Hi all, somewhat new member here. Been lurking once in a while and see that there is a whole community of CL board stalkers! Ha ha...have bought and sold from there for years.

Anyways, WTB a new longboard. In the last 10 yrs I've switched to probably 60% + of my surfing on a longboard as shoulder/neck issues limit my shortboard patience.

During that time I've been riding a self-shaped 9'6" pintail. (also have an 80's velzy 9' that I scored from a neighbor 15yrs ago for $50!, yellowed. Rode for few years, needs restoration)...

Am open to buying a used one in the 9'4" -9'8" range, prefer a 9'6" if anyone has one here at the moment, I am in so. orange co, ca.

Am considering ordering a new one...being that used go for close to new prices, kinda...I don't want anything beat up.

All this being said, what would some of y'all recommend for someone that surfs a lot of Old Man's/SanO? I know I don't want a classic square tail noserider....but DO want to nose ride and turn. Old Man's can be kinda a diverse wave. I need something that can handle waves 2' overhead or so, I like sets...Have good exp. with Harbour and am considering Roger Hinds...

sorry for the long post, mahalo.

Michael Takayama at Old Mans would have told you 10 years ago to get a board from Takayama Surfboards, now he will tell you to get a Michael Surfboard from him.

Don't get me in trouble in my 1st post Bryce!

and thanks SeniorGrom, Jim Phillips on the list for sure.

I guess I dunno about pricing...as $1500 realm would be quite enough coin

Well both options I mentioned make good longboards for Sano.

Also check out Tyler Surfboards...they have a big following for a good reason
