Yeah I'm totally thru with buying new boards. Last new board I got was about five years ago. A custom eight foot winter gun off RichQ. No regrets there. It was worth every cent.

But since then, I've pretty much broken even on buying and selling boards off gumtree and I've saved myself thousands of dollars and regrets. It's a gold mine at times.

Yep. I tried selling a board on Gumtree a few years ago.....no luck. My son put it on E Bay and we sold it for about $150 more than I was offering it for on Gumtree.
Got one board for under $300 in fairly good condition that would have had $1000 in front of that if it was new.

That Pure board of yours looks nuts. Got any rocker shots lying around?
I troll thru gumtree most days.

Here's the RichQ gun.

Found out that Tiki board is in fact a UK board. Shaped in North Devon. By Tim Heyland, who's been shaping since 1963.

like the bottom contours, I would call that a spiral vee out the tail.
tail looks pretty chubby for me but I imagine you are pretty good at heaving down on your back foot in cutbacks Iggs.

can't help thinking that board would go better as a bonzer or with side bites.

more base, more drive.

I thought the same thing to be fair. But I want to leave it as is. Pure and unadulterated as a single fin.

It's a beautiful looking board in the flesh.
