Default God I love Craigslist

I keep an eye out on CL all the time mining for deals. While occasionally you can stumble across a great deal, far more often than not you stumble across some great laughs.

Here's a few from today:

"great condition", "very minor scratches on the bottom"
Burton snowboard great condition

The Ridge at Loveland is some of the best inbounds terrain in CO. Evidently it's a snowboard too?
Snow Board + Bindings

People out here think Never Summer is worth it's weight in gold, regardless of how old it may be.
Neversummer snowboard / burton bindings
Neversummer Snowboard

some fool trying to sell a mismatched "pair" of bindings
Snowboard Bindings

Binding post is the clear winner.

I love how most people have no sense of depreciation. My favorite is "I paid $500 for this". Gues what, someone paid $250 for it in the offseason. People need to realize to sell their shit it is that it is worth less than 50% what they paid for a year later. It's worse than buying a car.

Can tell the binding owner is from the midwest. Strap in the front flow in the back for easy on easy off lift access. Still funny. I see gems all the time. I love the people that want to nickle and dime me when I'm selling next years gear for 150 bucks a pop. It's next years shit ridden 5 times if that and you want to have me drop it another 50 to 75 bucks because you know someone.

exactly what i was thinking. besides the binding post the boards aren't bad for a newbie trying to score a board instead of renting. for cost of renting board you can buy a more than often better set up for same price of renting. $100 or $150 for board and binding? when your learning it doesn't matter how bad the board is. Not going to be doing crazy shit by 3rd or 4th day to warrant a badass stick

The $150 board is a throw away. It's worthless. The only use for that thing is a park bench. My first board was a $50 special and was in MUCH better shape than that POS.

In addition to asking unrealistic pricing for ancient and out dated gear, I also find it amusing when they don't list the size or model of the board.
