    Takayama Mike Stidham model, 9'6 in a coke bottle green tint and nice wedge t-band. Looks to be in the near new condition described. $950, "no rush to sell".


    Boss 10'1", the standard pintail. Good shape, the usual double sticks, yelorange tint, $600. If you haven't ever ridden a Boss, they're *great* boards, the first stepdeck/steptail I'd ever tried and I ended up having a couple of them before I liquidated a chunk of my quiver pre-move to Brazil. And even though I prefer noseriders with concave, the flat bottom under the nose on this model of Boss works great for schnozzing. The step in the nose allows you to put weight on your front foot which acts as an accelerator (or shift weight to your back leg to slow down) to keep you where you want to be in the wave.


    Funny I see this the same day as I post the above Boss. This Canvas 10'2" is, let's say, a "tribute" to the Boss. Pintail, stepnose/tail, but this seems to have concave. In very nice condition for $500 with clear/two drop volan layup with a glass-on with less trailing edge.


    Jerry O'Keefe has shaped for Weber for....a long time. He also does occasional boards under his own label. Here's a nicely looking pulled in noserider, 10'2" x 24" and it looks clean. "Ridden 4-5 times". White tint, box, $675.


    10'4" Irvin pig, single stick (but nice and dark, probably 3/4") with glassed-on wooden skeg. Looks new, $600 (in ad title, $725 in ad verbiage. Dude obviously had not takers at $725 and is now ready to sell).


    Lastly, a *beautimous* Phil Edwards, a special one with a wide (2"? 2.5"?) balsa and cedar t-band with cedar outboards and nose/tail blocks AND glass-on (which stupidly is not shown from the side view, but I'd bet is wooden). "The board is almost perfect. A couple of small dingets on the board. A 9.5 on a 10 scale."

    $1500 with wooden wall hangers. Phil wrote "Fair Winds, Following Seas, The Perfect Wave" along with his signature. No length listed, but the owner will send. I'd bet 9'6-ish. Worthy of the price.

    I suspect that if someone wanted a really nice Weber Performer (I am told that it is), in California it could go for 2 Gs. Here in the VaB area, not so much.
