Hi Nakaniko, French dealers have a kind of official tariff for used boards/sails (Argus). A drop of 45% the first year is not surprising and then maybe 15% of the remaining value every year. A brand new board that have been used 2/3 times already looses 15%. However this tariff shows only five years back. Most boards between 5 and 10 years are traded within 200/500€ depending on pedigree and condition. Boards older than 10 years are in the sub 150€ range, notably due to the sensible evolution towards shorter/wider shapes in the early 2000's. There are a few exceptions like longboards or extreme wave boards which retain more value for specialists.
