    Love the Performer Elite 150... I saved my paper route money to buy that board in fall of 1986 (9th grade!). Also love the clandestine shot of the 91X sticker.
    I like to make silly carving videos with my GoPro Helmet Hero.

    I'd like to pick up another Performer someday. During it's second season I loaned it to a friend and just like what had previously happened to me, both bindings pulled out with the inserts still attached. Well, not wanting to end the day early, we went to the local hardware store and bought some carriage bolts, nuts and washers and just poked holes right through the base and re-attached the bindings. Foam core rules!!
    PS. That's why it's mounted goofy...

    I've always preferred 91X over KROQ or any of the other LA/OC stations. But it doesn't always come in clear up here in OC. I got that sticker when they had a booth setup at Snow Summit one weekend. The board it's preserved on is an old Sim's Kidwell that eventually became my trampoline board.

    This is at Mammoth circa 1993. I think the board is a Burton Asym Air. Notice the Elfgen tongues on my bindings. And I still have those Wave Rave snowboard pants.

    Stylin'!

    I thought I would add a tiptic of sorts that I scanned in on a crappy scanner.

    1st pic is 1990 on a Burton Performer Elite 140. Boy were those crappy bindings!
    2nd and 3rd are from 1991 on a Burton Air 163(?) which is still in my garage

    The pics were taken at Bridger Bowl Montana, my favorite area.

    **Edit - BlueB fixed it And a fine job at that!

    Found this one.

    Going through old photos last night.
    From 1991 at Mount Sunapee (of course)
    riding a Burton Free 6, look closely and you can
    already see I was turning the bindings to a more carving stance.

    sweet vintage shot. my first snowboard: gnu antigravity w/ lange zr (super stiff) ski boots in highbacks. was just crossing over from skiing, and hated floppy sorels, so adopted the hybrid boot / binding setup. extra points for oakley factory pilots and, of course, awesome hair.

    More '80's stuff

    Here's a few more.... (apologies for high/large res)

    TWSnowboarding Mag, First Issue ever, Fall '87



    Winterstick and Sims ad (Craig Kelly R.I.P.) in same mag:



    Burton Catalog:




    Remember when only a few places allowed boarding? (list from Burton catalog):


    Also remember when we had to be "certified" before we could even buy a lift ticket?

    I have a bunch of old boards in my garage but they're not particularly where they could be photographed at the moment.

    Instead here are some old shots from before I had any decent camera gear or had learned how to use what I did have.

    This is probably very much the Euro perspective. Burton was very trendy but hugely expensive in the UK - 500 for a board, which is the same as they cost here now, both stupidly expensive. It was cheaper in Finland (where I lived some of the time), but still expensive.

    1990-1991 Season/ Wiegele's
    O'Neil powder suits plus Windsurfing Cheimsee gear. All hardbooters except for one. Mostly Niedecker. Middle shot taken from a 195 Lacroix Mono. Antennas are no longer as long as that in the last shot! Wiegele was always snowboarder friendly; CMH had problems with some traditionalists (who once voted me an "honorary skier" because I could ride rings around them).


    1992/3 season - Aonach Mor, Scotland

    Mark 1 Nitro Scorpion with Fritschi bindings, Dynafit 3F Comp S boots. Scotland (that's a snow fence). 15cm of wet snow on pink granite: the Nitro was the perfect powder board for that, you just had to know where the granite was. On the right is the first line I put in at the summit of the resort that day. I just put line after line down there as I was the only person on the lift. There were no other snowboarders at the resort at all, which was pretty common at the time. Snowboarding was picking up generally, but the UK wasn't leading the charge.

    The Scorpion was the first of the "noo skool race" boards in Europe - symmetrical, sensible, quick, revolutionary. Before that the choice was basically Burton Asym-Air clones or straight Asym race boards, which just seemed wrong to me.

    1993/4 season - Big White or Sun Peaks?
    I broke the nose of my Scorpion at Vernon, and bought the only Alpine board I could find in BC as a replacement. Later I bought another Scorpion.

    Santa Cruz GS board, Sims bindings, Dynafit boots. I think this was Sun Peaks (way snowboarder's right), but it could have been Big White. The purple was very fashionable - I worked in Paris so this was Degre 7/ Patrick Vallecant stuff.

    1996/7 Wiegele's
    I may as well finish the oldie sequence... Here's a Burton Supermodel (Mark 1) 168, which was the first real powder board I owned. Riding this, versus riding a race board in powder was night and day: it turned me into the fastest rider in the heli rather than one of the crowd. People still argue about that, but there it is. The first shot is the board plus the Burton step-in bindings of the day, which worked ok for me although they seemed inelegant and you had to watch your fingers. In the back of the shot is my second Scorpion; that one I picked up in Annecy (the first was from Grenoble).
    The final shot is what made me take up photography rather more seriously. This was taken by Lorne Green who was the staff photographer that day. He's rather good. That's the Supermodel in use.

    I had a 174 Supermodel from that same year. That was a great board. Great shape and lots of snap.

    I wore it out and then used it as a rock board for a while. Last year I passed it on to a needy boarder. I was sad to see it go.

    Yup, I rode the 174 on bigger days - a different colour if I remember right. I've still got my Supermodel somewhere about. Would be a respectable board even today. They were the standard heli-board for years, superseded only by Fish etc.

    I still have my 174 Supermodel...'97 IIRC, blue, but a more "royal" blue than the one in the pic, and a lime green base. This is the board that moved me from skidding to carving....beautiful profile. It's still in great shape, too. Don't ride it much anymore, tho.
