Con Longboard

When it rains, it pours, and lately we’ve been seeing some Con Surfboards falling from the sky in copious amounts.

Today brings you the next installment in Shred Sledz’s Pulitzer Prize-winning series, Dumpster Diving!

Check out this vintage Con log on Craigslist that can be found in wave-starved Fresno, California. For those of you unfamiliar with Dumpster Diving, the Peabody Award-winning series focuses on old surfboards in desperate need of some TLC, that can also be had for $100 or less.

This bad boy clocks in at $70, but shit, it’s definitely a project. Posting this thing just makes me wince. The silver lining of this surfboard’s troubled upbringing is that it can now be had for dirt cheap. It’s a restoration project, or maybe it oculd just be a beater if there isn’t too much else wrong with it, but either way you’re not going to be winning any beauty pageants quite yet.

Still, it’s $70 for a legit older Con board, and hey, you’ve got to compromise somewhere at that price. (I wrote about Con earlier this week, and you can see my detailed writeup on the Con Competition Wing Nose model here.)

Check out this bad boy here. And until next time, I hope you have enjoyed this installment of Dumpster Diving, a Shred Sledz Production, and a recent recipient of Columbia Journalism School’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
