Back when the X was a playboat, the big new trick was a cartwheel. That boat can do that in a big enough wave as well as front surf, back surf, side surf and flat spins. Oh, and enders and stern squirts.
By today's standers, you would not be playboating in an X. You would be back on the market for a new boat next spring if not later this fall.
$250 is steep. I have a couple boats from that era that I have been unable to sell for even $50. (Prijon Samarai and Riot Slice).
-----I bought the Samarai because it is dang close to a X but less money at the time because nobody wanted to sell their X back in those days. If you really like the X size and design, You can have my Samarai for free. It needs a new backband. The current one is held on by a bungee cord that works for it's annual trip down the Royal Gorge but any new owner would want to upgrade that. It's beat up, but it's free.
I'm in Cañon City.
