I have a  10'3 ish Joe Blair gun, brand new.  If you dont find what you are loking for it will do the same job 8)

Its to big for me,  his boards surf way bigger.  I was riding a 9'8 in some outer reefs of maui, kaui and oahau.  Typical days where 20' @ 18-21 sec.  So who knows what that is in hawaiian face size, 4fuut? Hahaha. Anyways, it was almost to much board. 
Im 6'3 240

The 10'3 was for jaws or big days at todos, when i get back in shape ill probably have joe make me a 9'8 quad.

Finnaly after 100 days of searching I scored a very nice 12 ft PSH Gun !   Bright yellow in near perfect shape.
Awe the glide, the trim on small waves, something about long & lean that feels so good.  Of all the boards I have and have owned pushing 15 plus, the 12 footer is my secong favorite of all time.

It also has a magical quality of either clearing a lineup or just blending in !    Being old, ugly and talking to myself in the water helps as well.

Thanks to my friend in the Pismo area for parting with with this gem and making me a happy guy !   I will take better care of this one than I did the last one.   

Paddle on Gals & Gents !!!!!!!!!   

I guess this should be in the General section.

Those boards are so popular it seems like something that should be scanned and saved for people who want to cut one.

Since Blain has moved on to foils I wonder if he’d “open source” the design. I have a buddy who’s looking for a solid coastal cruiser and I can’t think of a better design.

Glad you found one. I need to keep a better eye on craigslist.

Blane Chambers might be heavy into foils now, but he did some collaboration work with Tom Carroll. Tom has  come out with a nice longboard named the Outer Reef. It comes in different lengths. These boards are a little wide in width though.

And there is a nice video for it too.

Blaine is still making custom boards, I'm sure you could get one made if you wanted.

That’s cool to know. I forgot about the Carroll stuff boards and good to know about customs. I only see manta on social media so I didn’t know if he was focued there or not. I love his stuff.
