Local hero glide 8ft 3

Bought this on eBay a little while back couple of small repaired dings and a couple of pressure dents. Green colour nice condition. Paid £250 for it not surfed it yet but I reckon that's a more than fair price probably £500 odd new can chuck in a bag If we don't mess around haggling. Has rainbow 8 inch bio flex.

I have an 8ft version (skip frye 9.25" flex works great as single or a smaller tk flex with sides), Frank McWilliams + Graeme Bunt put the shape together.. ridden mine in knee high to headhigh and it really does go nicely, paddles well, very smooth - step forward to 'glide' through sections, step back to turn, even got on the nose a couple of times.. I got mine to get back in the water after a 12yr break :shock: and it was perfect, I can't get lots of boards in the car so tend to ride it when I'm not sure what the conditions are like, its a good 'go to' board unless its bigger than headhigh then I struggle to get it out back, but that is probably more an issue with my paddle fitness/duckdive technique (lack of!), i'm sure the board would handle it.. tail/rail shape is not too dissimilar to the longer Takayama egg if i remember right.. good board for the money and much more use than your typical minimal, you can actually progress on it!

Second that. Had an 8'2, the first one they shaped. Was a single fin.Classy board by a legendary shaper.Way whey better than your standard mini mell fodder.Gave it to a mate for a 50if pressie hence my thread for a mid length.Wanting to try something different but someone should bite your arm off at the arm pit.
