Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’ve got another sleek stick that was posted to Craigslist. This Choice Surfboards Rich Pavel quad didn’t last very long before it was snatched up. According to the original listing, the measurements are 5’8″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ (or 2 5/16″; the seller didn’t remember which.)
Yes, it’s a rad board, but as always, nothing but love for the Craigslist sellers who take great photos. The pics don’t just give you a great idea of the board and its condition, but they look great, too.
I guess it’s also easier to take great pics when you’re working with the right subject, and this Choice Surfboards quad definitely fits the bill. The seller says the board is hand shaped by Rich Pavel, and it is based on his Speed Dialer model, but with a more pulled in nose and tail.
And my God, that glass job is something else. Perfect logo placement and details — the Greenroom Surfboards laminate is always a favorite — and that wedge stringer is so cool, too.
Last but not least, you can see Pavel’s signature heart in pencil on the bottom between the fins.
