Diamond Tails, Rainbow Sprays and Star System Fins

Greetings, Shredderz! Welcome to another installment of the Weekend Grab Bag. For those who have better things to do with their lives than stay glued to a low budget surfboard blog, Grab Bag rules stipulate that every board below is listed for sale online as of publishing time. And for those who don’t have better things to do than read Shred Sledz, first of all, I’m sorry to hear that; secondly, we’ve got a rad little lineup this weekend featuring two sweet diamond tail boards and a twin fin sandwiched between. Keep scrolling for the goods.

ET Diamond Tail Single Fin (Craigslist Long Beach)

ET Surfboards is a venerable LA based label. I’ve only featured one other ET Surfboards stick on this blog, way back in January 2019. For more history on ET Surfboards — named after founder Eddie Talbot — check out this article in the Easy Reader News. The listing for the board is pretty short on details, but dang, it looks sick. The outline looks so fun and the colors on this thing just pop. Sadly no dimensions are listed.

Craig Twin Fin (Craigslist San Diego)

Most of the Craig Surfboards examples I’ve seen look pretty cool, and this racy little twin fin is no exception. I don’t know anything about the label, and truth be told, I can’t really bring myself to go down another internet research rabbit hole this Sunday morning. So here’s a 6’3″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ Craig Surfboards twin fin with the old Gordon & Smith Star Systems fin boxes.

James Jones Tuberider (Craigslist Honolulu)

For more on James Jones, check out this great profile that recently ran in the Surfer’s Journal. The board you see above has Jones’ signature rainbow spray on the nose. I’m not sure how much — if at all — Jones shaped boards for other people (he’s apparently a real estate appraiser now, after forging a career as one of the big wave standouts on the North Shore), and this one bears his signature rainbow airbrush at the nose. The board is 6’10” x 18″ x 2 3/4″.
