2011 Never Summer Lotus $100

Don't know how to edit the title so I'm startin' a new thread sorry.

Droppin' the price to $100 bucks, that's a retardedly wicked deal, so would someone please gobble it up, so I can get the board I'm after.

Cool board. I was thinking about surprising my wife with it, but 157 is just way too big.

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.

how soft is the board compared to men's 157? can a guy actually ride this? would it feel like a park, all mountain or freeriding board from guys perspective?

Much much softer. Can almost bend it by just looking at it.
