    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.

    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.
