You mean? Assume the position??
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.

By the way; Ten years ago Or there about Polyester did hit $1300 per 55 gallon drum.
When Covid hit everyone screamed that they shouldn't, couldn't, wouldn't work from home. OMG, who would possibly enjoy not getting up early, not commuting to the inner city office with the hordes, not dealing with office politics, traffic issues and petrol prices.
Yesterday I heard that 40% of job applicants wouldn't work for a company that won't let them work from home. And a lot of 'work from home' people aren't even getting out of bed to do work. Drag that laptop over here and I'll do my work while I watch Netflix for the next 8 hours.
Same with petrol, they made it too expensive and now there's a race to develop E vehicles and once there's a good range of E-vehicles on the market, who the hell would bother going back to get screwed at the bowser ?
Moral to the story is that when things change, initially there's chaos, i.e. Clark foam, but after a period people will accept that standard resins are too financially, environmentally and morally expensive and embrace more bio/ green alternatives and never go back.
By constantly upping the price, they've shot themselves in the dick.
Life should be as smooth and honest as a wave offers itself.
So many people on this website were saying the same thing ten years ago; "embrace more bio/green alternatives and never look back.". Still waiting for that to happen. These 4x4, diesel guzzling, loud straight six inch boys up here in the Northwest are not gonna give up those Dodges, Fords and Chevys for a quiet puny little electric. May get you from 0--60 in 2 seconds, but won't pulll a fallen tree out of the middle of the road. Ten months ago the U S was energy independent and had the cleanest air and water of any developed country on Earth. Same old "greenie weenie" $#!t
They don't call tornadoes, tornadoes any more as they whip thru the "wetlands of Nevada". Everything is going up $$ wise, but only because of current administration policies. Crisis to Crisis. I wonder how much "Super Sap":will Go up? Are they still even in business?
the rednecks where I live ain't never gonna give up their Tonka Toy lifted diesel pukers until the penalty price tag on the fuel forces them to.
Gotta turn off the oil tap getting sent through the tail pipes, however...need to keep diminishing oil reserves for plastics...no oil, no plastics, no consumer goods
Eventually, the price of resins will go high and stay high simply because at some point the demand for it will dramatially shrink, and less demand = smaller production and higher prices...reason being CNC production is on the near horizon and it will be a game changer for so many products currently made offshore.
CNC will eventually service the consumer side of the surfboard biz, selling to the 35 million surfers clogging the lineups around the globe. Buy their fave pro model on Amazon, sent to the local CNC hub where it's fabricated from raw polymers...shaper gets paid for his shaping algorithm, not much different than a book sale, Amazon takes their slice, CNC get's paid, brown truck drops off at the front door...
Will always be a custom market, however, for those who consider surfing more than just the act of standing on a board...and those boards will cost more than ever...and should
