12'6 Riviera - $475
« on: October 29, 2018, 10:49:15 AM »
Hi, selling my board because I bought a new Starboard. The board is made by Riviera and shaped by Ron House. It has a bamboo core. I purchased this as a demo board for $1500 from Riviera in 2012. Its a great flat water cruising board - very stable, nice glide, quiet, decent speed, no rocker. It has the following wear & tear (all shown in the pics):

* Typical paddle scuffs on the rails

* Two (2) tiny bumps in the exterior on the bottom. I'm guessing due to excess heat from direct sunlight. The bumps are exactly the same as they were when I bought it.

* Small ding that I repaired several years ago with a board repair kit, then subsequently tapped over to make it bomb proof.

I live in Southern NH and prefer not to ship.

How come I don't see it on NH Craigslist? That should be the first place you advertise. I've sold 3 or 4 boards there over the years.  It should sell pretty quick at that price.

Which Starboard model did you get? Was it new from Cinnamon Rainbows?

Thanks for the tip, I'll give Craigslist a shot then!

I went with a 14'x24.5" Allstar hybrid. I got a 2018 from paddle surf warehouse out in California for $1749 with free shipping and a board bag, price was too good to pass up! I gather the 2019 only has minor design tweaks, and would cost me a lot more. Not ideal that they're on the other side of the country, but I've had great experiences with them.
