    Theres no way a Kookbox is worth the price - Joel Tudor may be one of the best longboarders to have ridden a wave but his boards are overpriced. I'd take a Brian Wynn, Tim Nolte, Legend, or an Austin Board over a Kookbox anyday - even if I had the money to blow !

He shapes the Kookbox label and he and Skip Frye shaped together in Pacific Beach, both shaping forever. He doesn't have the Skip Frye price but all the skills. Hank puts out some of the best Longboards/Fish in the world...sans Skip!
    It's shocking just the used Skip Frye's bring premium dollars; just for giggles trolled the S.D. craigs list. A 30 year old Frye rode hard and in crappy shape for $500 then on the high end $2800 for an almost new Frye Eagle. Some shop near La Jolla specializing in used Frye's prices started at $1600. Skip shaped most of my boards just wished I have kept them especially the Fish.

    Mayn dawg. Get money dawg........but anyway

    Its the surfer that does the surfing. Ive surfed these bro brah 1000 dollar boards and then ive surfed NSP with plastic fins and a screwed on traction pad. Both do fine if you match the board with the conditons.

    Its more about shape and length than bro bra hipster factor. And its great to get two boards instead of one expensive board that you are scared to break.

That price is still unrealistic to most surfers & if they shelled out that kind of money for a board, it would be rarely used or a "collector" board.
    I absolutely agree with you chuck.That is a high price for surfboards and not that many people have that kind of money or would ever deem it reasonable. There are definately more fords on the road than ferraris . And thats why all ford drivers look over at the ferrari when sitting at a stop light. Its never the other way around.

    Ferraris are maintenance nightmares that are not very reliable and mostly driven by douche bags who absolutely are way over their head when they get behind the wheel (I've had a lot of dealings with them over the years and no I've never owned one). If you definitely want to get where you’re going - drive the Ford. I'd take a Ford GT (no not the Mustang) over a Ferrari any day. Kinda applies to some of the guys with the designer type boards.

    bro my dad owns a ferrari and he is not the type to own one. he inherited it from his dad who owned half of fisher price toys. and they would always work on it themselves and it still ran but it needs work done on it now and my dad doesnt have the time to work on it plus we dont have the garage space to put it.

    What it boild down to in the end is Style and personal preference. I rather buy a longboard from someone who has been made the template for which all others copied.
    I just prefer to keep it simple and clean , Boards, shorts , wetsuits and my style. I keep is simple clean

    i drive a ford and i make my own boards. Doesnt get any cheaper than that. but i dont think guys that drive ferraris are all deuche bags. if you got the money get the toy. nothing wrong with having what you want and if you feel the board is worth the price by all means. i do agree though that sometimes having a board of that price is for fluff. So in order to make my point lets not use ferraris. you seem to hate them. so instead lets use surfboards, lets say the difference between a **** brewer and a rusty. There is definately no comparison between the two. both are good but one has a reputation that far exceeds the other in every category except price. I personally feel a **** brewer is worth the price. Simple business, if you are crazy busy, your prices arent high enough. people must be paying what these guys are asking or they wouldnt be in business.
