Haha, wow. I did the same exact thing. On a Burton (not sure what model.. its whatever is in my avatar) in 2005, on the first run of the last day at Heavenly caught my front edge and had to make it to the bottom with my face covered in blood. People freaked.

My first board ever is in the mail right now. Atomic Hatchet.

My first board was a 1987 151 Barfoot Freestyle. I found a picture of one on the net but mine was yellow and I think this one is an 85 or 86. I bought mine from the original "Snoboard Shop" in Kensington in Calgary which I believe was the first actual snowboard shop in Canada. I bought it from Ken Achenbach who owned the shop with his brother Dave and I believe Ken was sponsored by Barfoot at the time. Ken and Dave were a couple of the true pioneers of snowboarding in the Calgary and Banff area and in Canada period. I believe Ken is now the owner and director of the Camp of Champions and is in the Snowboard Hall of Fame.

The first board I can remember was a Burton Chopper that I rented when I was in grade 5 so I guess that was '98. But the first board I owned was a Burton Custom that I still got but it's much to small now.
