I do boards like these for Roberts. Huge pain in the ass. The machine (same machine MB uses) wasn't really designed to cut boards that small. Getting all your machine parts safely away from the blade of the your own machine is a no mistakes allowed kind of thing. I hate the grom boards.

Roundtrip airfare to Indo + board fees: $1500







Money you scrimped and saved to go on the boat trip of your dreams: $4000










The horrible feeling you get when you pull up to the dock after thirty hours of travel and meet your surf buddies for the next two weeks






























PRICELESS sick

what ever happened to slapping some cloth and glass on a broken longboard nose and then glassing some skegs on?

I don't know why the big brands waste money sponsoring groms. Most of them fizzle out. I'd have a rulle where I only make big offers on guys over 18 who are producing results or consistent content.

I guess at a basic level it makes sense to sticker up the groms and drop some freebies because other kids will want to be like them. yeah?

a 10-12 year old grom is about $3K+ for 3 years for the sponsor. get those kids posting on instagram and it's not a bad investment. the good money isn't going to come until they're about 15. still it's only five figures for the sponsor. not huge money for them. WAY cheaper sponsoring a bunch of groms than a CT guy. look at what Quiksilver did. cut all the adults and kept a grom team.
