Re: Banks Board for the Legends Raffle!!!!

I love mine!!

John's done some serious work over the past couple years in designing a multi-purpose dive board that fits the needs of damn near everyone on the planet. These things are selling all over the world, but for us California guys you can't find anything that comes close.

Thanks again John.

Re: Banks Board for the Legends Raffle!!!!

That thing is sick. I can already see myself diving norcal seeing a GWS and trying to stand on top of that thing trying to get away. haha.

Seriously though that is a perfect dive platform and would allow you to take a rest, drinks some water, eat a snack, and store your fish. I like it.

Re: Banks Board for the Legends Raffle!!!!

So John Banks sent us a confirmation on shipment of the board, and we are awaiting it's scheduled arrival at the shop tomorrow. I'm pretty stoked to see this thing in person and in anticipation I figured I'd share some of the specs John was kind enough to share with us.

It's 41"x24", weighs about ten pounds, and has a surface buoyancy of almost 60 pounds. With carrying straps and flag pole, this board retails at $225.
He also noted that he will be including a fastening system for guns, when the design is complete.

This thing looks pretty rad. Thanks again, John, for contributing so graciously to the event!!
