A Stunning Andreini Vaquero

Every once in a while, the Craigslist gods bless us with a killer board accompanied by pics that do it justice. Here’s a stunning 7’7″ Andreini Vaquero that was custom ordered from Marc back in 2019, and has sat in storage for the past five years. It’s currently listed for sale on Craigslist…

“Here Now: Past & Present” A Shred Sledz Film

Greetings, Shredderz! Today’s post is a special one. I’m thrilled to premiere “Here Now: Past & Present”, the first original Shred Sledz film. “Here Now” is an exploration of the evolution of Marc Andreini’s famous Vaquero model (initially called the 365). Marc was generous enough to lend his time and knowledge to the…

Vintage Vaquero: Marc Andreini Personal Surfboard

Greetings, Shredderz! When it comes to feel good stories, my personal favorite subgenre is “surfboards saved from the trash.” Believe it or not, this killer example of a vintage Andreini Vaquero model was headed to the dump before it was rescued. Even more incredibly, the person who found this board was none other…

70s Andreini Single Fin

Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’ve got a 70s single fin shaped by Marc Andreini. I’ve written up more than a few Andreini boards on the blog over the years, and he remains a favorite shaper of mine. In fact, it was one of Marc’s boards — a 9′ Serena that I still own —…

Lemon Lime Andreini Vaquero

Usually I post interesting boards or ones that I think are good deals. I don’t know that there’s anything super interesting about this Andreini on Craigslist other than the fact I simply love his boards. It’s a 7′9″ Vaquero, apparently custom shaped, with a fuller nose (not so sure that I see this…

Marc Andreini Bonzer: Alternative Tri-Fin

Another cool Andreini up on Craigslist! This is a 6′10″ Andreini Bonzer shape. Bonzers can come in a wide variety of setups, but as you can see in the pictures above, this board has two side bites complemented by a large fin in the center. The fin setup is unusual for Andreini, whose…

Andreini Camo Vaquero

I can’t believe this Andreini has been languishing on Craigslist for a few weeks now. It’s a 9′ Vaquero model, which is a little longer than usual, given that most Vaqueros are in the mid-length range. Still, it’s such a cool board, and it even sports Andreini’s signature anti-shark camouflage pattern on the…

Andreini Pig

Reasonable deal on an Andreini on Craigslist. $700 gets you an Andreini Pig model noserider. According to the listing there are no dings on the board and the dimensions are 9′5″ x 18″ x  23″ x 17″. It’s got a nice tapered wood stringer, and I personally love the White Owl branding, which Andreini…
