Well now there’s the needle in the haystack like this twinzer. Goes back to my earlier statement, there is an ass for every seat.I'm not sure about that Dave...
I think we had a long thread about the Skip Frye ‘cult’. Some us here are in, others not so much. The Surfers Journal article a year ago or so gave some insight and great pics. I’m one who doesn’t quite get it, not so much about the man and his involvement but more about there being many other shapers who produced boards much more refined. Curran, Diffenderfer, Edwards, Brewer. Have to admit I haven’t seen, felt, or surfed many but my eyes have me questioning their beauty or exceptional craftsmanship. No clue about the rideability.
Also, early Japanese built import car prices are on a dramatic rise. Some were much more advanced and of higher build quality than US covered wagons (muscle aside) being screwed together during the same era.
One last word from the poster (me) who used that terrible word "cult" and started that sheetstorm (is that worse than being tagged a "socialist" HA!). You want to pay $3 grand for a brown turd that I would not even pull out of a dumpster? Fine.
I'll pay a grand for 2 great travel boards and fly off to surf some perfect waves in an exotic location.
Now doesn't that make more sense? Kind of like socialism does.
