Pages: 1 2 [3] 4 5 6
I picked up a used board last week with plastic future fins.  Don't have a real reason why, I just don't like em. 
Anyone have a fiberglass thruster set laying around they want to unload?  Not in the loop with shortboard fins, just looking for a basic set.  If it matters, I'm around 170 lbs and the board is a 6'10" rounded pin.  I plan to use it for bigger waves and/or a travel board. 

It is the yellow and green swirl one.  Great condition. Other comets are not for sale.  Board is in Wall, NJ.  Cash and carry, no surfboard trades.  Will only take 30/31 Model A parts as trades.


Some of the boards in the photo link have already sold.  I am getting money together to build a hot rod.  time to unload boards.  Everything is in Wall, NJ.  Come and get it, bring cash.

bunch of fins     
also, 1968 VW Squareback with tons of extra parts including rebuilt longblock that needs to be installed  $4k obo.  Need the garage space for the new ride.

Traded this board in the spring and have an extreme case of seller's remorse and want it back.  It is a yellow label 9'2" cooperdesign malibu foil pintail in clear.  The board was sold after I traded it and I hope it is still in the area.  If you know who has the board, give them my info.  I will trade board(s) or $$ to get it back.  If I can't track it down, I can always order another, but prefer my old one back.  Was minty mint when it left my hands.

I want to get trip plans lined up and ready to go.  Since it is completely flat, what else do we have to do.
Within 5 hr non-stop flight (i dont like sitting still)
Right hand lined up waves, preferrably head high plus with a barrell section (i don't like lefts)
Safe for my wife to sit on the beach by herself and read a book. (i don't like to read)
4 day weekend trip (don't like to be away from the little kids too long, they aren't invited on this trip)
Need about a weeks notice to pull the trigger and arrange for grandparents to watch the kids.
Any recommendations?  Everything I think of has me in the carribean because of my limited ability to sit still on a plane.  PR, seems like the easy choice, but i've done it a few times.  DR? California? El Salvador (pushing my flight time limit)

9’4” Hansen Stock – Orange $475

Stock Hansen shape with original glassed on speed fin.  Denser foam so board has weight.  Original orange pigment with clear slip check sprayed on nose and tail.  Hansen painted on bottom back in the day.  Some dings repaired professionally, but the character of the board was maintained.  The white pigment on both sides of fin were redone as well.

9'2" Anderson Dane Peterson diamond tail - SOLD!!!! Thinned out, diamond tail, nose concave, red tint bottom and rails, blue tiger stripe deck lengthwise.  It is now called the “diamond tail” model.  Some stress cracks in the gloss coat in front of the fin box. 

9’6ish Weber Feather Stringerless, floral nose $1750

Weber Feather - L=9'6"  N=18"  W=23.5"  T=16"  5" square tail

8’4” skip frye single fin - SOLD
Rare underground unlimited lam, signed with signature and wings on bottom.  Super thinned out tail, volume forward in the board with a little bit of belly.  Might be considered hullish, but I still don’t know what a hull is.



9’6” Cooperfish Hornet SOLD
Original early cooperfish hornet.  Clear, thinned out, bumps and bruises, but all dings watertight ready to go.  Concave nose, slight step deck nose and tail, glassed on hornet fin. 

I have an idea and want to talk to a patent attorney about it.  First meeting on the cheap, dinner and drinks on me.  If it is worthwhile pursuing a patent, I will pay the fancy fees.
I am an engineer, so drawings and techncial data is easy breezy.  I just want to get my hat in the ring and then can start marketing my idea to investors.  Very simple idea, so I am not even sure it is patentable (if that is a word).
