I got a new hip in January. I had relagated myself to prone riding on body boards, etc. the last few years because I had no pop-up, but I'm considering giving stand-up another go. There is an interesting board on my local FB markeplace, a 10' Ventura. The price is imo a bit high, at $500 for a board that is claimed to be watertight, but has a couple of rough cosmetic issues, one of which is a tail glass repair that I might feel compelled to tackle before even getting it wet. I lack pretty much any information on the Ventura brand. According to my copy of Stoked-n-Board, this brand may have only existed in 1963, That year does seem consistent with the board shape and features: neutral rails, widening outline through the hips (quite "hot-doggy"), glassed-on D fin. Anyone here know anything more about this brand, or possibly specific models of same? Thanks for any info provided.
