As we celebrate the latest addition to your quiver, I realize that I should articulate and activate my secondhand Harbour wish list.
Here is a list of boards I would love to add / upgrade to my quiver.
9'8" Wingpin - 2 + 1 fin set-up. I would consider going up to 9'10" on this board, but don't think I should go any bigger or it will get to be too much of a log for where it fits in my quiver - an all around board that can be logged and can charge up to double overhead marias & wildo and slightly smaller doggies. My current Wingpin is transforming nicely into a log in its advanced age. Max price $600 - whadya think?
9'11" - 10'2" Banana. My Banana is a true piece of genius, but the glass is so brittle that it's almost beyond the point of repair. I may go for one more round with Dave Stiles. I would pounce on a quality replacement, but since I have the cranberry stick too, I am not exactly desperate and want to make sure my next Banana is a real piece of J. Based on your recent purchase, I am putting top price at $550. Of course, I would love to pay only $400! That was the deal of the decade.
10' Sol - An unlikely board to find on the used rack, but might as well add it to the list. My current Sol is 9'8" and I would consider going past 10' if the board still looks fast and manageable enough for Tres (although I suspect I may be SUP primarily at Tres going forward - we'll see). I will pay up to $750 for the right Sol
Of course, I am hoping to find each of these for far less than my max prices, but I put them in there so you can feel comfortable pulling the trigger if the right board comes along and I can't be reached because I am logging one of my current Harbours.
There you have it.
HAPPY MALOGUA. I am landing in Boston and flying back to PR on Sunday
