This is just an invite to a war on words, blame game and accusation of innuendos. :-)

How about focusing on the positive things ;-)

ok , lets say older models....like until 2005.
not the new ones, cause i believe there is no really bad board these days.
By the way a friend of mine payed 1000 euros for a...board.
no handle on it-and the worst straps and pads i ever saw.
2007 model !!! jesus the board sucked...anyway...
i told him he is a big time sucker. BIG TIME.

The worst board I've ridden was my homemade, plywood, door shaped, finless, rockerless, marble laminex base lightwind weapon. But it was kind of interesting. And made a good coffee table...
The worst production board was my "beginner" board, an old "e-boards" twintip. Long, narrow, heavy, no flex, boardleash......shocker! I got myself an Underground Wave Tray, and all of a sudden I could kite!

1000 Euro for a board!!!! Tell your friend I’m selling 4 acres of land on Mars and it’s going cheap. :D :D The worst board I’ve ever ridden was the Cabrinha Custom 128M, the board feels like your on a ply wood and heavy as hell, no place to grab to do board offs,it’s just crap I bought it brand new after the 2 time on the board I sold it.
