2009 Burton Blunt 155 / Burton Fresstyle Bindings / Burton Hail Boots
 
This setup quickly gave way to my 2010 Nirto Team 155 / Burton Cartels / Van Ciro Focus BOA
 
Boards typically last pretty long if you don't ride freestyle, but the addicition keeps telling you that you need a new board LOL
In Pacific NW for part of the 2012/2013 Season.

2009 Capita Space Metal Fantasy 147. Still my favorite board. Its so much fun and has taken me from barely getting down a run without falling to hitting boxes and rails with confidence and backcountry powder runs. Plus the graphics are just awesome :)

mine was a very obscure brand. no, literally. it's called obscure. i'm going to be riding it again the first few times i hit up the slopes this year because i sent my other board to the states already where i'll be needing it for CO pow :)

here's the old one sans bindings (those are another story altogether):

I remember I was in a ski shop in Columbus (Ohio) and the guy working there gave me a free snowboard. The reason was it had a small chip on the base so he couldnt sell it but I was able to fix it. Anyway it was a LTD sentry board. Not a particularly good board but it was free

Snowjam Sonar 167W with some crappy Morrow bindings.  I affectionately refer to it as "The Bus".  It was stupidly stiff and heavy and the bindings were entirely to soft to steer it.  Wish I still had it though, I'd love to take her for a few laps.

My first board was a no-name one that I picked up at a sporting goods store.  The board and bindings looked like a fisher price toy.  hahaha..
 
Now that I've replaced it after a long number of years, I realized how crappy that thing was.

I first got a 2009 Burton Wire 162 and didn't think much of it and that got me (it's a downhill race board!)

Ended up selling it after I got a 2009 Burton Mayhem on Sale at Sports Authority. It's a 162W and pretty sick.

2000 Option Bella with Flow bindings.  That thing is great and still rides well.  I "upgraded" last season to a Sierra V Spot with Burton Lexa bindings.  The new one feels like a feather compared to my older board.

Rage Prostyle 151.  It was advertised with a "full wood core!"  

Oh yeah... I can feel the jealousy.

Liquid - 159 with the clicker pro step in bindings.
I still have that setup but the board is in pretty bad shape. 
It served me well.

Which shop?

My first board was a Rossignol Nomad. Can't remember what year that is...I'm thinking 99/00-ish. Bindings were Burton MIssions, of about the same year. Served it's purpose at the time. Now serves it's purpose as the base of my snowboard bench.

I have no idea what year or model it was, but it was a red kid's Burton board, with a robot dog on it.  Got it in in '99, so might have been a year or two old.

Trying to find pics of it, but no luck.  I think it's still in the attic at my parent's house.

Anyone have that link that was posted a while back, the site basically had a listing and pictures of almost all the old burton boards?

163 Lamar Easyrider. It was extremely to big for me but I got it for $25.   I think it made me a better rider, as soon as I got on a board more my size it was much easier.
