While searching craigslist last week I came across something I never thought I would see. I had found an OS3 Fish out of Water longboard, and surprisingly it was in pretty nice shape. The special thing about this longboard is that it is cut from a miniature surfboard blank. Because of this, many of these OS3 are in sad shape, the board itself is strong but it doesn't like smashing into things.

These boards came standard with Revenge trucks, which are torsion trucks which allow you to carve back and forth very tightly and extremely effortlessly. I have never ridden a surfboard but these trucks are said to give longboards a very unique "surfy" feel. As far as I can guess, it is true, it has a very different feel as compared to any longboard I have ever ridden.
