    Is Midnight still in business? Their website doesn't seem to be active any more.

    appears so..bummer, they've made several for me, good product.

    XM board bags are decent, inexpensive, tend to run long.

    NUmber is still active 714-630-1377.

    Sometimes us small business owners lose track of domain registrations and get shut down.

    Could also email them: MidnightProducts@sbcglobal.net

    I sure hope so. There was a decided lack of communication and a much longer wait for my last bag a few months ago. The owner, a good guy. mentioned some personal issues causing the delay. Hope they sort it out.

    Well, there goes the neighborhood. Doubt anyone else will pick up the ball and carry on providing a much appreciated niche of the surfboard accessory sector.
    Thanks, Tom, for all the great bags and service over the years.

    Well, that's what I get for procrastinating.

    That sucks! Got my last 2 bags from them last summer and will miss the customer service and talking with Tom to get everything sorted out for my order. I hope Veterano is wrong and we can find some company to step up.

    I hope I'm wrong too. But think about it. How many custom bag buyers are there out there? When you can get a Chinese made bag for 1/2 to 2/3's of what a bag made in So. CA costs?
