Hey y'all, I may be looking to buy a used 9' longboard that has had flex damage across the middle, which has been repaired. The damage did not extend to the bottom, it's only on top that the bandage (my wording) is seen. Brand new, it retails for $700. I'm a new surfer, only looking at used boards, which I intend to learn to cruise on here on the east coast, so it's not like I'll be bashing it around out there. Any thoughts, questions? Thanks for your time.
