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.

second the comments on Suncatcher..total ripoff artists. I was in there last year and they were trying to sell the rich kid a CI that was about 75% delamed for 400 bucks!!! I told the kids parents right in front of the clerk to shop elsewhere because he was getting ripped off.
OP--I have a friend who has a very nice Ashton 6 0 roundnose fish he is selling. It's modeled after a Lost RNF and works killer in our summer surf.

Thanks for all the responses, I'm gonna do some shop hunting this weekend and see if I can dig up any deals.
I already have a RNF type board, its 6' and since I'm only 5'8", 140lbs its a little big. I still use it a lot since it works better than any of my other boards in the weak summer mush but I cant really get my stance right in the sweet spot since I'm too short for it. I end up having to shuffle a little forward to get through the flat sections and then shuffle back to get some turns in.
I think I'm really looking for more of a retro fish/biscuit/pod type board. Something real short and wide and thick. I've never ridden anything like that but I figure for my size something like 5'4"-5'8" x 20"-21" x 2 1/4"-2 3/4" should work well.
Well see what I can find!
