    I know Canyon longboards come straight from our little communist friends over seas like half the stuff we sell in this country. Its tough to compete with somebody who makes pennys on the dollar and dosent understand the first thing about surfing but can field strip an AK-47 blindfolded in seconds. I can't say how good they are but when it comes to Surf Boards - BUY AMERICAN. PLEASE.

    canyons boards are so bulky and have huge chunky rails , they have a bunch of um at rk's for a really good price like 300 bucks brand new and the glassing seems to be decent with a gloss coat but overall they seem like boards geared towards beginners.

    Bad Boards

    I used to have a 9'0 Canyon. It was the worst board ever. They are indeed shaped overseas. Mine broke in moderate surf down in Chincoteague, Va. I guess if used on smaller surf it would be okay, although pretty clunky.

    Go with an Austin surfboard

    have done a few repairs on them, the glass job is horrible. Way too thick in some spots, and sanded almost all the way through the glass in others

    funny, kona sports came up on one of my searches. they're retailed at 375ish. Those cheap prices tell a whole lot. I wonder if Rusty is making money on it?
