Zuma Jay Single Fin

Up for grabs on Craigslist in Ventura CA is a Zuma Jay single fin for $100. Warning: there could be a decent amount of repair involved in this one. The duct tape on the tail is never a good sign, and it looks like the bottom has a bunch of little dings or discoloration….

Ben Aipa for Kimo’s Surf Hut

File this guy under things I have never seen before… This is a 9′ Ben Aipa-shaped longboard with a logo from Kimo’s Surf Hut. The Aipa signature is definitely consistent with other signatures I have seen from genuine Aipa boards. I have never heard of Kimo’s Surf Hut before, but it looks like…

Aleutian Juice

Earlier today I was perusing some pictures of boards with channels, and I started thinking about how Shred Sledz has yet to feature anything from legendary Central Coast (CA) shaper Dave Parmenter. Parmenter is a former tour competitor and So Cal competitive surf rat who has gracefully transitioned into a career as one…

Simon Anderson for Energy Surfboards

Check out this vintage Simon Anderson single fin on eBay Australia! Simon Anderson’s claim to shaping fame is the fact he invented the thruster, the first tri-fin surfboard design that stands as one of the most influential shapes in surfboard history. 35 years ago the thruster ushered in the modern shortboard era, and…

Mike Diffenderfer Gun

There’s a sweet Mike Diffenderfer gun up for sale on eBay, which you can find here. By now my affinity for neon paint jobs is well-documented, but let me just say I love the way this board looks. Diffenderfer, of course, is a legendary surfboard shaper. I suggest reading up on his entry…

Neon Becker

Craigslist Steal of the Week! Check this thing out…a 7′5″ Becker funshape for a mere $75. Full dims are 7’5″ x 21.25″ x 2.375″. Looks water tight, and I dig the triple stringer as well as the shameless late 80s / early 90s neon logo. Pretty difficult to say whether or not it’s…

Mandala

File this one under reasonable price for a dope board. I try to highlight steals and deals here, but sometimes you just have to pay full freight. Available on Craigslist in San Diego is an 8′10″ Mandala Seraph. The Seraph is a tri plane hull design with a pintail. As you have probably…

Andreini via McTavish

It’s a day ending in ‘y’, so it must be time to celebrate the legend that is Marc Andreini at Shred Sledz HQ. I came across this sweet-looking vehicle, which can be found on Craigslist in Los Angeles. The poster describes it as a “McVee” shape, which I have never seen before from Andreini. I’m…

Dick Brewer Single Fin

Dick Brewer is a legend. Full stop, do not pass go, do not collect $200. But his name, sadly, has been licensed out to death, and considering just how famous Brewer is, it’s not always super easy to find real deal boards that have been shaped by the master. I found this listing…
