Question Question for Snowboarder experts

Someone gave me this snowboard because I told him that I have been getting interested in snowboarding. I took it to the Dick's Sporting Goods in Legacy Village and asked the guy if he could put bindings on the board for me. He acted as if I had committed blasphemy and exclaimed "No way am I putting bindings on that board for you." I asked him why and he said he would "give [me] $800 on the spot for the board." So this peaked my interest. After talking to him for awhile, he told me that this was a 2nd edition Burton board and worth a ton of money.

So, me knowing really nothing about the history of snowboards, I decided to turn to the Huddle and see if anyone can shed some light on the situation.

yeah, thats a craig kelly burton air. i could very well see someone paying more than $800 for it. i'm not sure if its the first one, but craig kelly i think was the first to have a pro model or something like that. there's something special about the board, i know that. email burton with the photo, see what they say.

That's a Burton Craig Kelly Air. (signature model) It was the one of the hottest boards in '92. No matter what it is, if someone offered me $800 for a beat up old rock board, I'd take the money and run. I have no idea what you bought, but if they coughed up the cash, I'd say you made out great.

If I remember right, there was some variation in the "cloud" pattern on the Air Series from board to board, but this is it.

1992 Burton Air

Hearing that makes me wonder if maybe I should keep my Burton Asym Air and PJ in the rafters instead of turning them into a picnic table bench. ...And to think I sold my '90/'91 Air 6 for a couple hundred bucks back in the day...

I don't know anything about the 5150 but I'll tell you that collectors are out there. I've met plenty of them.

PJ Asym...awesome

anything over $200 is wonderful for a relic snowboard. I suggest buying other time capsule worthy stuff for the same reason - an investment. We have plenty of the Grenade Unbreakable jacket and pants. Those bones will be classic in ten years at some retro party!

Back in 2000, people were buying up stuff for the millennium edition.

Can anyone comment on my "new" board please? If you need any kind of information, I can do my best to help supply you with the information. I just started snowboarding this season. I've only been three times.

Thanks
