    snowboard museum

    < >>

    I have no comment about Sutherland. I own over 700 boards and counting excluding over 70 boards being shipped in June from Europe.


    <>

    thank you. We want the general public to share the collection with us. Doen't do any good to own them and then keep them hidden from public view. We do not consider them an investment as some do. To us they are a tie and tribute to the past.

    Right now at Hoodoo reside the first Kemper made by David Kemper, the Sport 2000 made by Phillipe Payet (of Apocalypse Surf) one of 2 prototype Nideckers from 84, the only complete 1st year Morrow collection, Craig Kellys Burton racing performer ( he never raced it. It was a gift from Burton after he joined the team) and a lot more in the managers office wating to go up.

    Coming from Europe, 5 more Pogos, Local Motions, Muria Mucho Dinero, 2 swell Paniks (Amok & Magistral 185XSW) and a lot more.

    lmfao

    really, really cool that anyone is making the effort to commemorate the history of the sport we love.

    for some real entertainment, watch the ebay auctions...back and forth between these two

    I think snowboard museum is opening bid on about 90% of board auctions...

    You want a piece of history you should pick up das amputator from shred...that's a seriously unique board.

    Snowboard museum

    You have me mixed up with dennis nazari. I seldom bid on american ebay auctions unless I know the seller. And most serious collecters have almost all of the american made boards. I have most plus some like that Gnu swallowtail & Kemper that no one has. Other countries have been producing snowboards in one form or another as long as america. No one else showcases European boards. I read posts about Pogos on this board but I doubt anyone owns as many as I do. One of the best boards made as far as I am concerned. I have a reefer that I ride when conditions permit and when I want to blow peoples mind.

    The photo is below.

    dennis is U12, right?
    I like that you have a few looks in the collection - one of these days when the gear budget is replenished I need to get a couple of those.
    I only made that statement as you and I have gone up against each other on a couple of ebay auctions (like the Litigator 2 days ago)

    mldr1230 is you eh? I just bid on it because it was a Lib. Very nice boards but I only collect the real old ones from the late 80's. You should ride it. Libs are a bit soft but they ride very well none the less.

    Dennis is u12, republicansarecrooked, snowboardmuseum although I own the domain & name so I use the _com version. He seldom uses his version of snowboardmuseum anymore. Dennis has a nice collection, so does Sutherland. I just choose not to associate with them. We live different lifestyles and have different reasons why we collect.

    I bought it for a powder board...thought it looked pretty good...and $100 sure beats the hell out of buying a new board just for powder. plus I have a special place in my heart for Lib - first "real" sponsor I had...still have a couple of inner-courses left over from my racing days. Wish I had my doughboys still.

    In response to D-Sub

    In order of the photos:



    Message # 10, Pogos that are at Hoodoo but not up. A hand made snowboard, circa 1982 from a cabinet maker friend of ours in Germany by the name of Meik Syring. He made several of these and variations of them for himself and friends. I was lucky enough to get two of them from him. The third board is a Swell Panik which I plan on riding before it goes up.



    Message #9 has a Pogo Dreadlock, a Free surf from 86 and a Radical Slalom from 86.



    Message #8 has a photo of my personal reefer (green) and the wife’s dreadlock symmetric. The far right photo is a Snow Surfboard from 1986



    The bottom photo taken at my son’s home before Matt from Hoodoo picked these up are from left to right, 86 Variflex snowslider, 1979 Snow Fish from Switzerland, 89 Morrow Tremor, 81 Ayack ( from Japan), 85 Gnu Swallowtail and a common lamar.

    the photos with this post include an A-team snowboard, a Sno-Skidder made in 87 for kids, the standard snurfers & Skifer as well as a last model Snurfer.

    I have an Inner-Course at Hoodoo along with a Doughboy, Pacifier and Litagator. All first year boards along with the infamous Shalom board. You can never go wrong buying a Lib in my book. I have a Apocalypse 176 Big Stick which I like but my favorite is still one of my Kelly Slopestyles. I have several that I keep rotating around. If you get to whistler or later this month to meadows when I visit the grandkids, look for a guy riding with a noose as a lease. That will be me.

    You were sponsored by lib back in the day? DId you check out the photo of the swallowtail Gnu I have at Hoodoo? Mike Olsen wrote me and asked how I managed to get my hands on one since the few made were in his hands. This one was pulled from the press by a friend who worked at Gnu when it started.

    very nice collection. Im glad you found this site alright! transworld snowboarding is not the place for this post. Most of them barely even know a snowboard from those plastic toys they sell at Walmart. Some of those boards youve got look like great fun to ride, i could never collect them. id find myself taking them up to find out exactly why they didnt catch on! especially the psychedellic painted dreadlocks and reefers.

    I have ridden quite a few of the boards. Several of the Pogos are our personal ones. They ride great in all conditions. The thing about Euro boards like the Reefer & Dreadlocks are they are similar to the old Nitro Diablos. They are a race inspired board but still have the freestyle nose & tail. And in both cases they are asym boards. That is a time which was short lived at best. Pogo makes great swallowtails and longboards. I have an original Kamakazi along with a Shaman, Secret Spot and I awaiting the new Maverick 230. We also have a couple of hardcores waiting to be shipped in June to us and a 3 style I just won at ebay in germany.

    The board that would be fun to try to ride is the Sport 2000 by Phillipe Payet. It is that wood board above the backhill & kemper. these are two of the boards awaiting transport to Hoodoo.

    By the way, in my opinion, if at all possible, ride the boards you collect at least once if you have never ridden one before.

    Nice quiver you have there. I love the barfoot. Chuck knew how to make a board and I love the colors he had. I have several on display and they never fail to get attention. He never received the reconigtion he deserved. He was the Sims board company.

    The Lopez is just great. I bought two from the old North Shore shop in Bend years ago. One is a puke green and white and the other is orange and white.

    We ran into him at the bottom of the Summit lift at Mt. Bachelor. He was helping his son into his bindings. The man can ride.

    so what can you tell about Pogo Dreadlock symmetrisch?

    Is it good for carving? and how does it behave in powder?
    can you compare it to Impact BX or Hardcore BX?

    thanks

    the board is a fantastic ride. Very quick edge to edge and stable at speed. I prefer a Dupraz in powder but I am an old school rider. The few times I have ridden it in 6" or more of pow it rode well as long as I rode back of center.

    I never rode either of the boards you have mentioned. I ride hybrid boots with Flow bindings, not plates.
