    Just got back from a great trip to El Salvador and am already booking my return trip now. I need to sell a few gems to finance it. Hate to let this one go and hope it goes to a Jammer. This board is in 9/10+. There may be one or two tiny heel dents but thats all. No repairs/dings. Board rides amazing. 1" Center stringer, nose, tail blocks, and glassed in Palownia fin with amazing bead. IMG_1368.JPG IMG_1825.JPG

    From the Jacobs site:

    The Model A is a traditional board that has no sweet spot or pivot point so it can be turned from any part of the board. This board features a soft, round bottom and contoured rails which stick to the wave. This board will start to angle across the wave all by itself. The board also has a long flat rocker in the mid-length of the board for ease of paddling and amazing glide. In addition the nose and tail have a slight rocker for easy turning. The trick was to put the flat rocker together with ease of turning. This is achieved by a blend of eggy down rails in the midsection of the board to up-style rails at the tip of the tail. This board will allow you to catch waves effortlessly and surf with tradition and style.

    Pics are bad - I'll take some better ones. $800

    I rode Roach’s 10’6” same model 3 sessions during my San Diego trip. Excellent shape and really fun to ride. Your’s is a beauty.

    That's a stunning board at a super price. Good luck with the sale.

    I've heard the best things about the Model A. This is barely more than half of the original cost. Go and get it, LoS.

    My only reservation is that the Model A is really a point break board at heart. Area where i surf...there is only one point break and it is pretty remote..so i don't get out there often. When i do get out there, i ride my DR Penetrator and it works super well out there.

    Otherwise, i'm surfing beach breaks...so i'm afraid the Model A wont really get much water time.
