West of the Atlantic. East of the ICW.
Saw one of these yesterday. Who in their right mind would spend $600+ for a soft top? How long before it falls apart?

IMHO the best soft surfboards ever made are the Surflight construction invented by Mike Croteau and perfected by Jim Richardson and Jeff Johnson at Surflight. They've been out since the early 90's and I still considered state of the art.

this is early 2000's
hand built polyethylene/polystyrene (closed cell) foam blanks
