I haven't surfed for ten years due to an ongoing injury but am planning to get back in the water with a longboard so am selling my two old shortboards. Excuse me if my surfing knowledge /terminology is out of date.
I'm not that sure what the value of these boards is so please any advice welcome.
The first is a Nigel Semmens I had shaped for me in spring 1992, It's a 6'8" squash tail. Fairly wide all round with deep rails and shallow rocker, no concave. High gloss finish, bright yellow deck. Hasn't discolored much for 20 years, a few pressure marks you'd expect but no dings or breaks to the glass, only a slight stress to one fin base which is solid. Very light board this was my pride and joy. It never travelled by plane only in van or roof rack, always bagged. A great board in small mushy surf, very easy to paddle and drop in with but I also rode this in over head high powerful northern Spanish surf and it was very fast.
The second I shaped myself in winter 1993, It's a 6'2" square tail. Narrow with single to double concave (if I remember correctly) deep rocker and fairly soft rails around tail area. I used clark foamfairly heavy glass for this as it was made for a road/rail trip in France, Spain & Portugal. Has discolored a bit, few pressure marks, no dings or damage. Great board, I remember throwing this around in nice fast clean offshore surf, dropping in late, big carves and snappy cutbacks.
Anyway I was thinking £250 for the 6'8" and £75 for the 6'2", Both have silicone nose cones, leashes and 'creatures of leisure' bags. If you think the prices are well out of whack let me know (either too high or too low) as I said I'm a bit out of touch now and not much comparable for either of these boards to guide price.
Feel free to call on 07599 476 303 or PM here. I can get better measurements and detailed pictures ie. nose tail etc. if required.
Will clean them both up and get more detailed pics this weekend but for now here are some I took today
