    A shop called Second Surf has a branch in Fish Hoek and in Table View, last time I checked they had some decent looking boards...

    Sheesh, Razor is offering THE deal! Unless the board is seriously warped, dog-chewed or was driven over by a Humvee full of overweight stand-ups (what IS it with these guys, why do they always need GIANT bakkies?), go for it and save your spare cash for second hand suit, fins etc (even the leash will set you back a cool 100). No ways the 2nd hand shops will compete with this price.

    Check the board out for the following: general damage, waterlogging, serious delamination, etc. Lay it, bottom down, on a flat surface - if the edges warp upwards but not noo much (the ideal for an experienced rider is flat, but for a beginner a bit of warp is useful), hey it's only R300! But if it warps downwards, i.e. the underside is hollow, spend a bit extra on a better board.

    Then there's the usual stuff about board size: the general rule is get the nose within 2 inches (roughly 5cm) of your belly button, above or below. But if you are overweight or built like a brick shithouse, your board size needs to accomodate for that. Don't worry about shape, i.e. bat tail etc, for two reasons: it's your first board, so it won't make a difference till you're more experienced anyway; and at R300, why be choosy!

    Hey dude.
    Emailed you.
    Board is in an okay condition.
    No delamination got slight elbow creases.
    Reason i'm selling is it has a nasty cut in it from a surfers fin.
    It was glued up with hot glue and should be good as new.
    Either way there is no contest between the MS1 and the reef boards you looking.
    Forgot to mention in the email it is a 42.5.

    Oh, also forgot Tom Robinson is a 41.5 - And it's not that I don't want the board! I just have a wad of unexpected bills and it's the only way out...
    Hi ho, hi ho - it's off to work I go!

  • February 2008

  • dcmike
    February 2008
    Haha! Marky! Nah, it was an exchange for some photography work I did but as you know, peanut butter and jam on a bodyboard sandwhich don't taste so lekker and leaves you lank bloated!
