    Some are gems, others are "dudes on crack selling surfboards"

    I honestly think that's a pretty impressive catalog this year. There are the neon 70s and 80s boards, the requisite Da Cats, a beautiful Bing Nuuhiwa and Bolts, there's also some really rare art/paper. And there are, imo, many boards that are of serious significance.

    1) The amazing condition 9'6" Quigg;
    2) The Curren and Hobie vintage North Shore 11'+ guns
    3) The Brewer/Trent recreations--including one in balsa--are insane.
    4) The Phil Honolulu....agah agah agah (i.e. Homer Simpson drooling)
    5) The BK
    6) The Gordie
    7) This Diff from '67

    Oh that Diffenderfer is Hot!

    Weird to see a Crest Belly Board from my neck of the woods in the line up. $350? Really?

    I can't believe that no one has bid on either the balsa Brewer/Buzzy 11'2' gun or the 10'6" Pat Curren balsa gun. Not exactly cheap at $5k minimums, but those seem like solid investments. At a loss that with an hour+ left, a Da Cat is already at $7500 yet nothing on the above two balsa beauties.

    <update> the Brewer/Buzzy balsa is finally getting some run: it's up to $9,500.
