I like your post, you have great ideas, especialy about selling to china, your right thats a huge market.
and yes, your Thai freind is telling the truth, I have lived there(well close , actually china) for many years and when I go to the beach its only me and the guys that work in my factory(chinese) that actually go out swimming or surfing.
I guess the main reason people dont sell to china is that there dollar is weak,,
the same reason you would Not buy a longboard made in ENGLND for 2100 EURO
that will do me for know.
...Gone with the wind!
Dead Shaper, Thanks for taking the time to write in my post, Your very well written pieces are good reading of someones facts and or opinions.
and I definatly expected some people to post here with all the for and againsts , If i didnt want the coverage I would have posted an AD.
Yes its bussiness, not personal, out side of this enviroment we would probably enjoy a beer down the local pub, I take no direct offence to what you write,
and please take none to mine, The internet is always full of missinterpritations and can get people fueled up, when no misdeamenor was meant.
But perhaps there is some people out there, maybe in the swaylocks community that has thought about this way of making money.
If so , keep the PM's rolling in , or Email me for more info
(again, I will never speak of or write about our relationship or discussions)
What is art without conscience? Mitch, there is more to life than the pursuit of the dollar. I agree with deadshaper, in this endeavour, I hope you fail.
Since this is a commission offer, you don't have enough confidence in your business plan to invest your own money. Taking advantage of the lack of sophistication of your victims is heartless.

least one friend that admits loving to "push the crap out of the
bottoms of boards that will dent easily".
I take it your friend has never heard the term vandalism.
Plead the 5th
can you supply fins and grips and leggys as well. sort of package deal. how much per unit for a glassed board with my logo, poly finish coat, and fiberglass fins(fcs type plugs). also done to my design which i can supply as BRD files. what would be the mimimum purchase? is 20 or 30 boards too small and order.Also would you be interested in manufacturing my composite boards?
.....space for rent.......cheap!
Just order a couple of containers I'm sure you will sell 100's of models to the world. You can export everywhere!
Mitch sounds like a really smart business man. He can make you a rich guy!
Sounds like you have mastered the AKU program?
