    I know it's not a surfboard but I'm selling some plumeria. Plumeria are the plants that produce the flowers that Hawaiian leis are made from. They grow in the ground in warmer climates but are great container plants in others. I live in Wilmington NC and grow them in containers. There are hundreds of varieties each with a different colored flower and scent. As the plants mature you can take cuttings and plant them and on and on. So my once small collection has taken over and I'm forced to sell some.

    Here's the surf connection. I've been collecting them from all over the world as I've traveled. It's a unique way to remember the places I've surfed. Sometimes I smuggle them back in board bags and other times I'll order them while abroad and have them shipped to me. And I've started to grow some from the seeds of my plants and some from seeds from other growers.

    I'm selling plants from Hawaii, Mexico, Australia, Thailand, the US and the Bahamas. $25 and up depending on the size and rarity. Shipping would be tough but I travel the Eastern seaboard quite a bit so could deliver if someone really wanted one. They are easy to grow - they are said to thrive on neglect - so no green thumb needed. And people love them when in bloom. The scent of apple, peach or citrus from some varieties is really amazing.

    I have attached a few pictures from my garden but I have plenty others.

    That variety on the bottom right is gorgeous. Nice project you have going there.

    I may be the worst gardener on the planet, but would be interested in trying to grow that one from seeds! Any way to work that out?

    I'd be game for a plant, but can't imagine trying to get it here alive.

    Might be heading up to Little River South Carolina, to visit my Sister. If that works out I will get in touch. They are Beautiful plants.

    Everytime I read the title of this thread, I think that NCJohn is selling a Brewer. ):
