    Hey Frothers. Looking for a split board. Range from 158 to 161. Looking to get the whole kit if I can. Board, Bindings, Skins, Poles. I think that will do me. If you have one that you are looking to shift, let me know. Also, I have a load of gear I can swap if you want, but if not. Happy to part with cash!!!

    My 2c, you're looking at a pretty niche and slow market, but expanding nevertheless.
    As an indicator I've had 2 set-ups since 2004 :)

    Having said that, you could:
    - Offer a bit more info on your set-up that you want to swap for, maybe there is someone out there opposite to you in wanting to go shorter or longer
    - Call into Rhythm and/or reach out to @firstlight and see if they can sort something out for you (nsw focus sorry)

    Good luck with getting your new set-up, keep frothing :)

    Join the Australian Backcountry and Splitboarders of Australia groups on facebook if you haven't already.

    Gear comes up pretty regularly.

    Unless you can find a really good deal i'd pretty much recommend going for new kit.
    A lot of the second hand boards I see come up are overpriced, and you're probably getting a setup that's a couple of years old in terms of weight and tech.

    Have a think about what you'd be willing to pay for a new gear that's a season or two old, and then apply that to the second hand stuff you see out there, and consider it's undoubtedly got some form of wear and tear, even if it's only been used for a few days.

    This seems to be especially true for the price of second hand gear versus end-of-season sales.

    i've got a couple i'd part with:
    161.5 Gnu riders choice (an older camber model) with a voile diy split job set up for a natural stance rider. ridden maybe half a dozen times. Have some skins with it - although not sure how good the glue is on them. You could have that board swaps for a new diy kit (i think they are around $300) so i could do another one myself.
    162 K2 panoramic 2012. ridden 1 day. Bought it for a Tahoe trip and got skunked for snow so rode park slush for 6 weeks. With skins and all the hardware required. Would probably be after $600 for that (remember that if you buy a factory deck you still need a $250 interface kit to go with kit)

    want to hang on to my bindings so don't have any of them to offer

    ps. can throw in baseplates to mount normal bindings for both of those too but split specific bindings are more highly recommended

    Hey mate, I've got a Solution 161 from 2012/13, Karakorum Split30s with crampons, and Spark (G3) skins with tail clips and new glue. I'm probably done riding for this year cause I live up near Coffs Harbour, and planning to buy a new kit next year. I probably want an unrealistic amount of money cause I'm still very attached to what was my dream setup, but you can make me an offer. Plenty of war wounds but everything is 100% functional. Also, after the first tour, all splitboards will have scratches. Nature of the game/ leaving the resort.
