old longboard - is mast base different?

Postby qwertyjjj » Fri Apr 15, 2016 1:56 pm

I'm considering picking up an old longboard as I don't have $1000-2000 to spend on a new board even though I would probably like the Kona One, I just can't justify spending that much on a board.
However, there seem to be relatively few used longboards around in Canada or Quebec.
Any ideas where I could get one?
Secondly, I was considering a Mistral equipe or Fanatic Ultra Cat but are the mast bases different? I have one of the newer mast bases.
Looking for something around 200litres plus.

Hey Joe....I have a 99 Equipe' and it has a screw thread for a shortboard base in the sliding mastrack.
Works fine as I don't have the original Mistral base/extension...not sure about a Fanatic tho
