|earl_je||I thought you were asking for ideas on what to do with an ancient board.. I would've suggested turning it into a patio bench.|

Straight tail tips generally denote directional, free-ride usage. So technically, it wasn't built for freestyle. Doesn't necessarily mean you can't do park with it. You'll just have a harder time jibbing with it.
There really is no functionality for a straight tip. The upcoming 2011 Burton Ration even gives you the option to cut your own tip and tail shape.
Now, if you have a swallow tail snowboard, that is a different story. The upside down V-Cut in swallow tips give you better control for turns in powder.

|Cr0_Reps_Smit||although you never really know how shitty your board is until you jump on a new board and you're like DAMN, why was i riding that pos hah.|

Hehe that's exactly my point Leo i don't want to go and get a new board hence the fact i wanna know more about this one.
I know it may seem trivial but i like to understand the history of things i use, i also sent a message to Nidecker, just waiting for a reply.
Maybe i can put any info i get back up here in case anyone else has a similar board.
A friend said the cut part at the back means its just for slope and not park etc, is this right?

If it performs well enough for your needs, then all of the other information is just trivial. Why upgrade to a brand new board if you don't feel the need to?
You could just buy a new board to start a quiver and still ride your old one.

I have used it a few times an it seems ok to me, as a noob though that is
I was just after basic info if anyone knew, like price when it came out, specs if poss, what its made from an such, whether it was a from a line of boards or a 1 off, whether it was deemed as a good board or just a piece of junk, i would like to know about it rather than just grab the latest season board an pose like most people, ( thanx for your comment Lstarrasl ).
