I've been hearing about how China will flood the market with mass-produced (in which state I'm not sure) surfboards/pre-shapes?
Who is using these boards? I've heard the "Realm" boards available at Costco are Chinese.
Don't you think that the majority of surfers will not see the value in these boards and punish those builders who do use them?
I'd be curious to know peoples' thoughts on this and if it will really take hold.
Even more specifically, will the surfboard become a cheaply-produced commodity made to be replaced often like (a lot of) skateboards?
