My First Board (crica 1987)

So I was just surfing the Internets, and I came across a few pics of my first board (well, not my actual first board, but one like it). I think I was 11 or 12 when I first got one of these. I later traded it for a BB gun and two Misfits albums on cassette (I had a Gnu by that point). I don't even remeber what year this thing was...somewhere between '86 - '88??

Re present day worth, no idea. Just depends how much some wingnut is willing to pay for one.

I know, right? But like skateboards, somethings pre-date symmetry. I would like to try riding one of these now to see what if handles like, though. I'm sure that would be a serious trip.

They did. But it memory serves correct, the board was SUPER soft/flexable. I remeber doing nose-rides (going backwards) on that thing really, really easy compared to the Gnu I had for my second board (stolen at Waterville, NH after 2 weeks). I've been trying to dig up a pic of that board on the net, but can't find one anywhere. Some things are best left in the shadows of memory.

I had friends with similar boards and I had a Barfoot. I remember when we first started snowboarding at Sunshine village in Banff we had to be certified to ride there. You had to show them that you had metal edges on your board, that you could turn both directions, and that you could stop. That was in 1988.

Oh Shit. Wow. I TOTALLY forgot that we had to do that that, too. You could do it by taking a lesson, or having one of the instructors watch you ride for 20 min. The lesson was cheaper. Hah!
