Selling a board in Costa Rica

« on: July 07 2009 00:07:00 »

taking my board to surf through Central America and thinking of selling in Costa Rica.

Is it easy to sell boards over there? Does anyone know what you would get for a good clean second hand in Costa Rica?

you may get 100 dollars maybe. most often not your best bet is to bring it home or give it to someone who is not going to sell it. there all steeling fuckers down there anyway so if you have it by the time you leave I would just break it in front of the locals!!!!! they were going to jack it from you anyway so now they can share it !!!!

Awesome sounds like I should get a party going for the locals, show them how us gringos have a good time! But thanks, I am not taking my best board just in case it get stolen or broken. Getting something is better than nothing.
