Perhaps you've never sold anything before. One of the most annoying things that happens when selling something is having several people low ball you with offers that include $500 cash and a "really awesome $1000 camera I bought last year." Or sometimes you get the, "I'm really interested in your item, and I want to buy it, but I only have $600. Wait two weeks and I'll give you $800." Setting a price high helps avoid those issues.
I think it's pretty obvious that this is not a deal when you consider last years price. It is basically what I paid for it when you consider the costs associated with purchasing the board. Additionally, it is in new condition, and I felt that the price should reflect that. Just know that the high asking price means I'm not a motivated seller. You can also be sure I won't post this multiple times dropping the price in $50 increments.
If you are interested, PM me and make an offer.
