WTB: used air chair/hydrofoil

My hubby is looking to pick up an used air chair. If anyone has one they are thinking of getting rid of or knows of one for sale please let me know.

They come up on ebay two or three times a month in the summer. Currently there's only one hydrofoil on there - a Sky Ski LE with 21 hours left, 0 bids, starting bid of $99. It would be a great deal if it's not a scam. Hydrofoil on ebay.

If he gets an Air Chair brand, make sure it's the later Stealth model. The earlier Air Chairs, pre-Stealth, were problematic.

Thanks he was bidding on one that ended yesterday. It ended up going for 475 I think. What is a descent price for an used one? I'll tell him about that one, although I imagine he's seen it too.

You might try posting to the Yahoo list or the for sale forum at Foilfreaks, see if somebody has an older ski to sell.

You might also give Lonnie Marchand a call - he often has used stuff or good deals, and he's a super nice guy.

It would be very unlikely IMHO to get a usable hydrofoil for under about $500. Anything less than that and you're looking at old foil designs making a steep-but-short learning curve even steeper.

I started on a 2005 Stealth Air Chair that I bought new from Lance Reinsma on ebay for $1000. I outgrew it in about 1.5 seasons and sold it last summer for $920, replacing it with a Sky Ski that I bought used from BobbyB here on Team Talk for $1750.

Used hydrofoils are interesting. I note this old Air Chair has two days left on ebay and has already had 20+ bids and currently is at $450. It's the old pre-Stealth foil.

IMHO, your hubby should buy a new Stealth and resell it when he's done with it.
