Hey guys I have two older boards and am wanting to put them on my local Craig's list but no idea where to start pricing used gear? My new stuff is far superior and figured if I can sell these at decent price maybe I can get my girl a new board. Any help would be appreciated

The CBS has some damage at the tip very minor but other than that just miner used surface scratches.

Any ideas ??

Not much demand for older boards, maybe $50-75 each?

Maybe take them to your local board shop and trade them in toward another board?

Do places do that??? I live in Tulsa, ok I think the closest thing we have is sun and ski to a board shop.

Unless you just need space - those would become my "loaner boards".

The one great thing about having closed toe boots in a size 8 is none of my friends can fit in them, so no one else can use my board. The 9 year-olds that can fit in them, don't want to board on a 145.

Jersey nailed it. $50 sounds right, $75 if you're looking for every penny. I'd start at $75 myself.

Those look pretty vintage and mid grade at best. I have several boards in the same class I tried to sell cheap over the last few years without success. Last time I was at my local dealer I noticed one of my better vintage boards was the basis for a bench. Really disheartening.

Unless you get lucky they may be best used as stated above as loners. Another option is some dealers have used equipment days where you can sell your gear flea market style. The down side here is that the dealer basically lists your gear for you and gives you credit at their pro shop on what they sell it for. Could be bad or good depending on what you get/need.

Where are you located? What size are the bindings on the Blue CWB? I may be interested in that one. Looking for a loaner board.

I am located in Tulsa ok the CWB has extra large and the hyper has large. I posted them on Craigslist here in Tulsa. Started of high see what happens. Drop if no bites or decent offer... The hyper light has been a great starter board for the random person who wants to try and currently my gf suffers through ridding it but would love for her to get on that fit her...

If interested hit me up I can get you better pics.

I thought about just hanging them in the game room too. Just seems to be now everyone has a board so taking spares just takes up space anymore.

i would take bindings off and make a bench out of the boards. probably would mean your bindings go to waste but atleast you got a cool bench for your dock or game room.

^^^I am digging the idea about the furniture. However, if you need the money, start higher and go down from there. You can never negotiate the price up on stuff like that. I say around $100 each or $175 for both, OBO. Makes it sound like someone is getting a better deal but you still get a little cash from them. I have sold several things on CL and made money every time. You just have to be careful of some of the characters that you are dealing with. Do you have a Play it Again Sports in your area? They probably wouldn't give you very much, but it is an idea.

I'd put them up for 75 or 80. Leave it to craigslist for a goon to show up to your house with 20% less and try to haggle. Anything less than that above your expectations and I figure you might waste your time once or twice. You can try ski it again too
