin with and at this point has pretty much had the camber ridden out of it. When you just feel like goofing off and doing stupid stuff, it's the stick to grab.

A Lamar Impact 155 when I was 13. Too big and stiff.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

pretty sure mine was a 1995 K2 Hardcore, 161.

As far as I know, my friend Jay is still riding that stick out in Tahoe - I gave it to him back in 2004 since I wasn't using it.

An Ride womens board from the 90s with a lame ass picture of a dragon my cousin sharpie'd on when he was 10 and shitty ride bindings also from the 90s with broken toe ratchets. I wore running shoes on my first day...

Last season a Technine Split T adn Technine bindings. I needed a setup and Sun Diego was clearing out all their snow stuff. I actually bought it before ever going boarding. Got them new for a little over $130 so I can't complain. I am looking for a new getup this summer (or even now) though, as I have definitely outgrown it.
