Buying 2 Boards for the Lady and Myself: 1)Ride Yukon 2)Palmer HoneyCircle Opinions?
Hey guys, new to the forums from Florida! I grew up on the mountains up in New England but moved south to Florida about 10 years ago. I try to get on a mountain once every year or two. My girl and I are moving out to Central California in a few weeks and can't wait to spend our winters on the slopes. Found a few boards down here in FL that are in good shape, these people down here buy boards for their once a year trip to Colorado and then they sit in storage, so figured I'd jump on them for the price. Here are the two boards:
1) 2005 Palmer Honeycircle, Ride Bindings, Solomon Boots 8.5's, Size: 152 Good Shape, used about 10 days of boarding, few scratches and dings but nothing major...Asking $200
2) 2008 Ride Yukon, Ride Bindings, Size: 164 Very good shape, ridden only a few times, very few scratches...Asking $100
My question for you guys is are these decent boards? And how are the prices?
I'm unfamiliar with the brands, from what I've been able to find online, they are pretty decent boards, the Ride Yukon board seems to be in the right price range but I don't plan on paying the guy with the Palmer board any more than $120-$140 for that set-up. The sizes are correct for the both of us, we are just looking for boards to free ride with, I'm an intermediate and she is beginner/intermediate.
Thanks for your help!
