Adventure sports are out, babies are in…. Well not entirely, i’m definitely not getting rid of my surfboards anytime soon, but i do have a baby on the way (ok my partner does) and we need to make space and cash for prams and all the other crap that comes with new babies.
So, i’m selling a few things that have been hanging around in the garage gathering dust, and they all vaguely relate to my surfing life so i thought it was worth a blog on the soul-surfing website!
The mountain board is a lot of fun, and it got lots of use several summers ago when we had no waves for ages and i needed to have ‘that feeling’. Unfortunately i dont have the time these days and i’m also getting a bit old to shrug off the inevitable bruises that come with having something thats so much fun to play with. The tiki bag has made one surf trip to North Devon, and i’ve since traded in the board that lived in it, so the bag is no longer required, but i could do with having a slightly bigger bag for my 7’6″ mini-mal, so will part-ex if that is offered.
These are all listed on wightbay too, so follow the links if you want to get in touch that way, otherwise just email me via firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on this blog.
****UPDATE 02/11/2010 ALL SOLD*****
All sold now via ebay within a week, after no interest from wightbay, pretty much the same story every time i sell stuff really, shame, i’ve brought things on wightbay often, but it just seems to be so slow these days.
Scrub Mountain Board (MTB) – Furnace Creek SOLD Quality manufacturer Mountain/Kiteboard by Scrub (with leash). This is an excellent quality make mountain board, thats now in very used condition thats been abandoned in my garage un-used for a few years. As you would expect from a used board there is some cosmetic damage consisting of the odd scuff, scrape and chip. The truck springs and toe binding post bolts have rusted and they will require new bolts/nuts. The tyres have good tread, but one of them doesn’t hold pressure for very long (lasted long enough for a days riding last time i used it tho), so a new inner tube maybe required.
So to sum up, a once excellent quality board that requires attention to get it fully functioning again, but when new the board was about £200, so its a bargain at £40.
