I am discovering that I much prefer the surf style over skim when I ride. Maybe I am too old and uncoordinated or just do not like all of the wipeouts trying the skim tricks. Anyway, I have a nice Phase 5 Drew Danielo Pro Carbon board that I would like to sell so I can get another surf style board. The board has only been used for a month.
At this point I do not have a box to ship it. I live in Victoria, BC and will be in Osoyoos July 31 until August 7 if you are interested and would like to check it out.
FYI, If the board is the olive green color it is the Drew Danielo Pro model, (non Carbon Fiber). All of the carbon boards they just clear coat the carbon, so they are all black. You can have colored pads, and bottom though.
I asked the same questions when I purchased it but was assured that it was a colored carbon. It sounds like I might have been hosed. I will post up a picture later. It does have a threaded weave look to it though.
The regular DD boards do have a threaded weave to them, although they are not made of carbon. You have the Texalium board. It probably looks something like this. This is a stock picture of the texalium board from the Phase 5 website. You can see the weave in the picture.
