Grab Bag: October’s Very Own

Greetings, Shredderz! Today we have another installment of the not-quite famous Grab Bag, where we highlight a selection of boards currently for sale on the internet. Act quick because some of these deals go fast.

Rick Mid Length Hull (Craigslist – Ventura)

Rick Surfboards Mid Length Hull.jpgRemarkably, this bad boy is only $350. I’m shocked that it has lasted this long. The fin box could be dicey and there’s also what looks to be an old repair on the tail, but I think this thing is so sweet. I’m wondering if it’s shaped by Phil Becker, but it’s impossible to tell from the pics. I believe this is being sold by Eric at ChubbySurf.com.

Weber Single Fin (eBay)

Carl Ekstrom Sixties Log (Craigslist – San Diego)

Carl Ekstrom Longboard.jpgIs this considered cheating, considering I featured this board on my Instagram the other day? Either way, I can’t help but admire this bad boy. I’ve quietly been geeking out on Ekstrom’s boards for a bit now. He seems like he was way ahead of his time on certain designs, such as the asymmetrical tails that are now being popularized by the likes of fellow San Diego foam mower Ryan Burch. Richard Kenvin of Hydrodynamica fame has also expressed admiration for Ekstrom’s designs. The board is listed at $1,400, which isn’t cheap, but it’s not easy to find fifty year old boards in great shape.

Hawk Single Fin (Cragislist – Orange County)

Hawk Single Fin.jpgAccording to the seller this was a Sam Hawk shape. I can’t recall whether or not Chris Hawk also shaped boards under this label. I think it’s overpriced at $400 considering the condition, but I still dig the board. It also comes with an absolutely killer fin that probably makes up a good $100 – $150 of the overall cost.
