How much is it worth?

I recently "won" a board after I donated to a charity for injured athletes. It's a signal snowboard with Rockstar energy written all over it. When I picked it up the guy told me it is a five hundred dollar board. I thought signal boards were from 250- 400 dollars.

I attached some pics to this message.

This board is brand new, never been used. Will someone give me some kind of idea of what I should sell it for?

Thanks, Thomas Smith

Looks pretty good but those promo boards are rarely quality. I would say its worth $250-$300 but someone could buy a new retail board on sale for the same price. If you got rid of it at $150 or $200 you might get someone to grab it and they wont be able to get mad when they realize its not the best. GL

Hey, I live in the Southeast. We ski on some small hills 1 to 2 times a year at best. The snow is mostly man-made. My son snowboards, and I might let him keep it, but then again he might use it one to two times a year. I would really rather someone have it who will use it.

I looked at other "rockstar" promo boards on ebay. They are not the same. I guess I should just take it and let smomeone look at it to be sure.

It would be more worth it for you to get on it and try snowboarding.

I would put it on eBay with a reserve of $250. You will likely get 450-500

This may be but you will be taking advantage of someone that doesn't know better. Most new gear is 30%-40% off at shops now so they can buy a much better board.

They aren't buying it for the board.....

Also, a good rider can ride pretty much anything you strap on their feet. My 12 y/o son has a cheap ass marvel comics wolverine board that he loves to take out and throw methods left and right with because the bottom graphics look cool, that would be the same for this rockstar board...even though he has higher end Rome, ride, nitro and forum boards.... He is keeps in touch with ChasG since he summer camps with him in Mt Hood and would love for me to buy him a rockstar board so he could method this thing all over but I've never found one anywhere near his size....
