Hansen’s was pretty empty today considering the number of racks they have available.

what day do the shops get deliveries?

Honestly with the long turn around for customs it’s worth to shell out the extra bucks for boards in shops.

One of my best if not best ever boards was an OTR Channel Islands. Tried to replicate it with XTR and it was a miss. Well not a true miss but just different. That replica still goes great its just different.

Same at my locals. They had rearranged to make it seem more full but they had probably half the boards they normally have.
yep, every other, or every 3rd rack in use, chit like that.

fully stocked with no swell, it’s usually 2-3 boards per rack. I’d estimate they’re around 30-40% max capacity at best.

This seemed like what was going on at Hansens when I stopped by today. Not empty by any means, just more spread out than when I bought my last two boards there, like you said 2 boards per rack in many cases instead of mostly full.

Did get to feel up a 6' 8" and 7' 0" ...Lost Crowd Killer which I had been mildly interested in. Also felt up the somewhat similar Seaside & Beyond. They have a bunch of Machado's / Firewire's in stock. A guy looked to be purchasing a Seaside while I was there.

Oh yah, no shortage of made in Asia pop outs in the back racks by the window but the usual large stock of CI, Lost, and other “HP” brands in the front row of racks were MIA.

same deal as Surfride. only stock was lots and lots of FireWire and HS.

Clairemont surfshop kind of picked thin. Two 5'7" fishbeards and a few random boards.
