Craigslist has been very good to me lately. Just scored this bamboo cork 2x4, 6'0, 18 3/4 or 7/8 (can't tell), 2 3/8. Can't wait to take it out.

Thanks. The funny thing is that I was debating ordering a 2x4 a while back in EPS tech in similar dims. Super stocked!!

I was surprised how light the board is. For some reason, I expected the cork bamboo combo to be heavier, not the case.

I saw that board and I think same guy has a b saw also on there. Looks real good! Do you still wax that cork or is it tacky enough when wet to provide enough grip?

What do you want next from the stretch one shrug
I want a big cheese 9' nose rider single fin with pin tail and extra heavy eps tech glass job and maybe skate deck but more like the yater bat boards from the past. Also if I could I would like to get a three stringer (bamboo) marko blank wave2

The cork is under the glass, so the board still needs to be waxed like other boards.

I think the double concave that runs from the center of the board threw me off a little being a more backfooted surfer. For being a "small" wave board it seemed to really want some push to come alive. I rode long period DOH waves on it and never really felt like I hit it's limit.

I sold it recently to my best buddy who was going to Puerto spur of the moment and was basically begging me for a couple good boards. It always was a little porky for me and I have so many boards in that size range (6-3) that it wasn't getting much use.

He just got back yesterday, said he got super shacked on the Buddy and he was glad for the wave catching ability of it because of the crowds at a certain left point.

I sort of regret selling it because I really did have some great sessions on it but at the same time there's nothing stopping me from getting another one with a few tweaks down the road.

Full Dims: 6-3 x 19.5 x 2.4

N:12"

T:14.75"

Thanks for the link. Just read through that thread, lots of good stuff in there. The LB is definitely one of the boards I'm considering adding to the quiver for the fall.

Thx, thought maybe it was like the Lost C3 boards where the carbon is exposed. You notice a difference in float/flex at all or too early to tell?
