BuyMyBoard has been created by boardsport enthusiasts Jim, Kate, & Ted Windebank to help fellow boardriders sell and buy used equipment free of cost. The idea was born from the dissatisfaction of available classified sites and social media options.
The majority of classified websites can be free to post an advert but then make you pay a premium to add the most important element… the images! Also, these generic listings sites offer no expertise and offer such a wide variety of categories from kitchen sinks to dog beds.
Facebook pages have grown in popularity over recent years to sell and buy second-hand boardsports equipment. However, the big problem is there is no way to filter the result to exactly what you need. It feels like a giant unorganised pile of surfboards and I want a 5'3" fish board… There is no way of narrowing down your search as a Facebook feed is not designed for this.
BuyMyBoard offers a solution to these problems. The site provides an easy to use marketplace for boardriders that will always be free. You can select your category from surfing to SUPing, kitesurfing to wakeboarding, windsurfing to snowboarding, skateboarding to wetsuits… and then narrow down your search by features that related to that sport. Simple!
The site has just been launched in April 2015 and hopes to build initial support for listings. So please post your used boardsports gear today. We can build a free and tailored resource for all of us to benefit from together.
