Ya, it's a chicks board & it's a 157.
Originally I had a Shawn Farmer 157 on Craigslist for $50. Some dude got a hold of me from Colorado & asked if could hold it for a couple months until Christmas, he was going to be up here & he'd give me $100.
I asked him if he could find a Never Summer with R&C for the $100 he was going to give me. To buy it & I'd trade him for the Farmer. But he couldn't find one for $100, the only one he could find was the Lotus for $250.
Buddy spent $250 buying the Lotus, then covered the cost of shipping it from Colorado to Vancouver($90). He then covered the cost of shipping the Farmer from Vancouver to Colorado($120).
So ya, I ended up with a chicks board. But it was way too good of a deal for me to not accept.
That was incredibly nice of this guy to do. I was a little blown away.
This whole transaction took almost 6 months, from the 1st email too the board getting here. His plans to come up here for Christmas fell through & I thought the deal was going to fall through as well.
@ the time this was all going down, I didn't even have power. My mom had just passed away & I was pretty much living day to day & didn't have a penny.
When the board got here, I emailed him & told him that when my moms house sold, he would be getting a phone call, I told him I would pay for the majority of the cost of a trip Heli boarding.
I said it will probably be without notice so have some gear packed.
My word is as good as gold, so @ some point this year. I'll be going Heli boarding for the first time.
If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.
Then I am so close to immortality
