This board is great. I have too many boards and want to get rid of a few. This board would be a great gift for the holidays. As veteran surfer I can say this board has a lot of drive but also turns like a dime on the rail. It would be nice for a young guy starting out. Sharp Eye has great glass-jobs. This could take a beating for someone who is a little inexperienced. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BOARD THIS CHEAP IN A SHOP! I would put it in a surfshop to sell but I want to sell it fast. Had a ding on the nose and tail from its last trip from the airport. They have been repaired and just need to be sanded down a bit. If you are looking to pick up a good reliable board whether you are a beginner who wants something they can trust, or a ripper who wants something for their needs, this board is for you! Please respond by emailing me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I am willing to drive to meet someone interested in this.
