"Gorge Animal" made two boards: a shortboard (usually had "sky blue"
graphics on the deck) and a big board (usually had a black carbon
deck). I've seen the shortboard and I own a big one. By today's
standards the boards are heavy and slow, but if you can get one -
really- cheap it may be worth it since they're pretty bullet proof.
My big board is about 6' (180cm) long, thick and although the deck is
clear finished carbon, the board is very heavy but I still use it on
very light wind days. I paid about $200US for it 2 years ago.
A better board (IMHO) that is also available for cheap are the older
Litewaves. These boards are also bullet proof and I've seen 2002 and
2003 models go for a great deal.
