I was looking around the site last night and stumbled into the gear section. I actually found the first board I ever owned. I got a few good laughs as I read some of the reviews on the gear from back in the day.

Here is my first which I still have...1999 Hyperlite Charge 147. What was yours?

My first board was the 02 CWB Absolute shape. That was a great board and very beginner friendly. It was loose enough with a small fin to be fun, but forgiving enough and set a nice edge for a beginner. I had several riders on the boat with more advanced boards who were trying to stick a trick and both times they stuck the trick on the Absolute first.

gdavid, that is the board I learned on! Classic.

My first board that the family bought was the Wake Tech Big Air. After that we got a LF Free 135 in the classic oatmeal color (Train, I still have it!).

Then the first board I bought myself was the O'brien Evil Twin, learned my first inverts on that bad boy.

1) was the Hyperlite BAFF ( Bad A$$ Flying Fish)

2) Waketech Byerly Blunt

3) Blindside - don't remember model

Have more but those are the oldest boards I have.

Best part is I have kept all my boards from over the years from the beginning. They will get mounted in my man cave on day with all my snowboards. Once I have a man cave anyway.lol. Need a bigger house first.

I remember that I had a hyperlite skurfer as my first board, but don't remember the model of it. Just remember that when I first started nobody else was doing it on my lake so I had no idea how to get up....Took me a couple of hours of being dragged around on the board to be able to stand up.

Man, this takes me back! My first board was the 1995 Hyperlite Shapiro Pro with the bungee wraps. It still blows my mind that Darin could throw mobes on that thing!

Andy that picture is classic!!!!

Before I got my Hyperlite Charge, I used to ride a directional red HO board (tri fin) with sandal bindings behind a Sea Doo. It was awesome.
