WHAT! When did the price go up by $700?


When interest suddenly spiked from Damien and Johnny's youtube videos probably!


As with the raceboards in 2012, I thought that when the foil boards got more popular the prices would come down with larger numbers being manufacturered. Instead prices have gone up substantially :( I was struggling with buying one for $1800, but at $2200+ I will have to wait for a used one.

There was a Carafino board on ebay a few months ago that went for $700, but I wasn't sure if the older Carafino boards were as good as the newer boards. Now I see people saying they are just as easy to ride. I'm kicking myself for not buying that board!

DON'T WORRY CHICKEN CURRY, WILL GET YOU ON A NEW BOARD FOR HALF THE GOING PRICE IN SHORT TIME.

IF YOU NEED A USED ONE I WILL POINT YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

TO BE HONEST, I WAS LUCKY IF I GOT A NEW SURFBOARD ONCE A YEAR IN HAWAII. CARAFINO HAS ALWAYS MANUFACTURED BOARDS TO COVER OUR EXPENSE AND OTHER EXPENSES ASSOCIATED WITH OVERSEEING MANUFACTURING. IF WE WERE LUCKY, WE MAKE A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY.

SANTA IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. DON'T GIVE UP JUST YET.

why would you sell it if you've never used it?

Out of the 10 or so boards I have at the mo I really only use 2.
The foilboard base is currently making a great remote control
Stand for the cd player in one of the apartments I am renovating. Bought spur of the moment,
Issues from the start...cant be bothered! Tried selling it several times as it is clutter. I have a surf and skimboard same thing...well I tried the skim for 20 mins. Not something
I would get into. The foil looks great fun etc but I don't have the time really. for the amount of time it takes to advertise, deal with time wasters package and post etc I can do a days work and earn over 3 times what I would probably get for it....

Got a buddy in Austin Texas with a Carafino that has 5-6 rides behind a jetski.
He is looking at a powered paraglider now and is ready to sell his Foilboard.
Anybody interested, send me a PM and I can get you in touch.
