    trading in a used board to purchase a used board is generally a bad idea. Nothing against shops, but you would generally be better off selling the used board yoursoef and paying cash for the used board you want - and bargain the price down.

    As far as used boards go...press down all over the deck and look for any soft spots. If the glass flexes easily in some spots, this indicates delamination which means the board is falling apart.
