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?

skurfer blast. got it the spring of 1990. kept it for several years as I bounced between that and my ski. first real board was an LF Free 135 which I picked up in I believe 1995 or 1996. wish I still had that one.

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.

My first board was a 1998 O'brien Buzz, I love that board because it was mine and I could ride anytime i wanted, looking back it was the worst riding board I have ever touched.

This was the first twin tip I ever bought. I also had an Obrien Apex skiboard, but couldn't find a pic of it.

Bindings were a different story. I went through so many bindings back then, it seems like I owned every pair that was out.

mine was an old black and red evolution that had hols in the bottom of it because the bolts for the bindings were too long and they went strait through the bottom

Ok so I rode a board I have never seen before or since and it's not on the wakeworld here.
It is a circa 95 Neptune "Vicious Fishes" model. I know it was either the or one of the first twin
tip designs ever made. Anyone else of heard of it? I still have it today....just don't ride it . Here's the only pic of it I have right now.... and I promise you I am NOT high in this picture hahaha.

Heck yeah, first board I ever rode was a directional Waketech the BFA maybe. I can't remember exactly. The first board I ever threw down cash for was the Sound Harris Pro. Here's all the boards I've owned over the years.

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.

I still have a good condition Origin Skull that I am interested in selling if either of you are interested. Blew my knee before I could really ride it much. It does have some slider marks, but core is still in great shape. Just been sitting in the garage.

this is my favorite board of all time, would love to take it off your hands. Email me with pics and a price Linsey@nova.edu. I rode both versions of this board, the blue skull and red skull and then purchased the joyride version as a collector to find out my dad gave it away to my uncle as a decoration of his tiki hut . But anyhow, as long as it isn't destroyed, I will buy it 100%

A-dub, that's the one. It's also in the wakeworld gear guide jobby. There are pics of so many old boards I felt like I was looking at a buyer's guide from 1996.

since I'm here I'll add my first board: connelly dually from 1996. I went round and around on what board I wanted...a sea horse, an impala, blah blah blah, but that dually won out on celebrity worship. I remember being so pumped when my shop got that board...I special ordered it with the "high end" boots at the time. the days!!!
