Never waxed never ridden? And its a #midlength too? Don't get it. Always heard yellow attracts sharks.

I just sold my HPSB in the middle of summer and was offered $25 more than
my asking price. People here in the pnw seem to think a used surfboard is worth
much more than it really is. :roll:

You priced that board low from what I could tell. Looked super clean and was a ....Lost Coulda got 3+ bills for it. I've dumped 2 boards recently on CL, both sold within a few days. Used board market is crazy hot rn with new board prices so high, foam and fiberglass prices up, and shapers backed up for months. There are used board brokers/shops popping up all over down in SoCal. I think there will be an eventual flood of boards on the used market, already starting to see this in the van market, but now is a good time to sell boards.

The trend has reached Oregon, as evidenced by a flyer I found on my windshield the other day.

Offed that SUPER Fling I picked up last Fall on CL for 4 bills and what I paid initially. Had some fun ones this past Winter on it, but not enough foam for true spring summer grovel. Offed a 6' ..Lost Sub Scorcher II double wing swallow I picked up 5 or so years ago and a hacked up set of honeycomb AM2's for 220. Was a magic OR SB but a little under what I am riding volume wise now and kinda old.

On order. Nothing. Some of that moneys going towards a Roberts board someone is holding for me back in Rhody that I'll keep there form my annual visits. More of an off the rack CL used board searcher. My experience with customs has been variable. Maybe an GBuzz or Ugly Twin next year now Dennis is repin Stretch.

Beat me to posting this......... always heard The Landlord was attracted to the color yellow. Avoided anything yellowish for that reason alone. Looks tasty though and would prob destroy Cove rights. Get in early and set up for that black water inside barrel when dat mid winter bank set up. Dims look good. Love an odd length number. Custom fosho. Bet that $50 is negotiable. $600 w/ a $100 set of fins. Pretty much walking with board for 5 bills. Throw down an offer in the spirit of Craigslist.

Or catch a GBuzz and skate into that black inside barrel section hacking off a few turns before getting there. Down to 450. Prob walk with board for 4 bills.
