based in san diego...great boards, great guys behind the operation. a friend of mine got one back in 2005 when he was living out there. kept it when he moved back & rode it to it's death.
i'm sure zach can fill you in on further details that the website leaves unanswered. post pics!

They are the best high performance shortboards on the west coast in my opinion. Their team riders are young, but insane. They are doing sh** that people can't even define...
My custom shaper did glass work for them for years, and shaped out of their Point Loma warehouse. They just got a nice facility over off sports arena....
Plus ones are some of the best for sure.
team rider Austin Ware refers to plus one boards as "Magic Carpets"...

So, if you got one for $80 bucks and its in good condition, you easily just got a $250 board. easy.
The new ones off the rack are like 550+
My only recomendation is to be careful with the glass. Newer (2007+)plus ones are more durable, but the older models only had one thing in mind, taking flight off the lip, so they typically have thin layering.

So next time you are down in OC you should pop in to malibus and check out some of the plus ones there if they still carry them.
