Buy it, don't ride it.
Put it on Ebay, sell it & buy yourself a much better board
Or maybe you can find someone who will trade you a newer deck for it?
Don't think it can happen
I'm in Vancouver Canada, I had a K2 Shawn Farmer deck(not quite as old as that one) on craigslist for $50
Someone that lives in Colorado got a hold of me. He bought & traded me a 2011 Never Summer deck, paid to ship it to Vancouver, then he paid to have mine shipped to him.
Sounds a little like bull shit eh?
Turns out. The BurtonAvenger actually knows the guy who bought it.
It ain't bull shit.
Actually BA, I've been trying to get a hold of Gary. Do you see him, or are you able to relay a message to him?
If so can you get him to email me.
I'm pretty sure I have his number somewhere buried in a thousand emails, but it'll take forever to find it.

|BurtonAvenger||That's like asking yourself if you want to drive a 96 Subaru Outback or a 2006. Obviously the 2006 is going to be better.|

|Riley212||if you have no other options it is a snowboard and will slide down the hill. if you have newer options go for those, this is a 20 year old antique.|

Your thoughts about a 1995 Burton Air...
Is the board design just too dated to be useful for a beginner? I notice that the rear is not fully radiused...it's squared off. I can get one in great shape for $60 with bindings, but that's $60 wasted if a newer board (even a cheapie) is miles ahead of the 1995 in terms of design and rideability...thanks. Attached is a photo of the model I'm considering.
