It is not just any old snowboard though, it is a 1977 Burton experimental prototype. It was snapped up on eBay. But who is the mystery buyer?

The owner was given it by Jake Burton after he helped with the design.

It was in lieu of payment and was just one of 100 protypes.

This one has hardly been used and apparently stored in a dry garage.

For snowboard collectors these sort of items only come round once in while, hence the price.

The buyer has not been identified but there is some speculation in may have been bought by the Burton company.

So, is it worth it?
