As one reviewer said about this beautiful flatwater beast – yes, you really can buy a spot on the podium.
I bought this board from Gorge Performance Portland, OR in May 2015 and in July I put it to the test in my first race. I placed second in the knockoff sprint race against strong competition and won the same race the following year. Not bad for an overweight 40-year-old guy that doesn’t do a lot of races.
The board has always been in its bag when it wasn’t on the water and stored in the garage year-round. It has never been loaned to anyone, never run across the rocks, never dinged so it’s never needed to be fixed. It does have normal wear and tear meaning normal scratches on the bottom of the nose when I brought it into the beach at the end of a race and the usual paddle marks on the sides. She’s ready to race, the only reason I’m selling it is to make room for more toys (I also have an inflatable for sale).
It’s all Carbon (this is the SCC version), weighs about 25 pounds but because of the EZ-Grab handle you can pick it straight up out of the water with ease. It also came from the factory ready for a removable race handle if that’s more your style. It’s 14 feet long, 26 inches wide and the volume is shown at 253 liters. It came with a carbon fin but you get your choice of any one of the fins I have collected. I’ve got a 7 inch carbon, 8.3 inch carbon, 10 inch carbon and some others, take your pick. The bag comes with it although it’s not in amazing shape. The handle on the flat side needs to be resewn but the handle on the thin side is just fine as are the two handles on each end. I am not sure if I have the shoulder strap anymore, I have had a few of these bags and I never felt comfortable about using the strap. It also has two Go Pro mounts, I used the one on the nose for an actual Go Pro and the one closer to the platform was for a Speed Coach GPS unit. They can be removed with some fishing line and Goo Gone if needed.
I paid almost $3,000 and am asking $1,400 which I think is fair and I'm willing to drive a bit to meet you if Bend is bit out of reach.
