I've sent a few emails to craigslist ads, but I'm East coast where I've yet to see an Arbor on craigslist anywhere in New England, so I have to hope that one of the West coast guys I email doesn't assume I'm a pirate and is willing to ship.

Yep. I saw an Element at a REI garage sale a couple years ago that was utterly fucking destroyed. It looked like it had been ridden through a gravel quarry. I couldn't believe they were actually trying to sell it.

even worse than them trying to sell it, think about the dirtbag that brought it back to return it after riding it into the ground.... he probably got a full refund...


i used to be that dirtbag....

The REI right near Sunnyvale CA,I heard had a limit of the numbers of times people would return snowboards...dirtbags would use it as a demo. i have seen quite a few Jeremy Jones flagships there for sale.
