Has anyone else noticed the high number of sellers on CL and Offerup who have brand-new, in the wrapping, Gerry Lopez Wavestorms? Are there that many people out there who are looking to make a buck off of these Wavestorm models?

neither, just a crafty ass dude who realized converting his name into a fungible asset would = a hella fun life without ever spending a single day 'working for the man'... mission accomplished.

One man's "sellout" is another man's "cashing in". Or are these synonymous?
Neologism dujour is 'monetize'. Question is, do these boards have anything functionally distinctive, or environmentally redeeming that sets them apart? If it's only about branding, then that's kinda sad.

Editing:: after a quick look at the Costco website, the GL is about a half inch thicker, about 4 pounds heavier and about ten bucks more expensive than the comparable Wavestorm.
