^^^ LOL, I think this is actually a good thread, so many people say "oh this board FEELS so light" but I don't come here to talk about my feelings! lol

I weighed all my gear last year. Here's what I found...

Old board - 1995 Kemper Freestyle 153 w/early 2000's Kemper bindings - 11.0 pounds

New board - 2011 Burton T7 159 w/ 2010 Burton C60 EST sz/Lg bindings - 11.0 pounds

GFs board - 2010 K2 Luna 149 w/2010 K2 Bliss sz/Md bindings - 9.4 pounds

To everybody that thinks we rode on 20 pounds 1" thick planks of wood in the 90's... WRONG!!!

Updated my previous post: and here's a boot comparison.

2010 Burton Serows - 5.2 lb (size 9)
1998 Vans Shaun Palmers - 5.2 lb (size 10)
2011 Burton Sapphire - 4.2 lb (girlfriends size 8)

So the funny thing is that right down to the tenth of a pound, my old setup including boots weighed the same as my new setup. The new setup was 15 year newer top of the line shit. Big difference is the new board was 7.5 cm longer, 1 cm wider at the waist, 2 cm wider at the tip and tail, etc.

I always thought that if someone said that the equipment was to heavy, that person really needs to find a gym.
