    bz bodyboard with surf fins

    Hey everyone, first time on the site and I really have been trying to find some info on this bz body board I have. I got it many Years back at Ron jons in LBI, and I have never ever seen another one like it. I will post some pics, but it has fins on it, and I have been able to find no info anywhere on it, not even a slight mention of any thing like it. So if any of you fine people here could help me out with some info, and hopefully maybe even a value, as I really hope to sell it as I have only used it once ever before, I would so greatly appreciate it. Thanks a bunch. IMG_20140627_215440295.jpgIMG_20140627_215455393.jpgIMG_20140627_215512301.jpg

    This article has differrent bodyboards from different time periods including some with fins from the 80s. From what I've heard/what I understand, finned bodyboards actually handle quite well?

    Can't do 360's with skegs. They make the board faster since you don't waste energy digging in a rail. They've fallen out of style since people want to do aerials and such. BZ is a crap brand kept alive by the fact that they sponsor the insanely talented Hubb. The stars on the deck are pretty retro or maybe just gay. I'd give you $10 for it. It might be "worth" up to $150 depending on the construction.

    Does that say "KM" on it maybe? I'm thinking it might be a Kyle Maligro model, did he ever ride for BZ? I know he got into using fins for dropknee, like this:

    The fin system on it looks pretty slick, the way they are so far forward reminds me of a modern kneeboard, I imagine it's for dropknee. Pretty cool board, I've never seen one like that before.

    Pretty neat, from a historical perspective...saw a guy out last year on an old Morey Mach 20, the one w/ retractable skegs, shoulda taken a spin on it.

    sbx, I've seen those vektor fins and they'e pretty neat, different shape and asymmetrical placement on the board.

    Got skunked today, half a foot with one foot sets, but had some fun bodysurfing and swimming around. Water and day was f'n beautiful. I rode a few waves underwater, all baked

    Thanks for all the replys, and yes that one board definitely seems to be the exact same one as mine just a different color. Would anybody have an estimate of value or does up to about $150 seem to sound about right?

    Really appreciate all the quick responses, learned more about the board in a day then for the 12 years it has been sitting in my closet. I feel bad that I made my mom waste the money on that board all those years ago. I'm only 24 now and I never have been into body boarding that seriously but back when I was about 12 or so and was in Ron jons, I saw it and said I thought it looked cool, and my mom asked do I want it? And of course at that age I said yes without even a thought. Definitely something that should have never been purchased, I think it was around $300-$350, to this day I'm still surprised my mom offered to buy it at that price.
