Default How old is this board?

I just picked up a board with bindings off craigslist for free.

This is the model, not the one I picked up.
Used Sims 50 Access LE Snowboard Blue 58" x 11" | eBay

The one I got doesn't look like it has ever been used.
It's got to be older than 10 years, no?.

I also got this pair of Burton Mission bindings for $10 bucks.
Burton Mission Binding, 2008 - CrazySnowBoarder Review

The forward lean adjusters are gone.

All in all, not a bad day.

Probably mid to late 90's. Most likely heavy and by now dead. Make some furniture.

Fuck that, I ain't makin' furniture out of it.
If anything it will be turned into a swallowtail or Rocker-ized.
Or possibly both.

For one, I gotta try it.
I try every board once, just for shits & giggles.

That's not the board, but it is the same model. The one I picked up doesn't have a scratch on it. I don't have it here, but when I do I'll take some pics.

What do you mean by dead?

If a board is brand new, then sits in a closet for 15 years, do you think it still looses it's life, its pop?

Yeah it will lose its life sitting. They base is likely beyond dry and when a board comes out of a press everything is basically under tension. So after 15 years even just sitting everything in the board has settled.

I have 2 boards that are pre 4x4 hole pattern, I'm not sure how old they are, but really old.

Would/could a board lose its life but still have camber?

Both have lots of camber left in them. One I've given a swallowtail & the other I've managed to give the nose some Rocker.

I bought a Rad-Air Tanker a while ago, that appears to have gone from a cambered board to a full rocker, it has a continuous smooth curve. No kinks. So I can see how riding it could kill it over time.

It didn't look like the base was dried out. But that doesn't mean it's not.
Would a base grind scrape the layer of dryness off or does it go all the way through the base?

Go ahead and cut a cap constructed board and see what happens. It's furniture.
