Heard of this snowboard?
 
Im so driven to find our more on the manufacture of this board that I became a member just to ask. I recently found an old snowboard in my grandparents shed. It looks like a good beginners board for my little sister. I tried to find info on the manufacture but had no luck. For being an older board it has pretty good flex. The main reason I want to find more info on the manufacture is I want to know if this would make a good beginners board or if I need to put this thing in a glass case. Now onto the board.
The label on the bottom of the board says No Cry Baby. This could be with or without spaces. The top of the board is flat black with no markings besides an old foam Dakine stomp pad.

Has anyone here ever heard of this company or model of board? Before you ask yes I have googled this with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Im only gonna bump this once. Just to make sure everyone gets a look at this. If it doesn't live this time Ill just call of the search.

Not a good beginner's board most likely. Probably stiff with a hell of a lot of camber. Better off finding something more recent on craigslist. The only thing "good" about it is that it is free, so you won't lose any cash if your sister decides that she doesn't like snowboarding. Honestly though, fighting to learn on that board may discourage her.

I don't recognize the graphic, but I doubt it's a collector's item either. Unless you have some attachment to this board, I would consider it junk. Turn it in to a bench or something.

I was kind of thinking this might be the case. Shes been once already and is comfortable sliding done the mountain on her heels. This weekend will be a test run on it. Like you said theirs no money into it so if she likes it bonus. If not, nothings lost except a tiny bit of wax and sharpening stone.
