Ive got the bug to try a 17ft board just for the heck of it. I suspect there are old boards out there that are no longer competitive, and possibly rough that are hard to sell, especially as beginners aren't looking to that size. I would have to be able to pick it up because transport would be a killer so somewhere from Port Maquarie to Canberra to Nowra, including Sydney. I'm thinking around 500 dollars but would go a little higher for a special board. Only major turn off would be a very heavy wet board or delamination, but would consider them if the price was around 200.
Before you say I'm crazy, I have had old 14ft boards listed for months at sub 500 without takers despite being in good condition, just really out of date. So hopefully this is an opportunity for someone to move their old 17 ft Glide or sic or similar.
Prefer seabreeze email contact. I check it regularly.
