Default Old Boards?

So who here uses an old board?

I use a 1999 Burton Rippey, which I bought second hand about 10 years ago. Just had the edges sharpened and she's still going strong

I just upgraded my bindings and boots to Salomon Calibers and Salomon Synapses and it just feels like a new board (coming from Burton Step-in boots and bindings)

So tell me your thoughts on older boards. Do they still make them like they used to? Because frankly, my '99 Rippey is bombproof

most old boards were heavy and stiff, new boards have a more fine tuned flex and geometry. my splits are both from '01. i've got a ride board from the early 90's and its really fun to ride. Some say that the epoxy and glass will break down but thats is from use not age. I've ridden some libs from the late 90's that still have tons of POP.

I was riding a board from '95 until about 2010. That said getting my new board back then opened my eyes.

Rode with a buddy of mine at Whistler the other day, he was on a 10 year old Burton Custom that sees about 5 days of use each year. He was really killin it!

Timmytard sometimes rides a Palmer Platinum from around 2000...
