Help Identify this board

I purchased this board roughly 14 yrs ago, it was the first snowboard I purchased. I bought it from a guy and I don't know how long he had it for before he sold it to me. Ive been curious about it for awhile but in my search, can't seem to find anything on this board. All I know is that its an early World Industries snowboard. I would really like to sell this board,I held on to it for a very long time because I enjoy it, and it is unique. I don't even know if this one is even worth selling.

I can't think of anyone who would pay a dime for that thing. It doesn't have anywhere near the tech that the shittiest board produced today has.

Its an old snowboard its pretty much worthless to really use, some people find worth in items for collection. I asked a question you don't have to be an ass about it. I don't expect someone to buy it for doing any hardcore snowboarding. on top of being out of date by over 15 yrs, its very small. Do people even collect snowboards? I don't know. That is why i am asking. Also Just for the sake of knowing for myself I am curious to know if anyone can tell me anything about this board.

Don't sell your first board, no matter how shitty someone says it is.

World industries never ran the skateboarding world. they catered to new skateboarders and had really shitty boards. Skateboarders were skating black label, element, flip, girl, habitat, etc...While posers (aka gapers in snowboarding) were riding world industries.

This.

Personally I would clean it up the best I could and hang it on a wall as art.

BAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH How old are you? You couldn't be anymore wrong. Half those companies weren't around. Powell Peralta ran skateboarding, then World Industries changed skateboarding forever.

Watch the documentry The Man Who Souled The World, then get back to me.

Dude ... World Industries invented the modern skateboard deck shape. They were huge back in the early 90's. Most of those brands you mentioned owe World Industries for their success. Mike Ternarsky formed Plan B and did so with a distribution and production agreement paid for by World Industries. Plan B died almost immediately after parting from its World Industries contract in the late 90's and didn't even come back until like 8 years ago when Danny Way brought it back. Girl was started by former World Industries team member Rick Howard. World Industries made skating what it was in the 90's. WI and Blind RAN skateboarding in the 90's. You couldn't even open a CCS mag without seeing WI skate and snowboard plastered on every page and this was before CCS and WI were owned under Kubic as their parent.

Saying WI never ran skateboarding is like saying Independent didn't do anything for skateboarding.
