My first ever ride was on a Head. Don't know what kind, but it had pink all over it. Isn't anything else just a formality?

The first board I ever owned and rode was a 80 something burton air. I still have its pretty ragged now. A bunch of gouges the heel side edge is ripping out in the back....

Burton Punch. Little board for a little gaffer.

first time I rented

K2 board of some type
Airwalk Boots
K2 bindings

The next year

K2 board with step in bindings with airwalk boots

I loved the airwalk boots

Last time I was in park city I was rented Head everything. It all sucked. Bad bindings(impossible to get open when cold) and the boots had the worst heel lift. So I bought my own stuff

M3 Dischord 160
Burton Customs w/ capstrap

First ride was on a Blacksnow with duck boots at the local sledding hill.
First owned was an 89/90 or 90/91 Burton Air 5. Black and blue topsheet with a yellow "AIR" on the tail.
Had those crappy three-strap Burton Flex bindings. Mounted at a ridiculous angle and stance width.
Burton Comp boots. Stiff and too high up the calf.
Looking back wish I went with the Freestyle boot and two-strap binding.
Kids are lucky now-a-days.
If I started with the set-up I have now it would have been much easier and more comfortable to learn.

K2 JuJu - I think it was called. I rode that board for about three years after my son rode it a season or two.

Thats the exact one I had haha, I had a blast on that thing, I had to have been 8 years old or something like that.
The first REAL board I rode was around the same era (my friends board) a late 80's Burton Craig Kelly Air lol. Definitely only made to go one direction. The new style twin tipped boards starting coming out VERY shortly after my friend got his board so he traced the shape of a Joyride onto the top and cut it out with a jigsaw lol. That board didn't live long after that. The first board that made me start riding a LOT was just a few years ago, a Burton Bullet 164 in 24" or so of the pow.

1st board I got last year..haha...

Option Icon 154, I'm loving it... I think its a bit stiff for the park, but its a freestyle board thats good for n00bs like me... I mostly did freeride last season, hoping to being in the parks this year...can't wait!
