    Surftechs that you really like

    I've owned and ridden numerous surftech boards over the years and love them. As a 230 lbs, 5'7" guy I learned how to surf on a 11'0 Mickey Munoz Super Glide, when new models came out, I moved down 10'6" Mickey Munoz Glide.

    hawaiian lifeguards

    I think both the original post and the video are conflict inducing. We don't know what the events surrounding the video are. Maybe the guy almost got drilled into the reef during a previous heat because this guy got into the way. Maybe they have a history of violence between them the whole...

    Is it wrong to buy Surfboards made in China and Thailand?

    This is making me think, is it wrong to buy surfboards not made in Hawaii. Mmm, you're betraying the Hawaiians who have surfed the longest, where would the surf industry be if no transfer of knowledge occured. Human rights, economics, I'm not sure. In this country, we want things at a low price...

    Clark Foam shut down!

    I'm just stating an opinion and some facts. I spoke with Bob Wise today he stated that the Australians can't produce enough foam blanks for their own market. Bob also stated that shops that have a USA made boards only rule are screwed. Aloha, Al

    Clark Foam shut down!

    Just talked with one of my buddies he said that Australia is barely meeting demand for their own shapers. All the shops that wouldn't buy foreign made boards/foam are screwed. I wonder how Dingo surfshop will fare.

    Clark Foam shut down!

    This is what is in the Honolulu Star Bulletin: I guess only Surftechs,Boardworks, NSP boards, and other alternative technology surfboards will be produced in large volumes. The EPA, CALOSHA, and other regulatory agents shut them down for...
