surftech = generic crap somebody feeding the mass's lots of hyped BS(repackage sailboard techfrom the 80's). the only constant theme I here from pop out(surftech boardworks etc) owners are how light they are, never how insane the shape is or how good they rip or how bad they suck in chop but never heard anyone say that they have a magic surftech have u?. NOT! surfing has always been about individualism now these companies have turned surfers into a bunch of sheep, and dictated what you will be able to buy in the way of length shape rails fin placement and WE CAN NOT FORGET THE EVER IMPORTANT SHRED INDICATOR THE COLOR. Another observation I have made over the last few years is that the people who claim these boards are just speed bumps in the line up any way.
