So I picked up a 2nd hand 2008 Burton King 167 for 50 euro.
It's my first board and I was wondering if anyone here rode it and how it was/felt/whatever. I can find some generic info online but no real rider review. Anyone actually owned/still riding one?

Combined with Union Contact Pros and Northwave Freedom SL boots.
Got the 167 cuz im 6.4" and 230lbs with size 11.5 boots, advanced beginner level.

It's a directional twin actually as u can see in the link to the specs I made.
Still wondering if anyone on the forum rode/rides this board.

2008 is now considered "back in the day?" Goddamn, I must be getting old.
Haha yeah ok, let me elaborate. Im 37 myself so 2008 isnt that long ago.
But it seems to me everyone here is on brand new or max a year old boards.
I am from Holland, have no mountains and have to drive 4 hrs for a kiddie slope or 12 hrs to the Alps (Austria/Switzerland or France) Most of the gear here gets maybe a week a year on it. My 2nd hand board is 4 years old and has maybe 18 days on it. As for asking who rode/ride a Burton King, it seemed to be that riding a 4 yr old board is equivalent to riding Pamela Anderson, great in the day but antique now :D
