Anyone know of some shops in NJ that have a good selection of used boards for reasonable prices? I know a lot of shops tend to mark up their used boards but Ive come across some good deals in the past. Just looking for some new places to check out since my regular shops dont have much of a selection currently.
Also, I know you can usually trade in a board of yours when you buy a new one from a shop but do most places take a trade in even if youre buying another used board?
Im trying to diversify my quiver a little more and get rid of one of my shortboards and try out a fish or something new so any suggestions of where to look would be sick.
check out wavejammer in Lavallette. Usually not a huge selection but they keep their website up to date with used boards in stock so it's easy to keep an eye on it if your looking for something particular. http://www.wavejammer.com/surf/fsurf.htm
What u looking for Woody's In Rio Grande, NJ has a wide selection of new and used ,Long to Short ??
I know there are 2 used logs there now a cpl fun boards and short board rangeing in size from 5'8 to 6'9
Let me know what your looking for I can check the racks when I go in Friday
NJSwell please don't listen to this. I don't know if matt Johnson is boys with the owner of woody's or something, but when ever i'm there it reminds me of a zumies. It's overpriced, very, very, little selection, and its in god awful rio grande. I'd rather go to Pete Smiths, and they haven't gotten anything new in that store since 1995. Matt, your an asset to this forum and bring some good insight, especially your thoughts on hyperflex wetsuits and how sick of a session you just had at stockten st or ocnj, but woodys kinda blows man, sorry.
That being said, buying a used board is 25%skill, 30% emotion, and 100% luck. you really have to just be at the right place at the right time. That being said, i've had best experiences with 7th street, surfers supplies, and sun catcher. heritages options are usually overpriced and half decayed. But just look around and you may get lucky. 2 summers ago i bought a brand new 5'10 UM pro model from 7th st for $250 because UM is a dead company (now 21-13 surfboards), and did a trade in also and paid 70 bucks for the thing. was surely stoked.
