An odd dillema

I have $700 worth of credit at dogfunk that I need to spend before December 31st. I currently have a lib trs c2 and I think that is sufficient since I only get to go on 3-4 trips each year, about 15-20 days. I don't really need a quiver, and it's not fun to travel with more than one board.

Thinking of buying either a dark series, a coda, or a proto since those are the three boards I would like to try one day. But the more I think about it the more it just seems like a waste of money since I have no problems with my current board.

I have come up with two options. Buy a board and if I don't like it or need it sell it used and probably lose somewhere between $100-$150. Or just sell the gift card now for about $50 less than what it's worth and just take the loss.

What would you guys do?

In your shoes. I would sell it at a slight loss. Its money in your hand and when you do want a new board you will be buying the new model that will no doubt be better and lighter than the one you could buy now to gather dust.
Of course if you are riding more and want a quiver get a board but it seems you feel you don't need one right now.

Build a quiver? Get yourself a Charlie Slasher or a Salomon Powder Snake and some bindings and get your pow on.

Or get a Signal Park Rocker Light and bindings and get your jib/buttery on.

Or sell it for the loss and spend you're money in a real shop and support the heart of the industry.

It's too bad dogfunk doesn't have much non-snowboard related outdoor gear. I could go fucking crazy with a
$700 gift card to something like REI
