Weber Ski displacement hull











The Ski was designed by Nat Young for Dewey Weber and was the board used by Nat in the Morning of the Earth. I bought this one cheap knowing it had a few issues but was deadset on having my morning of the Earth moment ! The few issues being that I think it spent its life on top of a boiler because its like a bed of nails to lie on with lots of ridges and creases on the deck. After two waves I'd had enough, I could feel a pidgeon chest coming on so had to run out and get another board. Life is a gamble sometimes you lose.




If anyone is interested in buying it its a great board, just needs a bit of cosmetic filler etc etc. Its redeeming feature is the lovely Greenough fin and the cool technical logo. Its 6'10 x 20 3/4 x 3.
