    I've painfully decided it's time to sell my classic In the Pink. Board is 9' 2" 23" x 3" This board was shaped in Oceanside by Tommy Maus and glassed by Wayne Hoshizaki. Board is about 6 years old and in very nice shape, a couple of pressure dings, couple of dings that have been repaired professionally. The resin job is a custom acid wash and one of a kind. This board is beautiful. I'm asking $1000 and not in a huge hurry to sell. PM me if interested. I'm selling it with original fins, not the Greenough that's on it in the pic.

    Does the acid wash bottom repel sharks?

    In a few years, you would regret selling that. You sell it now for 1k, 10 years hence it will 5k, possibly. The number of surfboard collectors is growing, putting upward pressure on future prices. Same with antique classic cars....

    Barry, I agree with you 100%. DT was a legend of a shaper. He's dead now...This is a key bit of info, and the same applies to other artists and their pieces of work. Dead artists'/shapers' signed boards are worth a lot of money now, and worth even more in the future.
