I saw this ad on Ebay and it brought back a flood of good memories about my first snowboard. It was a Ride (Freeride?) 153, I was 13 and paid $250 for it including Preston lowback bindings. One day riding it that stands out in my mind is a sweet midweek powder day at Bachelor in 1995 when it dumped more than 12 inches over night and just pucked white fluff all day. I'd only ridden maybe 10 times but I knew enough to set my bindings back as far as I could on that little 153. It floated well and I quickly learned that deep pow was one of lifes sweetest blessings.

Awww memories... Anyone else care to share stories from back in the day when they bought thier first board? Please share.
