I bought a surfboard the other day. From some guy in Brooklyn. Off Craigslist.
It's a 9'0", custom-made board. (Er, not custom-made for me, but rather custom-made for some other dude that then sold it to some other dude who then sold it to me).
Special thanks to Dianne for playing the role of my security detail for the trek out to Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn with a wad of $20s in my pocket. The guy who sold me the board (Yuval) could not have been any less sketchy and gave me a great deal on the board. I'm going to test it out in Montauk this weekend. I'll be sure to report back if the sharks don't get to me first.
ps: more and more.
