Kings Custom Laser 8'10 x 31 and Focus Rawson 8'4 x 29

Selling boards to reduce quiver and make room for new board.

8’10” x 31” x 4.2” 125.5L Kings Laser Custom – High Performance Surf SUP $750

I had this board custom made in 2017 by Dave Daum at Kings Paddleboard in Ca, was over $2000 new, designed for New England sloppy surf conditions, short enough for sporty fun yet wide enough for stability. This board took my SUP Surfing to a new level quickly. Board is in excellent shape, with minimal paddle scratches and 1 small pressure mark. Board is ultra-light and fast.

PERFORMANCE: The Laser is designed to be easy to ride for high level beginners through expert level SUP surfers. This board gives you solid stability with maximum maneuverability. The Laser is well suited to waves heights from 1' to 10' making it a highly versatile choice. The Laser likes to be ridden from the tail with one foot on the stomp pad and the other foot just behind the center of the board, likes to be ridden fast and down the line, allows you to make hard snaps and reentries and to make super tight cutbacks without losing speed. The Laser works fantastic in mushy as well as steep hollow waves.
THE SHAPE: The design is created using state of the art 3D CAD software. The Laser has medium high nose rocker which helps prevent the nose from pearling on late drops. It has high tail rocker allowing very loose turns. The bottom of the Laser has a single full length concave that feathers out into a slight V running of the back of the tail. The concave gives you high lift and high speed. The rails are, like all King's Boards, super thin allowing you to penetrate the face of the wave for control and maneuverability. King's rails are not chunky and square like all other brands! The deck is fairly flat for comfort. The OEM deck pad is diamond cross cut with a kick-block and arch bar.
CONSTRUCTION:   Comes with four FCS II side fin boxes and a 10-1/2" long center fin box. The board includes FCS II fins. The bottom of the board is laminated with epoxy resin and 3 layers of 4oz fiberglass cloth which wraps around the rails onto the deck.  The deck of the board is laminated with epoxy resin and 3 layers of 4oz fiberglass cloth and a foot patch of 6 oz fiberglass cloth. The fiberglass lamination which wraps around the rails onto the bottom. This gives you 24 oz of fiberglass on the rails for protection against dings.  Rails also protected is RsPro Rail saver Tape. The top and bottom are finished using epoxy resin.

8’x4” x 29.25”x 4.25” 117L Focus Rawson – Carbon High Performance Surf SUP $350

Board is from 2014 but is still in good condition, has some paddle wear and tear and repaired fin boxes, great board if looking to step down to a short board style sup for serious wave riding. The tough construction of this board makes it durable yet very light and fast.

CONSTRUCTION: Boards are constructed with the Focus ACT tech.  The ACT uses a combination of  Carbon Fiber, Epoxy, fiberglass, and bamboo to make some of the strongest and lightest SUPs on the market. Comes with 2 side bite fins and 2 honeycomb Focus Fins.
PRO REVIEW: I ran this thing in a quad and loved the drive down the line, the easy engagement of the rails off the bottom and the smooth transfer off the top. It’s one of those boards that doesn’t feel entirely displaced from your regular shortboard but still allows you to paddle in relative comfort. I really liked the tail too, which was very responsive but still wide enough to provide stability waiting for waves.

Located in Southeastern Ma, will not ship, will drive within reason to meet.

screaming deal on the Rawson. I have that board personally and it absolutely rips.  Its shaped like no other board- traditional shortboard shape but volume tucked in the right places to bring it to 117l and still be 29 wide.  29 is the MAGIC er and tough for the 200+ lb set,

Would have bought it just as a spare if I saw this earlier...and was just in MA when posted!
