true... but the thing im worried about, is when this one shits out on me, and my rome does too, ill have no money to buy a new one of the same quality, because i bought both of these off of a friend who passed away in a car wreck (RIP K DAWG) for VERY cheap, and i guess why i dont want to hack em up is because i will never find a deal like this again haha, idk it must be my fucked up mind or something lol.

well it doesn't really matter how cheap you got it for - if you bought a snowboard and don't ride it you wasted your money.

sorry about your friend.... but if he was dead he shoulda just gave em to you for free... he don't need it anymore

I believe you are the only person with this problem. I don't know anyone who buys a snowboard to ride and does not ride it. The thing is made for snow. Get out there and put it to it's purpose.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Yeah, not meaning to apply the guilt screws (ok, yes I am) but you should honour your friend's memory by riding that thing. I'm sure he would have (or did). Once it's beaten to the point of unridability you can put it up on a wall or something.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

You have to shred your friends board, its the only way. Then after its beat to hell, you can mount and and cherish the good times.
