    HELP, I need a board!

    Hey ya'll,

    Just moved to NC in August and have been looking forward to the Spring surf since then. I was wondering if anyone knows where I could pick up a decent second hand board (preferably something longer, 7.5 to 9.0, as I'm a big dude: 6'3", 200). I live in Durham, so if there's anyone out there in the triangle lookin to sell a board, that'd be great. Otherwise I'd be willing to start some talks online as well.

    Hope to hear something soon!

    By the way, when does the surf usually come up? In hurricane season?? Any info would be much appreciated!

    Mahalo,

    i know u said second hand but i'm not necessarily sure still what ur price range is. i duno much about long boards but if you live near any surf shops just head in there and they'll probably give u answers a lot faster than these forums will. most shops have a used board selection an everything.
    the surf usually picks up in the winter. you get a lot of big choppier swells in the winter. however, during hurricane season and more in the summer swells are much less frequent, but they come with glass so thats always a good thing. in my opinion though i'd say the best surf in NC where i live would be in the winter

    I publish a surf magazine in North Carolina. Send me your snail mail (mailing Address) and I can get you dialed into whats going on in the NC surf scene.
    Plenty of great surf shops with locally shaped boards. They will get you on the right board, for a great price. Better come soon, used longboards don't last long around here.

    Most surf shops in southern NC carry a wide variety of boards, and usually have one local shaper per shop. You can contact the shop or the shaper and have a custom board made. Talking to the shaper is your best bet. That way they can put the right board under your feet. Believe me they know what they are doing.

    Mahalo,



    Bro..Ive got you. Im not from NC but Im from Myrtle Beach. My father bought a board this pasted summer and is now looking to get rid of it. It is in excellent shape, never been broken, and only has a few pressure dings. It is a 7' 5 or 6, im telling you man, it is in great shape and i would be willing to give you a great deal, only 250.00. I am actually going to be in NC this Sunday to snowboard but maybe we could meet up. If youll give me your email address ill send you a pic of the board.
