just what i've always wanted! can you come up in price a little bit? since it's such a rare, free promo board, i feel that it would be unfair to only give you $300

I was waiting for these replies.

Everyone of his posts are "I have a board F/S" at least he has them in the right section

Yeeesh, tough crowd! Truth be told I am more active on "other" forums and I try to better my odds by posting on multiple sites. If this is against the rules then by all means have a mod delete my posting.

And sorry boys but I was lucky enough to win a raffle for this board. Hate me for it why don't ya!

Bottom line is this: I'm a trustworthy seller utilizing the resources presented by this website to try and better my odds at a sale. Look at it as a promo board if you want, but this is a Skate Banana in a unique package. People love that board, and some people (obviously not me) love Rockstar energy drink too.

So yea... troll on

Not sure my count is right and I really don't care if you sell your goods here or not. Your in the right community, right thread, and hopefully someone can negotiate to get a board they can afford.

21 boards you've listed though does seem suspicious at least to me. How are you getting all these new boards, demo boards, and barely used boards to sell? Stealing them from a shop? How many times can the same guy keep winning promo boards? Again sounds suspicious

Good luck on the sales, and as stated seems pricey but everything is negotiable

Side Note: need some girly looking park bindings for my daughter, you got any of those to sell then I'm a believer....

You should increase the price to around $2000. After all, rockstar should pay the owner for all the advertising. It's a win-win situation. You get $2000, and the buyer ends up "paying" only about $152.47 after all the money he gets from rockstar

Wow... and now I'm being accused of being a thief.

I buy and sell shit to support my hobbies. Did the same thing with paintball and was never treated by the community like this. I get my gear through a variety of sources, sometimes by watching craigslist and ebay closely and swooping up the good deals when they come along. I also have a lot of lazy friends in the industry that are unmotivated to sell their own gear. I have found a mutually beneficial situation where I can help them move their used and un-used gear in exchange for a percentage of the sale.

And if I'm not mistaken I've only listed 2 or 3 promo boards. Again, I'm not lazy and I'm willing to take the time to enter raffles and shit like that. I've won 2 boards and some outerwear from another forum.

Really trying to keep it cool when I'm being called a thief by people who don't even know me. If you are curious just ask, no need to be an asshat about it.

1st I'm sorry !!!! didn't mean to come off as implying you stole them. It does seem weird to me to have so many boards to sell. I do see someone with a ton of connections being able to do this. So as stated I retract the implication!
Nearly all your posts have to do with sales and not the general community we have here so that sometimes, many times leads to these types of replies

I think one reason people can be a little salty, particularly for a promo board, is because we've had quite a few guys in here that didn't know their base from their topsheet insisting on getting MSRP for the board they got for free. That said, you can get skate bananas pretty cheap in excellent condition, so you're asking about $100 for the Rockstar labeling. It might be worth it for somebody... Good luck man.

It's all good. It just gets tiring having to respond to all the negativity instead of just accomplishing my goal of simply moving a little gear. My love for this sport runs deep and I'm in the position I am in now because of the connections I've formed so it does sting a bit to have someone come at me like that, and I understand that it wasn't exactly your intent.

Understandable about the community deal. I don't want it to come off as I'm trying to take advantage of the members or something like that, understand that I too am a shredder and this is literally what my life revolves around. I just prefer to spend my online time watching videos these days instead of posting ;-)

I do feel that I have proved to be a valuable resource to the community members here, often times offering gear at well below market value. This time I've got a board that is highly sought after in the most popular size and in a colorway that is not available to the general public... so yea I'm looking to get a good price for it. That being said the price is not set in stone, but I'm not going to sell a brand new skate banana for $100.

Anyways, hope we can carry on smoothly from here. Anyone has any questions feel free to post away or PM me.
