slaying me

my doctor told me the other day "if you'd like to still be able to walk in 10 years, you have to take at least a year off of snowboarding & skiing". sucktacular! i guess that has something to do w/ my 2 compressed vertabrae, multiple breaks in my toes, my bad hips and knees, etc, etc. at least i'll be able to concentrate on the record store. right? right. ARGH.

so ... anyone wanna buy a snowboard (& bindings)? i'd gotten rid of my skiis and other boards cuz i wanted to just take it mellow this year and now i have to dump this one as well.


  • option sansalone ('01)
  • 162.5 cm long
  • team model (little stiffer flex in the tail than the regular sansalone)
  • regular width (perfect for my size 10 feet)
  • used maybe 50 times (i had 3 snowboards and a pair of skiis so i switched it up a lot)


  • burton cfx ('02)
  • medium
  • carbon-fiber construction
  • red w/ brownish hi-backs
  • italian leather gel-filled straps
  • aluminum ratchets (ie, they don't break in the cold)
  • used maybe 100 times

i'll post some pics when i get my hands on a digi-cam.

these are my BABIES and have been treated as such -- they're in excellent condition. i used to be a ski & snowboard technician so i haven't ridden more than two days in a row without doing a full tune-up on the board. there's a couple scratches on the top-sheet and a couple minor dings on the bottom. the bindings are in almost perfect shape -- there's a minor chip on the right one but it's not going to cause any structural damage. a buddy of mine is the burton rep and he checked it out for me. i was going to buy new ones but he told me to hold onto these ones as they're apparently among the best bindings burton has ever produced and the chip ain't gonna make them weaker.

so yeah, snowboard + bindings: $400 --> this is top of the line gear, it would cost over $1200 brand new (after tax). maybe even more, considering you couldn't buy this board in stores. the bindings cost me $400 after tax (on a sale) and i think i paid $500 for the snowboard -- they're regularily $700 or so after tax.

by the way, this kills me to sell these. don't be surprised if i clutch it like my life depends on it when someone actually buys my precious, precious ride.

interested? mail me or phone me (604.932.2916) or drop by my condo (#4 2400 Cavendish Way -- #4 Whiski Jack)
