If I remember right its the old Uninc shape but beefed up a little. Not the greatest jib board, maybe a decent jump board. But how cheap is cheap? Under 350 have at it, over, not worth it.

Snowboarding Is...

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

The X8 was Burton's top of the line true twin park board since it was first introduced a handful of years back. It's always had all of Burton's best technologies and construction. It was cambered up until the 2009/2010 model when it got Burton's V-Rocker reverse camber. On Burton's Feel (flex) Scale it's a 3 out of 10 so it's not as soft as boards like the Blunt and the Hero which are 2s. The MSRP for the 2009/2010 X8 was $650.

Yeah, that's the 2008-2009 model with normal full camber. It's MSRP was $600.

It's hard to tell if there's any serious damage or not, but if not, I'd say that $100's probably a good price...

You should try to take it for a test ride before committing to buy since it's not like one more day of use is going to (significantly) devalue it or anything...

For $100 definitely go for it.

I rode the 157 a few days last season. It's got a super fast base but it's not very damp so it's kind of a mixed bag but if you are a pretty confident rider you could send it off big jumps easily. You can press it pretty well but maybe not the greatest jib board but you could definitely make it work. Burton rates this thing a "3" on the flex scale but I didn't think it was that soft...

isn't this the one that changes color based on the temperature?

either way, would be a good pick up for $100! even just as a start of the season/rock deck!

If your board is in perfect condition at the end of the season, you're doing it wrong!

Been on one for the last 2 seasons, previous years X8 but not a ton of changes..

Good:

Super fast base, honestly for a park board it's pretty sick.
Lightweight. It's nowhere near vapor light but still lighter than almost all my buddies boards (not a huge selling point, but just pointing it out)
Cambered. Holds an edge really well and is very stable at high speeds for a "park" board.
Lots and lots of pop.

Bad: (or less than ideal in some situations)
Not that soft (the flex rating is a little misleading). This isn't a rail specific board. Nor is it a great board for buttering.
ICS Channel. To get the most out of it you'll need to buy EST bindings, which are more expensive. There's a few manufactures that make an adapter plate for this, and you can run other burton bindings on it, but it's an ICS mount so you might as well go with the EST bindings.

It's a fun enough board for me to keep around for BoarderX races due to the base (that is saying something for a park board) and hitting the larger jumps, but due to the flex and camber it's not very playful for the rail/butter stuff. The board in the picture is not a V-Rocker shape, it is cambered.

Yeah the topsheet colors change a bit based on temperature.

It's hard to find a reason not to buy it for $100.
