    Show your oldies!

    My "board wall" project turned into full "board office"...

    Pic 1:
    A 200 RR Swt - Mint. I'm still going to ride her when conditions are right.
    Hooger Booger Grinder 168 - NOS. Clone of my 1st alpine board.
    Rossi A 173, pre insert era
    Crazy Banana 155 - NOS
    Look 140. This thing has full metal layer on top! One of the most functional shapes ever.
    Limited All-Around 163. Not really old enough to be here, but my 1st own board. It's just keeping the spot for a NOS Hooger Booger Booster 170 (on it's way).

    Pic 2:
    Mistral Extasy 159 goofy - NOS
    Burton PJ 163 regular - In a single run that somone did, it ran over a rock...
    Buton Asym-Air 153 woody regular
    Oxygen KR 159 regular - NOS

    Pic 3:
    Xeena X11 159 - NOS. Not that old, but deserves the spot for being so unusual. Originally came with stick-on bikini. It'a a schtubbesse - 14m scr on a 159/20 board...

    Freesurf Highlander woody deserves to be here, but I ran out of space and want to give her a go...

    I see that you're an expert on female anatomy. That board is hilarious.

    I know the feeling.

    Anyway I was looking through some old pics and found this.

    Circa 1990.




    And this, 1993. Love the nordica storm trooper skiboots and Burton pre-insert plate bindings. Damn I was cool. It looks like Colorado, but it's Blackcomb halfway between the top of Jersey cream and the rendezvous lodge looking north. I still have those goggles too.

    Bomber, you are a big guy, right? She's kinda soft even for me at 180lbs. Unless you had a completely different application on your mind

    Dave, those are outrageous goggles!

    This was February 1999. If you can guess all the boards, bindings, and guitar, you get...........absolutely nothing. The black board on the left is pretty rare.

    A tele, a Burton somethingprime, and some other ****?

    Very good photo composition, using the objects of interest as a mild bokeh and brining out the fibers in that plaid thing.

    I'll try...

    Fender, maybe Telecaster,
    UP,
    Hooger, don't know the model,
    Alp, or Coil,
    last one is hard to tell, but knowing that you are Burton boy, I'd say Stat.

    The guitar is a Korean fender telecaster.

    Boris is right, from right to left, ultra prime 62, hooger booger "next1" 167, burton alp 171, burton stat7.

    The "next1" was the first dedicated carving board that I owned. I used to think it was pretty stiff when I had it. As time went by, I came to realize it was only a little stiffer than a spaghetti noodle after boiling.

    I have never seen another stat7. It does not appear in the burton catalog of that year. The biggest in the catalog was the stat6. The stat7 was a lot like the schtubbies that coiler is building. A lot of effective edge for it's length with a bigger sidecut radius than is normal. It had a sidecut of around 13.5 meter on a 170. The nose was very soft. I used it as a powder board. The soft nose combined with the gentle sidecut was great in soft stuff.

    Dave, I believe they were only issued to Burton "Team" riders.

    I have seen a few. Quite rare though.

    I like the simple graphics.

    Slicker Shot!

    Kurt, very cool!!

    I see very few shots of riders on Slickers!!

    Only 300 were ever made. One season, three lengths, made in California by
    skate legend Steve Cathey.

    Can you send me a high res version of you riding a Slicker. I would like to use it in oldsnowboards when I get it going again.

    Very cool!!

    I'll see your K-Way and Vuarnets, and raise you earmuffs... Haa! Haa! Ha!

    1983, Gaspe Peninsula, Burton Powdergun.


    I never got to see a Slicker back then. Only saw them in mags. Do you still have it?

    Cool!!!!

    Sweet shot dude!!!

    No I sold the thing unfortunatley.... I saw one on Ebay a year or two ago and it went for $2500.00 or something crazy. I would have spent a grand on it.

    And I thought original Madds were expensive!!!!!

    My quiver. Note the Burton that I believe is the same one as RJ @ Milk in the above photo. I thought mine was a 1989 though. The 2nd and 3rd pictures can be bigger but the forum auto-resizes them.
