Bob Mitsven Thruster

Are you ready to do some more Dumpster Divin’ with your old buds from Shred Sledz? Sure you are!

Available in San Diego, via Craigslist, is this 7′ Mitsven thruster.

It’s a mere $65. The poster claims there are no dings on the board, but it’s kind of hard to tell with that bizarre whitewash paint job on the bottom. I feel like you could easily strip the paint. It looks like it’s sitting on top of the fiberglass.

The logos make me think this is an older Mitsven, via the always-helpful Stoked N Board. Nowadays you can find Bob Mitsven’s shapes at Mollusk, but they tend to focus on his eggs, and the logos look more modernized. This board might be less popular, given it looks to be a kind of step-up or some sort of mini gun, but hey – a watertight surfboard for $65 is generally a pretty good deal. Mitsven, of course, is an extremely well-regarded San Diego shaper. You can read more about him here.
