Default Use of old boards

I have tons of old boards, I keep them around for friends who don't ride much and want to go/learn or I use them as "wall art" in the loft above garage, the man cave.

Mine are typically thrashed unless I don't like them much. I use the others for early/late season and riding in the very poor snow conditions on the hill behind the house, I always set up some rails and shit at the bottom of it.
Haha

There are 25 different boards in the front room of my house, ranging from "old" collectibles (Unincs, Domafari, Volcom, etc) to trashed boards that I've used in the past and don't ride anymore to my actual board quiver that I ride on a daily/seasonal basis.

Out of all those boards, I'll actually only ride about 5-6 of them in a year, and only 2-3 of them on a consistent basis.

3. First board, haven't ridden in ages but might see snow again next season hence the 3rd referenced above: Apocalypse Cap 5 (super stiff camber)

4. A promo Mountain Dew board someone gave me years ago. It's never seen bindings or snow. It's a 155 camber with cap construction.

5. and 6. Some completely thrashed - like someone ran them over with a vehicle thrashed - decks I thought I could repurpose into a snowboard bench. Also "gifted" to me. I think one is a K2 and the other a Ride? Clearly I've not gotten to the bench project yet.
thats originally why i save my boards too. 8 years and many, many boards later, still no bench.

Ahaha - bench building party at my house then!

Those two boards have been "holding up" the wall in my garage for too long.

I'd join, if it wouldn't be a very long journey stable is full of husbands boards, beginning with an air kelly, waiting to be transformed into benches, knowing he'll never do (he's all thumbs)

It would be fun! You'd have to bring your breeches, boots, and helmet too!

Ah, I'm a bit relieved to know I'm not the only one with boards yet to be benches. Sounds like with your husband's years of riding you'd have quite a number of benches! A friend's old Air Kelly is the first board I ever rode. I remember it well. Mostly from the pain of those first days out. Ha.
