I was going back through my Photobucket and seeing all of the boards I’ve sold that I haven’t reviewed yet. The thing that really struck me is that there are so many that I wished I would have kept, or would buy again if I wasn’t such a slave to passing fancies of different shapes and fin configs. It really makes me wish I had unlimited space to store and unlimited cash to buy surfboards. If anyone is interested in a more in depth review let me know.
The scariest thing about this is that this is only boards I’ve taken pictures of…. there have been others as well.
5-11 x 19 x 2.5 Cole Twin (MPT)
Fun board that was very HP for a twin. It worked way better for me with a trailer as it was too loose without. This is where I finally realized I’m just not a fan of twins
5-8 x 21 x 2.5 Rat single wing swallowtail
This board was kinda weird; I got it in a trade. It was really short and wide with blocky rails. I couldn’t find anything on Rat’s site to describe it so I think it was a custom. Due to the wing and tail I ran it as a twin + trailer but it might have been meant to be a thruster. It groveled pretty well but I wasn’t really a fan
5-11 x 20.5 x 2 9/16 Oak Foils Twinzer
The first of two Oaks I really should have never gotten rid of. I sold this off because I acquired another board with the same fin config that felt better under the arm and looked better aesthetically to me but I surfed way better on the Oak.
6-3 x 20 x 2.63 Bulkley double wing swallow tail quad
I got this for a really good deal and proceeded to ride it to death. Every time the waves got head high or larger I rode this. It was a couple years old when I got it and even after two years of my abuse I still sold it for more than I bought it for. I bet this board is still getting ridden
7-6 x ?? x ?? Oak Foils Dyna-glyde
I simply did not give this board a chance. I got rid of it after one session just because I felt like I was riding a fun board. I never tried it as single and I guarantee if I wouldn’t have been such a slave to fashion I would have loved it. I want to get another one of these soon; I just don’t know if I want a “mini” version or a midlength. I was an idiot for getting rid of this one.
6-2 x 19.75 x 2.5 Coil Widerboard
This was a sick board and was to be my good wave board. I didn’t want to get rid of this one at all but had some heavy unexpected bills to pay at that time.
5-6 x 19.5 x 2.5 Tomo MPH Nano
Looking back at how much I weighed then and those dims I’m astonished this board worked so well for me. It made me a believer in Daniel’s theories and tells me that I would ride an MPH or a NextGen even smaller than I think I should now. I’ll get another Tomo again someday
6-3 x 22 x 2.75 Stamps Hull
Besides the yellow Oak, this is the one board that pains me not to have anymore, sorry I don’t have any better pictures. I’m not even sure why I sold it. Idiot.
6-6 x ?? x ?? Bulkley stepup
I bought this for a winter that never came. This was my first winter down here and I soon realized I don’t need a mid 6′ board pretty much ever in North County. Maybe if I surfed Blacks more. It got sold to pay for the Hull above
