    Buy it, 100%.

    If you don't you'll regret it. And for less than $200 I highly doubt it'll be preventing you from getting your June bills paid on time.

    I smile when I see my old boards at local breaks. First new custom board is the one I think that would be cool to find. Blue Hawaii twinzer with blue flames and Pottz model.

    I also had the opportunity to buy my older brother’s board that he never ever let me use whe I was a grom. I hardly ride it but it was lucky to find it.

    I would say 100% buy it and keep it original.

    Buy it back. No one posts this much about an old board and not want it back, if even for nostalgia reasons.

    As SharkB8 will tell you, I am not the best person to give advice about whether to purchase a board like that. I have a board like my first one, the brother of my second one, a Bolt like the one I rode in Hawai'i when I lived there and a few others. Here's what I say, BUY IT!!! When you look at it, it will make you smile!!!

    Sounds like the consensus is in!!

    Time to bust out the wallet and buy back your board!

    It's strangely comforting to know that I'm not the only one who things the same way about my first board...

    If it means something to you...do it. I don't want my first board...but the 2nd or 3rd...and a few therafter, yes.

    Buy it back and keep it as is. I still have my first board and it is worthless to anyone but me. It was a total beater when I bought it for $50 way back in the day.
