I think I just scored but not sure yet....went to my local shop here in NFL to pick up waxx for my 2 week trip to Central America and went looking in the used board section and found a used Roberts White Diamond 5'10 32L. for $300 on the East Coast!....Besides it being slight off color, it's solid with no dings or leakage and just some pressure dents on the deck. It has original FCS M-5 fins and is labled 13,830 and I already have a Roberts shape that's 18,120....That's almost 5,000 boards between these two..... how old does the erBB think my new/used ride is? Do older boards like this have life still left?? Do the M-5 fins fit this board? I also have K2.1 FCS fins and really don't want to invest in FCS as the other 5 boards I have collected recently all have Futures....

Thanks!!

Knice pick-up

If the m5 work then keep em . Most like the GAM tho sometimes with a smaller center fin . Helps the hind legs get max rippage

As for the age . I am of no service

Does the age matter? No doubt Roberts has CNCd a huge chunk of those “18,000” boards. He probably does 1000 boards a year max.


Look what the light did now.

Really thought this thread was going to be about someone more exciting than Roberts...

1000 boards a year is pretty good, if you're by yourself in a room shaping boards

The first 2 digits are the year. The last numbers are the board number in the year. If he did 1600 in 2013 the serial number of that last one would be 131600. Between 2013 and 2018 he did significantly more than 5000.

The M5s can work in that board fine. If they feel too tight try the K2.1. They are similar to a Roberts medium tri set. If the M5's feel too loose then you'll need to step up the fronts to a larger size or all 3 fins. It's all in how you want it to feel to you.

Sorry to disappoint ya Debbie


Thanks for the insight surfwhere...kinda cool to finally know what the numbers mean...

Now, the question is....what should I take to Nicaragua for 2 weeks?? should I take the 5'10 WD (FCS fins) or 5'9 Metamorph (Futures fins and match my other 2 boards)...Would anyone say the WD rides similair to the OG....lost Rocket??
