Will u take 500 ?
Also if the " shaped by hand than holyer guys " are concerned about machines boards . Just remind them that Tyler hazakian is now pumping out planks on a CNC machine sweet boys .
LOL. Hey I sent you a PM not sure if you got it or not but if so PM me back
Where are you?/Board?
I get that this isn't some local shaper, but still. 1100 is crazy. Serious question, what were you thinking?
I got to agree with DP, you can get a brand new board for 200 bucks cheaper than your selling a used board. I'd take the 600 the shop is offering. But they will probably end up ripping of someone who dosn't know any better. I say that only because I assume they would sell it for more than 600 so there making money. I don't know though I never sold boards to a shop.
I once bought a really cool board off a guy. A bonzer. From this forum. Not going to get into the whole story, but I got a sweet price and the dude inspired me. I'd rather my board I'm selling get some one stoked and go to a good home than to just get some money back for it. I know that's not what you are doing or want to hear but I thought I'd just throw it out there. Board karma
I'm north of Boston
Getting past what you paid for it....are you the size of Andre the Giant and/or do you surf Jaws on this bad boy? You could seriously use that as a SUP or fishing vessel! I'm curious what type of conditions you take it out in and can you really do a turn on this "shortboard"?
Sent you a PM not too tech savvy hopefully you received. Thanks
Sent you an email with my contact info.
Ive never gotten more than $300 on a trade and that was for a board that i bought at the shop 2 days earlier and rode once. Proctor is a weird looking dude.
Are you a masshole???
That is probably gym strong! I thought Boston was all yuppies living in super expansive places with quasi blue collar "roots"..though even those blue collar jobs pay up there like no place in US. No wonder you swung that 1100 no problemo.
Just kidding, nice board, free bump and if someone is giving you 600 on trade, I'd take that before you break a sweat milking that additional $100 (chump change).
Well actually Im North of Boston so I dont get caught up in all the yuppie downtown stuff, although I doubt anyone in Southie or Eastie would consider themselves "yuppies" and you may not wanna tell them they are anyways... LOL! I actually have someone on here that maybe interested in buying the board so I am holding out on him. I told him that I would sell it to him for the same price the shop is willing to give me for a trade..(600) I figure its only right to charge someone on this site the same as what I can get it at the shop for who only is gonna make money off of it charging more than that to someone... so the if he doesnt want it, I will sell it to anyone else on this board for $600.
Good on you, seems more reasonable now
OK so as I explain in the posts I have an option to trade this board into a shop for 600 towards a new board..since the shop will only be making money off someone else I am willing to sell it on here for the same price I can get for the trade in. CANT BE ANY FAIRER THAN THAT!! There is a member who is interested in the board for this price so I am giving him first right of refusal. If you are interested in getting the board for the new price PM me and Ill put you in line.
$600 NEW PRICE!
If he did hand shape it himself, you can tell what he expects "per hour" of his time in the bay by the $1,100 price tag on the board in question.
Yes... CNC machines can reproduce a shape more accurately than most house shapers. But when it comes to the "what's better" argument - hand shaped vs machine shaped... what's the difference between a ghost shaper who shapes by hand and a CNC machine? In most cases, the Name on the Label only touches the 99% finished product to check it and sign it, whether it comes from a machine or another employee.
IMO... (1) If you're gonna buy a big name brand board off the rack, you shouldn't care whether or not it's hand shaped. (2) If you're gonna buy a "custom" from a big name brand, you should probably want a machined blank because the Name on the Label guy is tweaking a file that already exists... the end product will be exactly what you asked for, with no chance of an error that might happen if adjustments are made by hand in the shaping room. And, as you can tell from this post, you're gonna pay out the wah-zoo for the time and sweat he puts into that process if he indeed does shape the thing by by hand start to finish.
Custom boards should command a higher price. Buyers should be willing to pay for the added time it takes to produce a quality product, and customize down to the tiniest detail. The difference between Todd Proctor and a talented, skilled, proven, reputable local shaper, when it comes right down to it... is about $300.
