Are you the type of person that's hands on and likes to fix things with just enough board repair skills to get by?
Are you ready for foiling but have not jumped in yet?
Well, I've got the perfect project for you.
My bad luck is your good luck as Ive got the perfect foiling platform to pass on.
Earlier this winter, I went over the handbars on my trusted ml 89 cm xl slalom board. Its cracked on both rails and along the bottom.
Best guess is some of the foam needs to be routed out and filled back in and then a new bottom skin applied over the repaired area. The good news is everything form the mast track back is solid. The deep tuttle box is in great condition.
You'll need lots of love and time for this project but the good news is the repair wont matter much as when you're foiling- because it wont be in the water. The first $250 takes it all!
Inquire within for more details or see http://www.iwindsurf.com/classifieds.iws?db=boards&search_and_display_db_button=on&db_id=22561

I will outbid sailtildark and throw that board in the dumpster for just $150!

I think there might just be a missing decimal point.
I'm sure it must be $2.50, or maybe even $25.00, but that would require two mistakes. Rolling Eyes

Sure, I'll give you a bottle of TJ's Chianti for it. Or a couple of power bars (your choice). (Or you might wait for the <expletive> that gives you $250 for the piece of <expletive>).

I have to ask, why not have Mike Z repair the damage and keep the board? In the past, Mike has repaired some of my boards.

Weight and balance, assymetrical.
It can be fixed, but adding a lbs. up forward off towards one side is not a desireable trait for a national caliber slalom and foil/course racer's main board.
Plus, Mike has been discouraging doing windsurf board work.

I tried to get Mike to build me a board 2 years ago. He told me that he would place me on his to do list. Still waiting!!!
