Recent Al Merrick Hand Shaped Thruster

Shred Sledz usually likes to celebrate more off-beat surfboards, but there are always exceptions to the rules. This board, located in Haleiwa, Hawaii and posted on Craigslist, is a pretty standard step-up shape no doubt made in mind for the powerful surf of a North Shore winter. According to the poster, it was…

Donald Takayama for Buttons

Here at Shred Sledz HQ, we dream of finding rad vintage boards at equally rad prices. Sadly, not everyone shares in this dream – especially the second part. It’s a shame, because this board is super rad, but the price is a bit outrageous ($2,500!). It is a Donald Takayama surfboard shaped for Hawaiian…

Aipa Modified Sting for Town & Country

This marks the second time I’ve stumbled across a Ben Aipa-shaped T&C board. You can find my post on the first board here, and it looks like it was snapped up by Kristopher Tom, who runs thevintagesurfboard.com. The board that inspired today’s post doesn’t have a bitchin 80s airbrush, but oh well, nothing is perfect,…

Channel Islands Tri Plane Hull

As longtime Shred Sledz readers know by now, Channel Islands is a surfboard brand with a special place in my heart. Many moons ago, as a wide-eyed and bushy tailed grommet, I plunked down a fistful of dollars bills earned from an old-fashioned manual labor summer job and bought my first surfboard, an…

Bahne Single Fin

Sorry for the short-term hiatus, kids! I know that it has likely been a week of bleakness without Shred Sledz’ signature dosages of vintage surfboards, found in the hidden nooks and crannies of Craigslist, but fear not, for I am back and still frothing for some sweet vintage sticks. I am writing this…

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…

Con 70s Single Fin

Just who is this mysterious Jeff of Palms / West LA? Without fanfare he shows up on Craigslist and drops some vintage heat. Best of all, it is always at reasonable prices. Jeff doesn’t seem to be into the flashy shit, just some cool surfboards that harken back to a fondly remembered California…

Competition

File this one under gorgeous but expensive. Found on Craigslist in Long Island, New York (the boyhood and mostly wave-less home of Shred Sledz, I’d like to point out), is this beautiful 10′ Con Competition Wing Nose longboard. In my humble opinion, Con Surfboards has the sickest, cleanest, coolest logo of just about any surfboard manufacturer out…

Channin: Wings of Flight

Look, I get it – there are lots of reasons why you’d want to be a Shred Sledz reader. The paragraphs of incomparable prose, the community (AKA one dude sitting at his desk trawling the darkest corners of Craigslist until his eyes start bleeding), the babes…the list goes on and on. But when…

Lightning Bolt: Rory Russell

Obligatory Lightning Bolt post alert! It’s a rule, really: if I come across any decent-looking Lightning Bolts of non-sketchy provenance, onto Shred Sledz they go. I have my own quibbles with the iconic label, starting with the insane prices ($1,000 for this board), the murky pedigree of many boards (and the numerous ripoffs…
