There it was, drifting by as we sat at a dock.

A couple of us fished it out and took it aboard.

We're thinking of selling it on EBAY or trading it for 2 cases of beer.

A pretty good haul, even though it wasn't in very good shape.

Ohh man...hopefully a surfer doesn't come floating by shortly

by 'wasn't in very good shape' do you mean it had chunks bitten out of it by a shark?

Put a big hook on it and toss it back out see if it will catch a shark.

No. It was delaminating in a couple of spots and the fins were missing.

Still, a guy in Minnesota or somewhee could buy it, tie it to the top of his car in the wintertime to impress chicks!!!!!

ever heard of a snowboard?

OK, DPMMN, here's my final offer:

2 cases of beer and I'll drive as far west as Mecca(Camp Perry) to drop it off at another ARFCOMER's
house if you can find one that'd drive it further west, etc until it gets to Minesota.


If you want to set up sort of a bucket brigade,(Surfboard brigade?) let me know!!!!!!!!

Last chance. Goes on EBAY tomorrow.
Link Posted: 9/23/2004 10:09:09 PM EDT
I'm still thinking.....................but what the hell would I do with a surfboard. I haven't been on any water since I got out of the Navy in 1984, and I hate Snow

Ebay might be your best bet

i'd pay to see DPMMN on a surf board. bring it up to duluth and ride the waves man!

Actually aren't there those baracudas on the coastline.
Link Posted: 9/24/2004 8:30:57 AM EDT
if you auction it don't offer to pay shipping. Standard UPS for a shortboard coast to coast is at least $60.00 business to business. Longboards usually have to go freight carrier.

Just get drunk and ride it down some flights of stairs, or get a car and waterski rope and go parking lot skitching.

Looks like one of the guys off of one of the tugs wants it.

In Negotiations now.

A case of beer for a honked surfboard? You came out ahead. Although I would have liked to see the E-bay auction or lack thereoff. Did you ever find out what shipping and packing would cost?

AND you didn't teach the SEC to surf so you could write the second book. Oh yeah you haven't written the first book yet have you?

"Traffic was snared for hours today as drivers reported sighting a cat surfing under the Monogahela Bridge today. Pictures at 11 tonight on News 8."
