    Get a custom from a local for the 1000th time. They surf your local waves and will make it perfect for what you do. I had a 7s and it sucked.

    Lol.... You are STILL wrong. A POPOUT is a board that was made in a MOLD. There are popouts all through the market, but the 7S WAVE MAGNET is NOT one of them. Again it is a machine shaped, polyester, hand glassed board. No different, construction wise than a Rusty or a Channel Island. Is an AL MERRICK, a popout ? Now on to your question Why, would anyone build 40 different "funshapes" ?? Because it's fun !! I am a former surf shop owner, which I ran for 8 years. I'm also 60 years old, have some had knee injuries, and still try to surf every day there is a decent wave. The age and injuries forced me to go to a longer board. The designs have had different lengths, different nose configurations, different materials, different fin configurations, different tails, different concaves, etc. I have made, about every type of shape on the market, and scaled them UP. All simply experimentation. My son is a sponsored team rider, and I get all of my boards at a discount. I also keep them in pristine shape, and I flip one ,for very little money, into the next. So why not ? As I tell the old lady, I could be buying heroin.

    Anyway, we're debating about semantics. Cya

    And Fat babies don't fart,
    wild bears don't sh*t in the woods,
    the pope isn't catholic,
    whales don't sh*t in the ocean,
    one legged ducks don't swim in circles,
    a 4 pound robin isn't fat,
    etc...

    Did you really just compare Rusty's and CI's to GSI dog sh!t? Then try and youth it up by saying Cya? Are you on heroin? Dude leave the kiddie talk to those 45 years younger than you.

    I think yall are mistaking the technical manufacturing term of a pop out.......Popouts are the result of manufacturing where a liquid is blown into a mold and said mold is now the completed product, or it is stamped out of large piece of foam (additive vs subtractive manufacturing)

    vs someone using a blank (that was blown into a mold, additive manufacturing) and cnc machine shapes it down....This would be the subtractive manufacturing part, if I have my terms right

    so while you might call a 7s a popout in the common bro speak, people who know about manufacturing wont necessarily call it a popout as this is an inaccurate term since there are steps after it is 'popped out'

    All of this doesnt change the fact that if you are surfing a 7s near me I will backpaddle you till the sun goes down

    LONGTIMERIDER who claims its not a pop out, what is the difference in steps to create 7s and vs CI, also please ignore the angry posters as I am interested in learning. If the steps are the same then how can people call them different things? cause one has a bro name?
