Default What was the first...

What was the first snowboard you ever owned or road? Maybe it was the same board and I'm talking about any brand... could be a sears special.

The first board I ever road was an '88 Mystery Air (Craig Kelly) that some guy showed up at our local toboggan hill with. Then until the next year when me and some friend got our Black Snow Ledgends (sears special) in '89. We were forced to take the trucks of our skateboards and bolt straps to slide our feet in and ride them down the hills... that was quite an adventure lol
Then I got my first "real" snowboard the '92-'93 season... a Ride twin with the swiss cheese looking bindings(the ones that came in green, gold, or purple)

I wish I kept my Ride board... sold it to a friend who ended up selling it the next season.

The first board I ever rode was a Burton Custom In 2005. Of course, I caught a front edge and bled all over the snow, but I still had a ton of fun.

mine was a Wild Duck relic (i fink it was called)

154 and heavy as hell; but a durable solid sandwich that was more than enuff to see me thru my 'growing pains' and left me wanting more powder days! for the rest of my life!

3 years ago a friend of the family asked me if i wanted to try snowboarding cos i was so into skating [i had been going about 4 years by that time]

i said sure why not and he lent me his brothers rossignol [cos he was a skiier, his bro a boarder] which had about half the width of my foot hahaha.

i kinda took the first chairlift i saw when i got up there, then i worked out how to strap in and just thru myself down the slope without any problems except for a couple falls everytime i tried to turn heelside and my feet wud dig into the snow from so much overhang!

first board i ever rode was a kemper. it was a rental from Doe Mtn about 11 or 12 years ago. i ended up working at that mtn a few years later and totally snagged one of those babies. dont even know where it is now.

the first board i ever owned was a private label with slim bindings. it was too big, way heavy and stiffer than belief. it was basically like riding a 2x4 down the mountain but i was so stoked i had my own gear.

I rode the Mystery Air when it first came out. My first board was a Sims Blade 1610(?). With the pointy nose and way set back stance. Sorels were the state of the art snowboard boot back then. We would take out the liners and swap them with ski boot liners to stiffen them up a bit. They still sucked.
