Bonzer swap??

Postby Archy_is_God » Tue Jul 01, 2014 8:37 am

Long shot, but I'm looking to swap my 6'8" Campbell Bros 5-fin Egg, Laminations-glassed, clear/sanded, for a Campbell Bros Russ Short between 6'8" and 7'4" (preferably a 7'0") with a bit of cash your way for a board in good nick if you have such a thing?

Hey Archie, have you ridden a Russ Short at that length? (If so, please ignore this below!).

This is just my opinion, but comparing the two the Egg will paddle better, be more versatile, and just feels better to surf.

I had a 7'2" R.S. for a while, and the only good surf I had on it was when it was 4-5' (in old money), and just one of those classic days.
If you want it just for those perfect days, then fair enough. Personally, I'd buy that other red 6'8" egg on here instead!

Hi Phil

Looking for the RS to use purely in OH to double OH surf that's got some grunt

Egg is great as a step up, but I need a semigun

It should do the trick then, as the one I had felt like a semigun!

Good luck with the search.
