condition: good
make / manufacturer: Driftwood Caravan
model name / number: DE Double Ender

7'3 x 22.5 x 2.75 at stringer (less than 2" at the rail)

Shaped by Graham P. Day
(small batch, rarer than rare on the east coast used market)

Good, displaced volume hidden in the width.

Not your average middie, or your bloated egg-- This is an hp machine with rounded 60/40 rails until about the last 6" of the tip and the tail were it becomes a mother effin blade that could slice through coconuts. It's a beautiful board that has served me well for about 4yrs- glassed solid at Lights Out in Oceanside, CA- the heal dents are minimal (maybe a dozen or less)- This glass job will outlast a CI Mid's by about 1 to 2 . . . decades. Seriously, and it has the solid weight for extra momentum to prove it.

Only selling b/c I'm old and more into bigger, glider-style shapes these days. At my advanced age, this is almost too much "performance" for me ; )

The ugly part of the board is that is has a little bit of stress on the bottom by the nose- It's been like that for almost 3 yrs and I've ridden it in overhead mush and drainers a bunch of times since over the years without it missing a beat.

Other than the stress, no dings/ no repairs . . .

Sorry, no fins included . . .

Description from Graham at Driftwood Caravan:

The DC Double Ender is by far the versatile shape I make. The DCDE features the outline of the classic egg with performance added design concepts that make this an extremely user friendly shape. It works well in a wide variety of conditions and works great with almost any fin configuration. Some of the key features that make this board much different from any other board in its class include a finely foiled 60/40 rail, nose entry concave into flat into a hard edge, double concave out the tail. You can up your water time and wave count with a lower entry and exit rocker for easy paddle with plenty of well disguised volume and surface area.
