    Custom Order Deposits: Refund Seeking

    Believe me...I understand about life gets in the way sometimes. But we are mostly talking about a communication issue. I mean shapers are running a business whether they like it or not when you accept someone's money for a product. Not making time to respect the people paying their bills by not...

    Custom Order Deposits: Refund Seeking

    I think it's disrespectful and very poor business ethics. It depends on your stance. For me life is too short to be jerked around by people like that (especially if you are paying premium prices)and there are plenty of OTR options if you put in the time to find what you are looking for. I had an...

    Custom Order Deposits: Refund Seeking

    I recently pulled the plug on a custom and this is how I rationalized it. He quoted me 4 weeks. I'll understand if it takes double that time. But then you have to figure out where to draw the line and cancel. I did it at 12 weeks. I told him that my business must not be that important to him and...

    Ear plug recommendations

    I've been alternating between Doc's Pro Plugs and TYR. TYR's are very cheap and both work pretty good but I do find when I take them off there is a little moisture inside. I have not lost one yet in surf up to head high. If I know I'm going to be doing a lot of duck diving and it's bigger I...

    **BONZER THREAD 2014**

    Wow!! I was looking at pics of this board on another thread and it's what prompted me to ask on this thread. I am also 5'8 170# and just turned 50 on 4/20 Lol. How does she turn/cutbacks? I would imagine like any 5fin but how does the swing weight feel? Beauty!!!

    **BONZER THREAD 2014**

    Okay Bonzer nation, i've got a question for y'll. I'm on the hunt for a mid length to fill the gab between my 6'8 Bonzer5 Egg and 9'3 Parallax. 7'8 or 7'10 is what i'm thinking. I know the 5 fin egg is popular but what are your opinions and experiences with other models? POD? Mini Longboard...

    Hey man, so sorry, I'm just now seeing this. I actually got a MB5 from Jacob Campbell just recently. So I have no input on the Octafish. I would still love to get one but, between my Egg and MB5, I'm all set for now.

    I personally LOVE the Stiletto fins in my Manta. I got them with the board and there is no need to try anything else. I occasionally add the nub if I need more grip.

    Thunderbolt construction - anyone have feedback

    I also have a 9'3 Parallax. I cannot say enough good things about this board. I'm waiting to see if CJ comes out with a new mid-length. If not then a Moe is next on my list. I will still always have my traditional build Bonzers but, I'm really liking the Thunderbolt tech.
