Longboard.net Forum - Since 1997

Saw the video on youtube. What the hell is going on here?
sexy sexy looking but, wondering if the wax melter chatter that I've heard is all fact -

Any 1st hand experience? is Black much different than other dark tints?

keep in mind I dont live in FLA or Baja(wish)

p.s. if you know what I'm looking at no need to make it public thx;)
Anyone here riding them (or views on them?)

Just saw on the 4th gear flyer site they've a sale on. Iv always been tempted to try one and I was thinking recently if could come in handy for a few off shore spots for photography where I could deflate it after the paddle out and re inflate it for the paddle home.
I am looking for a Tyler 777. Thinking in a 9'6" or so. I normally ride a 10' + and have seen most ride these shorter. Heck, up to 10' is fine too. I have cash, boards for trade, or cash plus boards. However you want to do it. Please just PM me with it. Thank you.
A friend of mine is looking to connect with 2 Longboard professionals to make a documentary for a french television channel.
The road trip would be following them thru the states of Texas, New Mexico and Colorado.

Any leads,introduction ,advice, recommendation, networking are welcome.

MEssage me for more details...
A good friend practically forced me to try a paipo recently and i had so much fun on it and it brought back so many memories i decided to try to make one.

It was very time consuming but a lot of fun and i like working in wood. I used a table saw to rip the boards, a jig saw to rough out the shape and then a belt sander...yes belt sander to shape it and take off most of the material. A belt sander is by no means ideal for shaping but luckily i had a lot of material to remove so i had some time to practice before it got critical.
After i had shaped it i got a larger grinder that had a large enough flat but flexible round sanding plate and i used it for about 10 minutes between the what you see as the finished product with no tung oil and the finished product with tung oil.

Don't do this if you don't have a lot of time to devote to it although the large grinder would make it faster.

Selling/trading my eq only because I have a 9'8 lined up . A few months old. No dings or scratches. Going to scrape tonight and see if there is any pressures. Will trade for other ZC/Board Design boards and or cash. Pm me if interested. Thank you
You like going really fast? Smukes template, single to double concave, great board, one decent pressure from a knee on the bottom, the usual nicks here and there from being ridden, over all in good shape, 7', Volan, 3 inch thick

9.8 x 23 1/2 x 3 1/8. I bought it used from Surf Ride last October. Has 1 repaired minor ding and a couple of small snackles that dont really come out in the pics. Comes with ofishl side bites and 7" center fin. In DE. $550 obo. Its a fun all around type board. PM or email johnwdonahue@yahoo.com with questions or if you want to see more pics.

better pics will follow. it was so humid when I took these pics that my lense kept fogging.


Got a shot at a 10' at a great price...haven't ridden a Tyler in over a decade. Good choice for slower so cal points? Would appreciate any any feedback from those who have been on one. Anyone know why the model was discontinued?
