    This board is brand new. I made this one as a custom order for a guy in Santa Barbara but the sale fell through after the board was already finished and in the spirit of "good karma" I refunded the customer his full deposit.

    It's templated off a mid 60s G&S pig, with a slightly more rounded tail. Rocker and rail foil match the original board exactly. Heavy volan glass job with a solid 2" cedar stringer. The blank alone cost me $470 given the fact that we used a 10ft long piece of cedar lumber to prevent any seams like those 8ft pieces have when glued together.

    I made the fin out of spanish cedar and paulownia.

    I'm hoping to get close to $900 here on Jamboards as I was asking $1150 from the customer in SB.

    A few jammers have seen this board in person and can attest to the fact that pictures just don't do it justice.

    I'm more than happy to ship it.

    That’s a beautiful board. Too bad the customer pulled out. GLWTS. Worth a lot more than you’ve asked for. Do you shape under your name, JB?

    Bump for this. Nine bills = bargain.

    Feel free to show us more of your work (and your lam), JB.

    Thanks for the positive vibes Eric! Honestly I'd be totally happy with $800 at this point.. I just need the funds to buy materials for upcoming custom orders.

    When I get home from work I'll send you some pics of recent builds I've done. I don't have any pictures on my work laptop. I'll also be finishing up my new website within the next few weeks.

    Looking forward to the photos; post 'em up in this thread if you would so everyone can see 'em. And obviously, good luck with the rollout of the new site.
