    Any Harbour Riders out there?

    I picked up a used 10' Harbour Nineteen and I love it. The double volan glass gives it that extra speed to make sections quickly and the initial turns are quick and forgiving.
    Picked up a used Revover for my kid. Rich H. takes a rider's weight into consideration for his boards, and this makes sense to me. Anyone else?

    i'd disregard that size chart,though,as they're considering california,long waves,pointbreaks,longboard breaks,not what we surf around here.

    My cousin had The Banana Model a LONG time ago. I used it when he wasn't. Back then I was about 50 pounds lighter and it was my favorite ride. Somebody stole it right in front of his house. I'd like to get one someday if they still make it.

    9'7"-10'= $870
    10'1"-10'6"= $1075
    10'7"-11'= $1100
    That's w/o color.
    I think used is a good way to go and try new boards.
    That price is actually lower than most other companies for the same level of product.

    If you can get a used board in near mint condition for a few hundred less I would a good buy .

    If you are unsure about buying a Harbour you might wanna check out Bing's Site as well .

    For a 10 long board you can use a 10 to 11 inch fin . I flex drive fin will give you a very responsive turning while the wide base will give you the stabilty to walking the board and noseriding and has nice drive to get you down the line . this fin is a good all around fin. Your you can go the route of a 11 inch Pivot Fin which is a great fin for noseriding and smooth gliding turns. Pivot fin also has good drive but wave size is a factor

    It really depends on you taste and style of surfing. I have a bunch of fins and I experiment with them in all my boards

    Anyone else have weight as a factor or not when selecting a board?
