Default Selling price for my board?

I've spent a total of 10 days on a 2011 Burton Love. Bought it for $600, and I want to sell it because it's not really the right size for my style. It's a 157W.

It's basically got no scratches on it, the wax helped out, and theres only a few tiny knicks on the edges. What would be an appropriate price to sell it?

you're not gonna really like this but i'd say $250 w/o bindings, tops.

Pardon my ignorance, but why would that be?

It's one of those, you may get more from someone who really wants one, but unlikely, people have some real crazy expectations like the one on Ebay for $2000 brand new.

Personally, it is a board with some graphics which i don't particularly care for, i would give you $100 tops, as a 2nd hand board...

Aaaahhhhh. I forgot about how fast stuff deprecates. Especially since snowboard companies put out new stuff every year. Plus I just looked up the board on google and it's just camber, triax, and the channel in a soft park board. And the graphics may deter some people.

EDIT: Oh geez! Sorry op, everyone (including me) seems to be ripping on your board!

Nobody is really ripping the board, just not to everyones taste, and to be fair, it is something that is aimed at people that do not know better, a great marketing tool used by Burton to extract extra money for something that is not worth so much, most companies do it, so unless you are a collector, or particularly like this board, it has no interest to 99% of people who snowboard...

And to be fair, i actually know someone who thought it was an investment and bought 2 of them...!!! 1 to ride and one to sell later, he is in the same situation... Sitting with boards worth less than he paid...

I, as do most people buy a board to ride and abuse... Not because of some fancy graphics...

And this board while it may sell for more, is unlikely too, that is just how it is, my advice would be to think of a number, and stick it on ebay for that price, if you get lucky you will sell it for more, certainly more than you are likely to get on here...

ehh nobody is ripping OP, its just that OP bought the wrong board at the wrong time....personally would not pay a dime for it and doubt even taking it for free...infact a perfectly good barely used board with bindings showed up at my house and just waiting for some gal that wants an intermediate board and its hers.

Same here. I wouldn't take the board for free.....

I get rid of year old boards for 150-250 with bindings.....
