    Hi Jamboarders:

    Quiver downsizing, commence!

    Next up is this 6.5 Channin 1980 Twin Fin Surfboard
    Excellent 8.5/9 out of 10 condition
    All color & two-tone resin pinlines by the legendary Sam Cody
    6 Feet 5 Inches - Length
    21.5 - Width
    2 7/8 - Thickness

    One fixed ding on the nose, but otherwise in incredible condition for a nearly 40 year old board. A couple of very light pressure bumps on the deck, but a very, strong quality glass job on this board has kept it in excellent condition. 100% watertight. Darker marks on deck are simply old wax that I couldn't get off before I took the pics (and before the thunderstorm hit yesterday). Vintage glass on 5.75 inch tall twin fins also in excellent condition.

    This board is an absolute blast to ride, and has always been a rider for me. Plenty of volume to turn waist high slop into a super fun session, and it really comes alive when you have a broader wave face to work with. High line speed runs into arcing cutbacks will guarantee to put a smile on your face. Its quite a blast.

    $395 OBO

    The board is located in NC.
    Meet up/delivery/regional JB board train are always possibilities. And this board can be packed & shipped through Amtrak just about anywhere in the continental US for $75-90-ish.

    I'm happy to answer any questions, or provide more details.
    PM me here through Jamboards or email Nicecds AT with any questions.

    What a killer score!
    This is one board you could definitely Fly on, but this is also what is known as a "Spot the Dude"* board.
    Vintage and incredibly functional, but when not being surfed, a quick clean and gleam, and at 6'5 it can Easily be displayed proudly on a wall- at an angle to denote speed- and at any gathering, especially the boring ones where surf talk is verboten, you can easily "Spot the Dude"* staring in quiet admiration and nicely begin a usually much needed life saving conversation.

    And you absolutely can't get more 80's than that rope bracelet leash string!

    Someone needs to score, ride, and preserve this treasure.
    Rad offering here Mark.

    *Spot the Dude is not relegated strictly to members of the male sex. Chicks/Women of course are not only included but also an incredibly sought after commodity due to rareness/radness and other factors highly sought after by the superficial male.
    Promiscuity is not a must, but please give it more than 11secs before you start a sentence with the words "My boyfriend..."

    NOW- Someone score this Board!

    I'm completely fine with the aging process, 100% accepting of all that comes with it, utterly grateful to have lived this long...

    ...until I see boards like this.

    Now I remember that board! S. Grom, you'd flip out with the metric system I live in now. ;)
