You are bidding on a RARE, no longer made 2002 model Genuine Burton 157 Jim Rippey designed snowboard. This board belongs to a very close friend of mine who can no longer use it due to a bad knee injury, so he asked me to list if for him. This is an absolutely awesome snowboard from the quality craftsmanship and design right down to the spectacular graphics (and notice the heavy metal flake in the board, it sparkles in the light). If you ask any serious snowboarder they will tell you that Burton is probably the best snowboard manufacture out t and that Jim Rippey is certainly a very talented and tip-top designer. Jim Rippey designed boards are sought after and t are all kinds of nice features designed into this board including the engraved aluminum tip protector. This board is my friend's favorite (out of the "3" he has) but he said he hates to see it sit when he knows he can never ride it again (can't risk damaging the knee). Overall this board is in great condition and has only light scuffs/scratches due to normal riding and the worst thing being a small chip in the upper corner on the top of the board (see pics) which in no way affects the quality or function of the board. A stick-on Burton brand boot ice scrapper has been added to the board (which can easily be removed without damage to the board itself). Again, this is an excellent opportunity to get your hands on a "rare, out of production" Jim Rippey snowboard that you will be proud to showoff to your boarding buddies. These are getting harder and harder to get ahold of and I am offering this as a NO RESERVE auction so please bid to win and good luck.
