OTR white pu/pe with no lams. Usually a few hundred less than the resin + skull lam version.

Maybe they’re just a Mitch’s special.
Oh my bad I was thinking you were responding to my Campbell post. Mine has a red line but it’s 5 years old it was around $700. I guess saying nowhere near 1k was inaccurate.

I'm not sure why people would bitch about CC surfboard prices.

Isn't he a master shaper who deserves to be paid a fair, livable wage for what he does?

He puts out a quality product, no?

The consumer has a choice to go with him or someone cheaper, right?

Hasn't it been proven time and time again that surfboards are too cheap for the time and effort put into them?

Older Master shapers are the best bang for your buck when you consider experience and quality.

my Malcom Campbell was under 1k with beautiful color and glass job.

CC’s prices have gone way up. My little twin fish from him was nowhere near 1k
CC is in his 50s.

CC's prices have gone way up?

The price of everything has gone way up.

Including the price of living in Southern California (or pretty much anywhere else for that matter).

And I would guess CC is actually paying his taxes.

What's your solution?

Seems like just yesterday I walked out of CI SB with the sickest Moonlight glassed MTF under my arm.

Had this trippy red white blue USA meets cosmic spray job. Dank af and on sale for I think $350. I can’t remember because weed is tight but I know I laid down 5 bills max
