    Default Please help me ID my gravity board!

    I paid $80 for this board on ebay a few months ago from some old guy who said he bought it during the 80's. Although i'm not interested in selling it, I am curious as to what it may be worth. Some "vintage" boards that look a lot like mine are going for $300-$400 dollars, so I'm just wondering if mine may be worth somewhere around there as well.

    The board is about 40 inches in length. It has a spoon nose/kick tail, with an image of king triton/posidon (something of that nature), on the back. On the front it has a "G" and "gravity comp-series" written on it.

    If anyone has an idea as to what my board may be called/worth, please share!

    Nothing has really changed in the past few months, so I'd say it's worth the $80 you paid for it.

    Well, no. I wouldn't suspect that the value has increased over a few month period. But I do wonder if the seller sold me the board at a price lower than its value, seeing as how he's had it for 20something years and may not know if it was worth more than the $80 he was asking for it.

    A great many "vintage" longboard ads you see on E-Bay are just simply scams.

    Boards are simply worth the price you can find a buyer for.
    The sage, Longboard Buddha once said, "A tree spends 100% of its lifetime in a static environment and only after its reincarnation as a deck is it allowed to move at fast speeds...
    when allowed, the wood will give thankless service if
    allowed to flow."

    definitely not from the '80s... but worth every penny if you bought it as a complete!
    if you can't understand what's right...
    ...there will be nothing left.

    looks like the old rpm39 shape.
    wish they still made that one.
