Haven't seen it posted, but Bert's got a ton of content I haven't seen on his channel.  Even if you don't shortboard, make sure to check out all the latest Sunova tech on the surfboard segments.

General Discussion / H2outlet, anyone buy from them?
« on: September 04, 2017, 10:49:13 AM »
No phone number and address, always a red flag, but they have some believable deals on boards, some the same price as other online sites.  Anyone buy from these guys?

Sunova Surf, 9'5" x 32" x 4 3/4", 160l, XXX-Tec construction, in excellent, lightly ridden condition.  This a great all around board that does every thing well.  Like the Speeed, outstanding construction and good reviews.  No dings, dents or any defects, just some minor surface scratches and paddle scuff marks.  XXX-Tec is Sunova's premium Balsa construction vs the slightly heavier EcoTec2 construction of "The One".  The board weight is 20.15 lbs.  $1250, pick up San Diego.

Downwind and Racing / Huge changes for Bark in 2017
« on: November 18, 2016, 10:59:00 AM »
Check out the new Bark line up at:

A ton of boards are discontinued.  The classically shaped cutting bow Competitor, Contender, Dominator and Eliminator are gone!  Along with the Downwinders and the Excursion which have been morphed into the new narrow Expeditions.

The other big news, full carbon Vapors!

Are cutting bows dead?  Is it the end of an SUP era?  Fire sale upcoming.

Sunova 8'5" Speeed XXX Tec.  In excellent, barely ridden condition.  What can I add to the ton of reviews here on the Zone and Sea Breeze?  Not much.  No dings, dents or any other defects besides some minor surface scratches and paddle marks.  The Balsa XXX Tec construction is amazing and this board weights in at 17.38 lb.  RS Pro rail saver and stock fins are included.  $1300, pick up San Diego.

Gear Talk / Bark 2016 Pro Elite Construction
« on: October 09, 2016, 11:10:17 AM »
How has the 2016 Pro Elite construction held up?  I'm hoping with the new order at Surftech, Cobra has tightened up on the their manufacturing.  I like the looks of an old school Bark and a new school NSP.

I won't buy either if they are soft and denty, like the Barks of old.

Classifieds / Race Fins galore
« on: August 31, 2016, 06:58:12 PM »

SIC Flow Weed, 7.5".  Supposedly a good DW fin, but I found it too loose.  There's a small repaired chip in tip and I had to sand the fin near the base to fit a Starboard box.  The construction is a bit oddball, it's some kind of Poly plastic over a glass body.  Because of this I just Sharpie'd the green glass showing through after the fit and chip work.  The fin is functionally fine and it looks ok at first glance, but horrible close up.  Buy it if you're not picky.  $25.

FCS Eric Terrien 38si, 8.5".  One of the most popular races fins on the circuit.  I wouldn't sell it except I prefer the FCS II style.  A small repaired chip at the tip, but other then that, very clean, $80.

Futures Jamie Mitchell 40si, 9.25".  A quick turning BOP race pivot style fin.  Tried it once, it's like new, $55.

Futures California Downwind 43.5si, 9.5".  Another great all around fin.  My preferred Cali ocean fin.  9.5/10, $80.

Futures Keel Fin, 44.4si, 6.45".  A classic fin and a must have for glassy inland and flat waters.  The low draft is fast and great for the shallows.  Like new, $75.

Futures Byron Kurt, 43.2si, 9".  An all around ocean race dolphin fin.  Might have been a keeper, but I prefer the smaller, but similar Karen Wrenn.  9.5/10, $65.

FCS Fat Boy, 9".  Supposedly a great downwind fin.  I tried it once in a long board.  Like new, $30.

Fanatic Race, 26cm / 10.25".  If you're looking for stability and tracking, this is your fin.  G10 construction and a narrow foil for a quick feel.  This is a US Windsurf Box fin; aka Starboard, Naish, Fanatic, etc.  Do not get it if you have a standard longboard box.  9/10, $30.

All fins are standard US Fins Unlimited Bahne longboard box except the Fanatic.  All fins come with a cover except the ET and Fat Boy.  All shed seaweed except the Fat Boy.  Shipping is extra.  Pick up in San Diego or will ship USPS, USA only.

Wow!  Free Classifieds are back as of this week with a handful of postings.  I always found the Classifieds a great resource on equipment and used pricing.  Glad to see them back.

Check out this bad boy.  Love the F1 looks, but it's pretty twitchy in the vids.  How are they going to get this one past SUPAA...
