Well I've got the first one I ever bought. It was a K2 off of Craigslist. I quickly discovered that it was too short and just not the best quality. so I at the end of last year I bought my first ":real" setup- A Ride Decade with SPI bindings.

Over the summer I picked up two more CL boards one for $5 and one for $20.

Then I got a "backup" board for my ride- an atomic Coldsmoke (Thanks Snowolf!) That became my primary board.

Then I bought a "vintage Burton Cruzer on Ebay just for display.

I liked my Coldsmoke so much and they were on clearance so I thought I'd pick up one another one of those.

Now I've got seven.

I think that's it though...

7 seems like a lot, but it doesn't sound like you have 7 set ups to decide on every time out. I guess I'd have 5 or 6 if I didn't sell one when it got old or trade one in.

ok that makes more sense it sounds like you got most of those boards for really cheap
i have had 4 boards in my life time so i guess thats not 2 far away from 7
i sold the first one and broke the second 2 haha so i really only have 1 ridable board

To borrow from road cycling philosophy...

The correct number of snowboards to own is "n + 1", with "n" being equal to the number of snowboards you currently own.

I've got 9 and I'm still looking for more. I have 3 in heavy rotation and looking to retire one and replace it with a better rail board.

There's no sense in trading them in because they're only going to take them towards a board for full price and I don't want to give them a board and bindings and still pay $200+ towards a deck when I can just buy it online for $200 straight up cash.
