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!

This is why I am making my own. Companies are taking the piss.

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.

I will let you know if I bother/have time to put my Carafino on ebay.

Its the first one with the decent board.

Never been used. Postage to the states a bit high mind.

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.
