Good for Bert and Greg. Listen, if we got the real price for manufacturing a surf board we wouldn't be in this mess. We sell surfboards new boards for $300.00 and then complain about how we don't make any money. 4 days of hard work and $150 in material only nets you $150. We caused the problem "bro deal" and now others are making sound business decisions, and trying to make some cash.
Let's face it surfboards should be selling for $800-$1K. Heck my buddy just got got a new custom shaped Chapman Brewer 9 '1 gun. Air Brushed by Alexander, glassed to perfection. It was shaped post Dec 5. Whopping cost $620.00. You ever see the little rusted out car Craig Chapman drives around in, and he makes fantastic surfboards. We are doomed.

once you truly understand your overall petty insignificance to the overall big picture of life and death the you can really focus on doing some good where it really counts.

BTW, why do I care? Why do I post these words?
Because we are human beings and expressing our thoughts and sharing with them others is one of the things we do. I don't expect anyone to agree with me or be influenced by me or take any specific action or anything like that. I just enjoy reading other people's opinions and figure maybe there are others out there who might enjoy reading mine. It's human.
