I reckon you did well on the swap.Bought a CI mid OTR for $600. Rode in once, wasn’t what I was hoping for. Traded it for this. It’s in brand new condition.
So, $600 is what it cost.
Weird how a shaper who complains about low margins on boards also complains about shapers who charge a lot of money for boards.
I picked up on this in some of his recent videos. A slight disturbance to the force. Some of the people he interviews must think he's a total kook; they kind of talk a bit down to him and cut him off. The life of an influencer is kind of sad. Having to set up that camera on the beach, put a GoPro in your mouth, etc. Always strikes me as really sh!t.Real life Yuri is not always the nice guy you see. Have some stories... He seems to have been consumed by this new found "fame"
i totally agree. i think it was havoc who originally posted to "leave yuri alone" and i just found it so funny that i've kept up the tradition any time someone starts to throw shade. i dunno, maybe there is a part of me that feels a little bad for him. the guy is so kook he doesn't even know he's kook. watching him interview a shaper and show clips of himself surfing and then asking for feedback was giving me low key Borat vibes like i almost couldn't watch it.Forgive me @Aruka but I don’t understand the point of his reviews. His level is so low and the typical waves he surfs are so poor, you don’t learn anything about the boars by watching him surf them. What he describes regarding design mostly is not what his surfing is capable of showing. It’s like the bizarro version of Noel Salsa / Trestles conveyor belt consistency.
Many people ar super harsh on others's surfing until they see themselves on video.ya the asking for surf technique advice while talking boar design on yuri’s part is strange. he needs a surf coach and keep design separate.
anyways, all u young shredder duus just wait til u have a wife, kid, mortgage, full-time job, inlaws, and u will see shades of yuri in urself…
anyways, yuri is the poster boy for the adult learner covid era beginner surfer.
The internet has ruined realityI'm beginning to think some of you don't understand the sheer magnitude of Yuri's influence in surfing. He will hold a large piece of real estate in surf history as a result of his performance driven board reviews with intellectual deep dives into revolutionary design characteristics. His legacy will be comparable to Simon Anderson introducing the thruster.
Rightly so however they don't then proceed to start a Youtube channel reviewing surfboards showing themselves surfing in it.Many people ar super harsh on others's surfing until they see themselves on video.
For the price of an Album with no fins, from GG you can get a board with color, two different sets of hand made fins with enough money left over to pay for a flight to Nicaragua in August and still have beer money when you get there. Plus it’s closer for me to pick the board up at LAX than drive down to OC.6’
Sure, whatever is convenient for you
Let’s do 5 boxes and cover all bases
