    How much should I sell a Brand New 9' Robert August for?

    I won a longboard in a raffle about a year ago and it's beautiful board. Unfortunately, I am moving to the midwest, (my country calls) and I'm looking to sell it. I am going to post it on craigslist soon, but I was hoping y'all can help me price it. I heard it was bought for about 1200 but I know nothing about longboard prices. Pictures are attached, PM me if you're interested.

    well, i can tell you it didn't sell for 1200. we have these at the shop i work for & they go for around 850 or so. i would say you can reasonably ask between 600-750. any more than that & you're gonna turn people off; less than that & you're letting yourself get ripped off.
    be safe, & thank you for your service.

    Robert august was one of the guys in the endless summer. The original one. He is a shaper out of Cali. Has a shop, surf team, and sells wine. Looks like a real nice board. You can find it on Roberts website, just do a search and it will come up. Njsurfer42 hit the pricing on the nose. I would also assume at the shop price of 850 a fin and leash would also be included.

    If you're moving near any of the Great Lakes you might want to take it with you. You can definitely still surf, and the community out there has some of the most stoked and friendliest surfers you'll ever meet (been there and done it long before Step Into Liquid ever found their way to Lake Michigan).

    This board is perfect for the Great Lake conditions - for yourself, or for any Midwest surfer. I'm think a Robert August would be surprisingly easy to get rid of even in the Midwest.

    That's the "What I Ride" board...damn, i want that thing, but I don't have the dough for it. I passed by Robert August as we were pulling into a restaurant on the beach in Costa Rica in March. I wish we had have got their a half an hour early, would have been crazy having lunch with a legend.

    Love how it says 'Design by Robert August' and not 'Shaped by Robert August'.

    fins only. off topic, but the only boards that come w/ leashes are NSPs. dunno why everyone just assumes a leash &/or a pad will be thrown in.

    but like retzlaff said, if you're going to be near the great lakes, take the board w/ you. i've seen some great footage of the surf there & a board like this would be perfect.

    Wavejammer automatically throws in two bars of wax,fins and a leash;the only guy I know.
    seen him do the gay pad for like $20,too.
    Beach House uses the free leash negotiation method to avoid the hassle if you are an insulting,entitled,bro-deal prick.
    this board is ruined by the gay training wheels 'side bites.'
    otherwise it is nice and i'd keep it.
    a board this long should be a single fin.
    surprised it's not the usual robert august surftech i see.
    Robert August got the fame,but Hynson was great.
