For sale is a Russ Short 6'6 20.5 2 7/8ths. Rare to find a 5 fin the RS model, very groovy but sensitive stick.
Love this board and may regret it but I have another stick on the way, and this didn't get much play last year. Buyers market out there I got bills to pay and a custom on the way. One repaired ding on the deck from a wetsuit zipper (see pic).
500$ with 6.5"  true ames bonzer fin and canvas sock

Might regret this, but lately this board has not been getting much spin so I have to make room. This was my winter stick for a few years, surfed in everything 2' to 6 plus' / San Diego to Soup Bowls and very well taken care of, trusty keel fish.

5'10 x 21 x 2 15/16 but finely foiled with a fair amount of rocker.
Gloss polish - the works, fairly heavy glass job, so great winter board for howling offshores, winter chub, or small wave magnet.
Fins by Clowes, and in 10/10 condition.
Leash Loop 10/10 solid not cracked
Overall board is an 8/10 has that one dent near nose from the board hitting a fence when loading into car. It's watertight - $420 takes it. FIRM price.
PM and I can text more images.
Board is in Brooklyn.

I love my fish that Joe Falcone made me. It's a traditional San Diego style keel yet mine with a bit less foam in the nose. Feels pretty much perfect for our steep beachies, good for everything 2'- OH

He related to John Jay by any chance?

You've probably seen it in LB, NJ, RI, MTK- very reliable and gets around. Fit the quiv in the back and still have room to change inside in the winter. Just enough room for a 9'6, back doors to doghouse. I got a new short body van project to start so I'd like this to find a good home. Inside is fully built out, floors, racks, shelves for fins. Has hammock hookup and curtains for getting creepy. Runs great, but could use some body work (if you actually care!)
Text me VIA craigslist or message me on here and reply with your phone for a faster response.
Thanks for looking.

my legs are tired...can't remember the last time I said that

Fortunately surfing is not skateboarding. It's not a stagnate playing field, waves and spots change on the frequent. Have not been out to Gilgo in a few years, but I did always like how you can't see a house or about anything man made while in the water.


I think everyone's qualm is paying 900$ for something made on the other side of the world by non surfers. Most Xcel wetties are made in Thailand as well.
The outline is nice, and it sure helps to have photo's like this published:

Worry not you won't be doing that anytime soon  ;D

Mike Hynson's book is incredibly entertaining....
Impossible to find in print, but I bought it on Nook, or kindle one of those for the ipad for 99c

Pretty wild the life that guy lead, Robert August he was not!

Jersey was pumping. Saw a fin in the water twice 30 feet out the back and couldn't let myself give a brown trout and kept surfing. Turns out it was just a harbor porpoise pod.  ;)  Haven't felt push like that since March
