Weekend Grab Bag: MTB & More

Greetings, Shredderz! Welcome to another installment of the Weekend Grab Bag. Keep scrolling for a selection of sticks that are currently listed for sale somewhere across the World Wide Web.

Eighties MTB Thruster (eBay)

I’ve been on a bit of an MTB kick lately (more on that later). Here’s a classic Eighties MTB thruster that’s listed for sale on eBay.

The Eighties MTB boards are completely over the top…and I’m there for every last second of it. This board comes with no less than ten laminates (and that’s not even counting the Clark Foam one), just in case you’re afflicted with temporary amnesia out in the lineup. The bidding is up to $431 and the auction closes in two hours, so get cracking if you’re looking to snap it up.

I’ve been on a bit of an MTB kick as of late. See below for a Donald Takayama-shaped MTB from the Seventies.

McCoy Lazor Zap (eBay)

Here’s a sweet McCoy Lazor Zap. Sadly, it doesn’t come with the fin that’s pictured. I can never quite get over the outline of this board and how heavy it is in the hips. But hey, I’m much better at writing about surfboards than I am at riding them.

Carl Ekstrom Asymmetrical Model (Craigslist San Luis Obispo)

Here’s a sweet San Diego gem lurking on Craigslist. Sadly, the board is need of a serious amount of work. Nonetheless, I’m always on the prowl for Ekstrom’s shapes. Here’s a video of Richard Kenvin, the surfer behind Hydrodynamica, surfing a Carl Ekstrom asymmetrical long fish. Ekstrom’s long fish was in turn inspired by a 6’9″ Skip Frye long fish. Cool stuff.
