Default anyone ever tried one of these

I might be trading an old Craig Kelley deck for this bad muther fucker?

just curious iif anyone has ever ridden one?

It might be a tad big for me & Argo

Doing a little research, I found this.

HaHa, now I must have it.

I've watched this vid about 20 times, it makes my eyes water.

Dude is covering some serious ground, like football fields in seconds.

What are you talkin' about I go that fast all the time

Nothing unique or inherently valuable about that board?

Have you seen one in person? I haven't.

Hmmm.... Nothing unique you say? It doesn't really look like your standard twin shape 155 to me

It's fuckin' 6 & a 1/2 feet tall, shaped like a rocket, that's completely black with a white cross that says "Undertaker" underneath of it.

They don't come much more unique

It looks fuckin' bad ass, there's no denying it.


But I've had 2 of these CK's before & I know where 2 or 3 are locally , & I have 2 much nicer CK's.
One you can still see where the sticker was on the base, it's pristine.

I've never seen an Undertaker for sale ever. Not that I look, but still.

I paid $100 bucks for the CK & there is no fuckin' way I'm gonna find this exact board pictured for $100 bucks, that just ain't gonna happen.

I think it's a great deal.

Thanks for convincing me, I'm on it.

my first ever snowboard was a swallow-tail (Burton Elite). There were cracks that developed from the point where the 2 tails come together that radiated out into the main part of the board. It seems easy to break those narrow tails off if you land hard on one of them.. but this is just speculation on my part. Overall, I remain skeptical of them. YMMV

Oh, I'll be the first to admit, practical it is not.

I can't see myself ridin' it more than a handful of times, if that.

Pretty sure I won't be doing very many jumps to land wrong?

Who cares is the only statement that comes to mind.

I didn't ask if anyone cared, but you answered your own question.

Shucks, thanks buddy.

I just wanted to know if anyone had tried one?

I take it you have not?

I've seen one in person, had the chance to ride it. Opted not to because it's fucking pointless. Which poses the same question who cares?
