Default How to stop buying a new board?

yeah... i really don't NEED a new board, but i really want this 32 snowboard, its reg camber 152 (perfect jump board). My current Subzero is 2 years old now.

I have arguments for and against buying it, but i was wondering what you guys do in order to avoid buying another board that is sooo goddamn enticing.

build up a sentimental bond with your current bond so that you'll feel bad about replacing it haha

Get it. You're not as bad as me yet. I went from 3 to 6 to 3 this season, and probably adding 2-3 more next season.

If you don't like it, it will be easy to sell on Ebay.

I'm having serious issues with this myself. I just picked up #4 for this year. Hopefully this one will break the cycle. In my defense, the first two were bought on impulse before I had any idea what my boarding preferences were. My new theory is if you want to buy another, make sure to sell one. At least that way there's some method to the madness.
