    Hey SD swellinfomaniacs,
    I'm heading out to San Diego for a quick 5 day work and play trip. I'm considering bringing my board, but just for the hell of it figured I'd throw this post out there seeing if anyone has a decent board I could hook up with while I'm there. Ideally, I'd like a longboard, but can surf most anything. Planning on a few dawn patrols and at least 2 full days at the beach. I am happy to pay in beers, some cash, stories, etc... I'd also totally do the same if you ever wanted to borrow a board on your next surf trip to Boston. :)
    Peace and mahalos

    I have a 5'10 fish or 6'1 shorty

    Both aren't the greatest shape, but water tight.

    O wait…. you're from boston - never mind ;)

    I rented a board in San Diego once a couple of years ago.

    That board looks like something that would squirt out whale jizz!!
    Ask Doug- he is the SI expert on such matters.

    Dude, just buy a used board from a shop or CL, whatever. Sell it back to a shop as consignment or have a friend sell it on CL for you once you leave. Or bring it home if you like it. I've done this again and again. Cheaper than renting and you get a board you want. Boards are cheap in CA.

    I forgot, the Clairemont Surf shop on Balboa ave (Just outside of PB) does demos. They have a good variety of boards. You just need to leave a credit card, but i think it's free...

    hahah, that's a good idea too!
    If you can find something that is rare back on the east coast you can bring it back and sell if you don't want to sell to a shop. I've done this too, and broken even or even made a small profit even after airline fees.
