Smile Help identify my board

New to this forum, in fact I joined the forum just for this purpose, to see if someone can help me identify what model/year my board is. The manufacture is Forum Snowboards (obvious) but I am looking more for the model and year it was made. It would be even more awesome if someone had the specs for the board.

I bought this board about 5 years ago in a Long Beach Convention show, back then I got this board, Burton Custom Bindings, and Burton Boots for $300. I have been riding this board ever since, and for the most part it rides very well...altho I guess I wouldn't know the difference. haha.

Anyways, I'm debating getting a new board, and I figure if I knew what my old board was, then it would be easier to compare what I would want to get new.




I'll try to dig up more pictures of just the board...

Any help would be great!

sorry its kinda hard to see on the pictures. On the tail it only says "FORUM Snowboards", in the middle of the board it says "DS158.5cm DIRECTIONAL Made in Austria" That's the only markings I see on the board. Thanks for your help!

Yea I tried googling it up, but I can't see to find much information on past seasons boards. What happens to all the old boards that don't get sold...do companies destroy them? And it doesn't seem like manufactures keep any online archives of previous season's catalogues. What up with that!

Thanks for all your efforts. Hehe will my board idenitity always remain a mystery?

Its a low end cap constructed board all you need to know is get away from cap and get something with sidewall.
