    (also posted in board pics, but maybe will get some more views here)

    found this 10' jim phillips in a dark corner of letgo, has had a nose-job done, but done pretty well. do these things have any worth? (grabbed the 8'6" canyon on the way home to fix and continue to fund the obsession :))

    also, i need to start my memoir of all my craigslist transactions. P.O. said she never had intentions of surfing it and only wanted to hang it....said "the fin was getting in the way, i was going to break it off!"

    will clean it off soon and see if i've made a good investment or a terrible mistake...cool fin though, for the price paid, it wouldn't be a complete loss...can grab more pictures when it isn't as dark out...

    looking promising below the wax, glass looks pretty clean and doesn't look like any major pressures. no sign of any signature or marking on the stringer whatsoever. oh and it's 10'4".

    Logo says Jim Phillips. Since Jim is the only builder of Jim Phillips Surfboards. It’s a Phillips Not sure when he was useing Da Hoale Guy logo. He pops in now and then He could date that Board .

    If it rides good, I’d say you scored.

    bottom isn't super pretty, but it cleaned up pretty nice. to be honest probably not keeping it, so if anyone on here is interested in an old phillips with a half decent nose job shoot me a message. funding an old BMW motorcycle now....

    sure wish I still had my R60...purred like a kitten, and the only one of my former rides I'd trust myself on at this age
