I have my doubts

"Shark Eyes decals are as affordable as a few beers, " - hmmmm, beer or eyes decal, which to choose?
Okay, as my last thread implied I'll be home for Christmas this year. First time in nearly a decade and I'm stoked as all get out - the whole family is flying over and virtually everyone for CA and AZ will be there. Unnecessary context, I know, but I am really happy since my folks aren't getting any younger.

As my other thread has implied, I'm pretty paddle limited at present and what did I stumble upon today?

Far from a giant glider, but this would be a perfect board to ride while home, and depending on Delta I'll either bring it back here on the plane or drop it off at Bing's and get it here in April.

The proposal? If anyone is near to there and could contact the seller/pick up the board, that would be downright amazing. I can either pick it up in December, or if we can arrange a drop-off in Clairemont at my broher's, that would be great too. What do you get out of the deal? Well, the fin for one thing (Hachet's aren't my cup of tea) or if you don't want the fin, I'll put it up here for anyone who needs it. A good bottle of French red? Or white? Or let me know what else you might need or want and we'll work it out. Have a neighbor kid who needs to make a few bucks who would be willing to do the pick-up/drop off?

I can paypal you at any time, or drop you a check from Mission Fed if you prefer the old-fashioned feel of paper in your hands. Or pay you cash when I get there... all the same to me.

Sorry for reaching out yet again, but my Dad is now into his eighties and while game, I'm not sending him on any more board acquisition runs.

Anyway, sorry for the long ramble. If it's meant to be it'll happen and if not, no worries.
I will be in San Diego at Christmas (bought Air France but will be flying with Delta as it turns out) and was wondering if anyone has any experience with their new board policies. The issue would be for bringing a board back, so just one way. Supposedly boards fly free, but there is a size limit: normally they won't accept any board longer than 9'6". The rep on the phone told me that this varies greatly.

Has anyone travelled with a longer board (say, 10'6"?) and if so, what baggage fees were applied?

Many thanks,
Hollingsworth shaped Hansen up here in RI and wondering if anyone of our well quivered crew here has any ride report experience.
First hand, second hand, east coast, west coast.
Difference between vintage and these?
Info appreciated and this could be a pretty cool thread to show what you got!

Thanks in advance- Energy and set waves to All!

LA Jammers, I would like to own this Eaton Zinger. Can someone meet seller, pay for Zinger and hold in order to drop off via Leon? I will pay you via Paypal (friends) + some $ for gas/beer.

two 9'5" boards for sale. Making room for some new ones. The first link is for a board hand shaped by Reid Lingenfelter of Archaic Craft in San Clemente.

The Second is a board Ryan Engle designed for The Bandits Surfboards.
