Default sell or keep my old board?

I had been riding a board i got from a buddy a few years ago. It was a Lamar Diablo 151. It has Lamar bindings on it and I have some size 11 boots for it as well. I bought my 09 RC a while back and put my old Lamar bindings on my board to ride and they worked fine, but since then I have purchased new burton boots (these actually fit seeing how I am a size 12), and new GNU Fastec bindings. Now I have 2 complete boards and KNOW i will most likely only be riding the GNU.. i have no desire to jump back on the 151 mainly because it is WAY too short for me. My GNU is 157.5 and fits me great.

My question is this.. should i just sell the Lamar? Is it worth anything to sell as a full setup or should I just keep it because it really isnt worth getting rid of?

What do you guys think?

and I'll try and get a few pics of the Lamar later today, gotta take my little one to a bday party first.

keep it if you have the room. Use it for urban or early season riding. Treat the board like shit in front of your friends and they'll think you are cool.

Keep it and use it as above or let friends ride it to get them into the sport.

Sometimes it sucks trying to sell old equipment. You value it a lot more than someone else will and chances are that will reflect in the price you actually get rid of it for. If you're not going to ever use it again, just try to get $125 or so for it, then if they offer $100/75, well that's a hundred more than you had yesterday. Just don't be one of those people that try to sell a 4 year old board that has never been waxed or edged for $250 because when you bought it was worth $500 new. I know you didn't specify exact age, board quality, etc, but that was just an example.

Keep it. U can always use it as a trash board and you probably wouldn't get much money for it anyways.

good opinions guys.. i am pretty much on the same page as yall.. I had thought for a while that I was def gonna get rid of it and try and get between 100/125 for it. That would be more than a fair price IMHO. It is about 4 years onld and does need a wax job. The edges are surprisingly good on it and there are no serious chips on the edges either. I am gonna put a good wax job and really let it doak into the base and see if I cant rejuvinate it a little more.

I am thinking of starting on the terrain park this time out but mild stuff.. i think the beginning of next season I am gonna start attempting to push myself at the terrain park, this board would be a great thing to have when doing so.

thanks again for the input, if someone comes up and wants to buy it for a good price they can have it, but until then I think i'll just sit on it.

I think its wishful thinking to think you will get 100 bucks for a 4 year old Lamar board with Lamar bindings and some oversize boots.
Size 11 boots on a 151? Thats just craziness since its most likely not a wide board.
Keep it for a rock board as others stated, or give it to a friend who it would fit(135ish lbs) and get them up on the mountain with you.

Keep it so Shannon can ride it. That way I won't have to pay for her to rent a board.

I'd say keep it - you really won't get much for it. It'll be fun to keep around as a goofing around / early season / loaner board for friends.
