You can go to the HIC or Surfboard Outlet and get a new board that has been sitting in the rack for a couple of months for under $500. And if it’s a little older closer to $400.
If you don't mind off the rack then Surfboard Factory Hawaii and T&C Factory has some deals. I've bought two OTR boards in the last 6 months for under $550.

Love the justification.

I'll say anything in Lib Tech construction, as I don't think you have one and its something I'd like to hear your feedback on. :geek:
It's heavy (to the point of clunkiness) and no where near as durable as they say. I didn't notice anything particular about the flex, but usually I don't. Lib-tech is on my list to avoid. Vastly prefer: Black Dart, Spine-tek, or good ol' Surftech Tuf-Lite. (Seems to me that Tuf-Lite is the one that actually truly lives up to its name.)

CFT blows all those away for lightness to strength ratio plus great shape works in most peoples backyard.

Real Water Sports has the ones MC shaped and Timmy Patterson shapes the customs. Been eying em myself, stock dims not really up my alley tho
Well, after some thinking the Cole twin pin looks interesting. Anywhere on the west coast I could get my hands on one?

You peep the Stacy Bullet twin as well?

I think one can be found in CA OTR, just need to find the right shop.

havent heard much about the Chili round twin but looks similar to the Stacy. Dont know of any chili shops but maybe you do.

Proof Lab in Mill Valley only has a 5'6 (28.6L) in stock right now. The Stacy's tail is more pulled in and the Fire Chief is about a 1/4" wider at similar volumes.

Hit up email on the MC site and they will direct you to rep who is in Cali pretty sure. If there is one stocked here he will be best resource
Been eying the same but torn between that and the hybrid, and the shorty. None of the stock dims are for what I want unfortunately, I am personally good ATM in the mid length category but envisioning a shorter version like 6'8 in my dims.. Hopefully you have a match somewhere! Would be nice to see one in person to get a feeling for stock rails/rocker.
