Spent 10 minutes on google and found nothing. Hard to google "assassin" on not get a bunch of pics of the current Salomon model.

The thing about old equipment like this is, who's to say this was top quality during it's time? Could have been cheap shit back then so it's definitely cheap shit now. I see this with old wakeboard equipment too. Some nut trying to sell Big five bindings from 2003 for $50.... get real. Those bindinds sucked big time even in 2003.

I've spent far more than 10 minutes trying to locate a similar board...no luck. And it's funny how there is no branding anywhere on it. Was this common years ago?

Threads like this with that issue are a dime a centillion. Seriously, it's not even worth donating and I always tell people to just give old garbage boards to someone who may use it but that one, it's dumpster fodder. And in case you were wondering, the bindings are even more worthless. Hopefully you didn't buy it to resell.

I did buy it to flip it but only for $15

It reminds me of the K2 Farmer graphics.

Those Graphics are kinda cool. Would be a nice piece of art.

Try the "Vintage Snowboards Estimates, Offers, Sales and Trades that are Free" Facebook group. I've had good luck identifying boards and getting a solid judge free answer from people. If it has value they will tell you. If it doesn't, they will also tell you!

Good luck.

One other thought, take off those bindings and see if there is any other identifying information under them.

Art work does seem very similar. I was wondering since the bindings were K2 maybe the board would be too. Seems like back then it was more common to have brand matching bindings.

I would expect it to say K2 if it was a K2.
I did find the "Assassin" snowboard company, from 1997 to 1999. It was a pretty obscure reference so take it with a grain of salt. BUT....If it was actually collectible though, I would expect it to be easier to find information about it. From my point of view, a board doesn't necessarily need to be valuable to collect it. Sometimes sentiment is all you need. For me, I like to collect boards that have cool artwork. They may not have value to anyone else but me.
