Yeah the "anything" has me wondering. that kw raygun has really good reviews on top of what was mentioned here. That Burton balance is $50. I'd check it out better before buying it. There are others on Craig's not too far from me. Ill prob take mine to ride the next time or two I go and try out a couple Lamar of a friend and my brother. If mine failed drastically they always rent!
I just don't want to spend 200 or so on my stuff, if i can get by without suffering too much,when ill be spending some coin on kids stuff possibly. Plus dirtbike season is coming.

|Riley212||Yea i would venture to say that board is a gonner. You should be looking ofr something slightly newer, anything really. Check the for sale forum on this site, i saw a K2 raygun for $175 shipped, that would be worth getting. theres lots of stuff for sale. Cleveland craigslist looked pretty empty.|

|Greener||I found my current board. It is a 2002 Burton LTr 153. For the record.|

Ah, ok, that makes sense then ( your back story). I hope you enjoy whatever you find! The k2 raygun is a fun board. You never know, you might find a good used board in Utah as well. Not sure how the selection is in Ohio. Either way, have fun!

|Greener||I borrowed my little cousins pink board. Nice setup though. Told.my boy to give it a shot. He didn't even Cate about the pink. Rode a 30 ish degree hill to the bottom about 100feet. Long enough to get a feel before he stopped but short enough to run back up. He loved it and stays up on his own. It was awesome. Now the old.man needs to be able to stay ahead of him.|

yes the right board can make a difference but will never replace rider skill, they just make it easier to do what you want to do, which in your case is get better.
please read some of the stickies (red topics) at the top of this subforum page for better info on new board styles, specifically the "rocker, camber, and everything in between" thread.

|Greener||How can you tell its age? What would you want a hard file for also? Ill check into some ofnthe models I found. I've read that the right board can make a big difference. So we will see if I try some how they help or hurt.|
