Looking for a longboard 8-8.5ft in CFL - 2009/03/05 23:41 I'm looking for a used 8 to 8'10" longboard in the space coast area of Florida. Somewhere within an hour or so of Melbourne. It doesn't need to be in perfect condition, but would prefer only pressure indents and no un/repaired dings. Non-thrashed board bag a bonus.

Looking for something under $400, but could maybe go up to $500 if great condition.

Re:Looking for a longboard 8-8.5ft in CFL - 2009/03/06 09:55 For $400 to $500 you should be able to buy a new
8'6" funboard. Just sold my 9'2" performance
JL longboard for only $275 times are tough everywhere!
Started out at $350 no buyers had to sell as my new 9'0"
Quad was ready. Check out Craigs List in your area.

Re:Looking for a longboard 8-8.5ft in CFL - 2009/03/06 10:00 Yeah, craigslist had a tons of longboards around xmas time. But there isn't much atm for what I'm looking for. Checked the local surf shops today and they didn't have much in the 8' range.

Found an epoxy/composite board for $350 but I'm not sure I like that paint that always flakes off. I'd rather just have normal glass. Found an 8' longboard that had 3 major repairs for $235ish but it was just a bit too beat up for me.

Some guy suggested that I check pawn shops as they have better prices than surf shops. Got some really good surf coming tomorrow, too bad I couldn't find a board today. Will shop around some more tomorrow.

From what I did see you are right though. I should be able to find a fine board for $275-350ish.

Re:Looking for a longboard 8-8.5ft in CFL - 2009/03/07 06:09 An epoxy (composite) Takayama Surftech is a great
board! My buddy has a 9'2" he rides in everything
from knee high junk to triple overhead Black's
by La Jolla! $350 is a good price, cost over $1,000
new. Forget marine paint you can just spray
it with auto acrylic enamel.

Re:Looking for a longboard 8-8.5ft in CFL - 2009/03/07 10:24 Found one, finally located one on craigslist. Thanks for the tips!

Got an 8'6" Illusion longboard, fiberglass, single fin. 8' x 22 3/4 x 2 3/4. After looking at so many boards with major repairs in surf shops, it was nice to find one with almost no major damage/repairs for a cheaper price.

Some of the surf shops around here sell used boards for the same price or only $50-100 less than brand new boards. I saw a bunch of $400-600 used boards in the shops today with major repairs and dings.
