Have you ever sold your favorite board?

:O I just did it...

Well, I don't quite know if it was really the favorite, but certainly my most ridden board last year - Prior 4WD 174.

Why I did it? I don't quite know why... Probbably to get myself of it and ride the other more specialised boards I've got? Or simply to live more space for metal dreams? Or because I realised that I had abaut 5 AMish type boards?

Anyhow, it didn't go too far. I'll be watching Roy ride it, weekly. You never know, if I missed it too much, I could always talk him into selling it back to me :D

Let's hear your stories...

I had a COILER AMX169 with 19cm waist, red topsheet. This board was the first board that I could really carve. Before getting it, I was timidly carving on occasion. Where are you my friend?!!

I think I sold it to someone in PA.

Still seeing snow and safe (somewhat) in PA. It has been one hell of a board; from groomer to trees. :biggthump It was also my first ride for hardboots and really a great board to learn on. It doesn't see the time on the slopes as it use to; had some additions to the quiver, but still nice for early season and following the 11 year old around. I had thought about passing her on to another beginner, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Thanks again,

Jesse

Donek 186gs. Wonderful board, would buy it again. Sold it while it still had good value in order to finance my ongoing tour of all the boutique manufacturers. No regrets.

Only board I regret selling is my 1989 Safari Comp II, which I sold for $200 to put towards a '91 PJ7, which I still have. Wish I could have it back.

Every board I've ever owned has been my favorite board...

:D

Exactly! Every board was my favorite at one point in time, that is why I bought them. Does not mean that they would be my favorite now though. As my abilities have changed, so have my board requirements.

No. Which is why I have a garage full of boards (and skis, and boots, and...) that I never use anymore.

Gotta learn to let stuff go...(I've been cleaning the garage today, it's on my mind!)

Volant 173. Rode it for 5 years and it still had good camber even with my 220 lbs pounding the s**t out of it. Sold it to finance my first Coiler (long decambered from a crash). Before the Volant my favorite was a Sims MFR 174. I didn't sell it though, I broke two of them and would have bought a third if I could have found one.

Sold an RT SL, I really believe it was a 168, but have never since seen one that long, so It may have been a 163. Nevertheless, I loved that board. Sold it for a dime and a song to a kid in a boarding school who wanted to get into hardbooting. Sold it to him with a pair of Cateks.

Anything for the kids...

Don't think that it was my favorite board since there wasn't anywhere to ride it in MN, (plus my life situation) but I sold my Burner 197 to Bryan (OSB). It was a sweet ride............Bryan, you may get a call later this winter about it unless you want to dicker on a Tinkler.

My favorite board of all times was my Santa Cruz Tau. I absolutely loved that board, sold to get a new one the next year. The best part is I sold it to get a Sims Terry Kidwell, one of the black ones, it was a horrible board, the nose folded if you leaned forward at all. As you can tell I am an old freestyler. My next favorite board was my Sims Halfpipe, it was my first "modern" board, it was also my first non-used board. Then my Burton Craig kelly, one of the orange, yellow and white (most had black instead of white) ones, that was a fun board..........

Boy, to all those who say that all there boards have been there favorites, I could tell you some stories. The first Mystery air, the all black one........ A NASTY board, I was glad when it got stolen.
