I saw your sunova for sale, good price! Too bad its way to big for me otherwise would've been keen.
the market here seems to be crap at the moment. I just sold my full Carbon ecs 9'0 with bag, leash and good quad fins for $900!

It's the same over here in the U.K.

I put my speeed up for sale on the local FB SUP & Surf pages, had a couple of calls but no-ones handed any cash over yet.

We're coming up to Autumn here, but have just had the most awesome sunny summer and you'd be right in thinking everyone is out on the water...
Sadly no-one is buying S/H..

I don't think this is specific to any brand. The SUP market seems to have saturated a bit, so it is harder to sell boards, new or second hand.

This said, you can still sell it if you lower the price a bit. I'd say the second-hand prices here in France have decreased by about 20%.

I like a road trip...
And I'd like a 12'6" PSH...
But a bit far to go, even for me.

Yup, so many good boards for sale at the moment. The best time to buy.

Over here there's bugger all good second hand boards on the market. A tonne of cheaper import boards, brand new models or people still wanting $1500+ for second hand naish etc

Just looking at the classifieds here, if I ever make it over to oz again I'll be bringing a few used boards back to Oahu for my quiver. Market here seems to be quite a bit tighter.

i've lowered prices so much on my 2nd hand boards that i'm almost giving them away. For example, i got just $400 for an almost brand new Sunova Schroom, and cannot sell a SupSports carbon board at any price (down to $300). I wouldn't say the used market is down 20%, I'd say it almost doesn't exist. all the more reason to be very careful about buying any board.

Have you ever even seen a single sunova board for sale on o'ahu? I saw one in the water that I guy brought over on vacation, and tried to buy it from him telling him why ship it back?

Cant get enough of them over here Gizzie. Remains our biggest selling performance SUP. Try selling when there isn't snow on the ground

I ordered mine from the mainland distributor, I also know a guy who bought one off of Jacy a while ago. There are a couple of shops that are listed as distributors on Sunova's page, but I don't think they have any stock on hand, they would just order for you.

Not sure the new market is going gangbusters at the moment either. A few retailers getting out over here.

True for pretty much all retail at the moment. Not just SUP. And it's going to get worse.
