Thanks for the offer. That's getting too close to my 94L Kode.

Ideally I'm looking for a backup board for my Futura when it's under repair. This is the case again at the moment. I bought this Futura new in October. I new they where more prone to damage because of their light weight but man, you look at this board funny and it breaks. It's durability is very disappointing especially considering how much you pay for one new. It can't take the slightest knock. It seems the older Futuras where more forgiving. Supper fun to ride though. Anyhoo, something like another Futura or Carve would be a good backup board if the price is right.

I know where a 2012 Carbon Art slalom is for sale. I think 109L and not a really aggressive shape in terms of tail width.

I'm not too familiar with Carbon Art. Where is this mysterious board your speak of?

It's in Seattle. They are a high end custom from New Zealand. Know to be solid.

I can put you in touch if you want.

Conversely certain years/volumes of Go are the same shape as the Futura of that era, but significantly tougher.

Thanks for the lead Grant. I think I'll still aim for something like a Futura, iSonic, or Carve. I will keep that Carbon Art in mind though.

Bumb. Still looking for a slalom or freerace board along the lines of a Futura or iSonic in the 114-136'ish range.
