my first snowboard was a 1989 Burton Cruise 155 - i bought it used in ~91 and had rode it for a year or two on mostly east coast ice before picking up a used Apocalypse...

i sold the burton a long time ago and sometimes think about buying one on ebay...here is pick of the board (from the web):

i borrowed a friend's winterstick splitstick as my first split and purchased a new sentury team after three of four days of splitting...i'm now a venture storm (pics of those boards are in the quiver thread, but here they are again) - the sentury and the unity DIY have made their way to other folks...

Image

thought people would enjoy seeing some of these old boards too - (some of the older boards from a friend's collection)...

That brings back good memories. My first board was a '90 Burton Free5 that my parents bought for me for Christmas in 1989. I rode it for a couple of years and my second board was a '94 Burton CK Slopestyle in the fall of '93. I'm pretty sure I have those years right, it was the one with black on black graphics. I still have both of those boards. After that it was a string of boards from a local Burlington, WA company called Hauser and then a Burton Custom, a handful of Division 23s, a bunch of boards from Sims, then Options (still my favorite boards), and lately it's been all Libs. I still have some of my old boards, I'll never let go of the CK or my first snowboard. I really need to get them up on the wall.

I'm always amazed at how far set back the bindings are in those early boards. It's like the front foot is on the center of gravity/pivot point or something. They must have ridden pow with the brakes on all the time. I imagine constantly leaning forward to go fast and getting leg burn in the front.

My first board was this Nitro Pyro I wanna say it was a 93'/94'. I have not rode the board since I put it away but want to ride it for the hell of it. Crazy to think I rode with the heels hanging over like that.
