    nice logs are really expensive. Shockingly expensive. Spent more shaping my last log than a plain white shorty would cost off the floor of a shop... 3 hardwood stringer blank, about 20lbs of glass and tint, finbox, 10" fin adds up!

    It's a pop out...to some people that matters to some it doesn't.I choose to support surfers making boards for surfers right here.

    Find someone that shapes, that doesn't have a big name -but has decent quality. That's what I did. I have my third board on the way from this dude, it's been so much cheaper I can't quit buying boards. -support your local shaper

  5. For the price of a GSI you can find a better deal on something used or even new depending on the shop. This time of year shops are trying to unload some boards, which means you can get a great deal on a much better board. The shape of that GSI is good but the construction is not. Over the life of the board it will cost you more money in ding repair & have a much lower resale value than other options out there. Depending on where you are a local shaper could be the way to go. Cruise craigslist, shops, etc. and just see what pops up. Just remember with surfboards you usually get what you pay for. Best of luck with the hunt!

    Purchased only 1 Gsi aloha board on a whim...was actually a great shaped board but seemed to be glassed lightly...has many pressure dings, more then normal, on rear of deck...still water tight and looks new except for those pressure dings. It's Gonna be my last Gsi board, not because it's a pop out, but the glassing was way to light...sure makes the board light and loved how it performed but it's still gonna be my first and last Gsi board. It's up for sale if anyone is interested.

    Like others, used May be the way to go or a good local shaper...and IMO, after the holidays, you may be able to get a nice board marked down.

    I think GSI is a pretty good company. I had the superfish and it is a very good board. the problem is that everyone jumps on the "support the local shaper" soap box. And thats fine but if someone pays for a gsi board, its most likely a pretty good board.
    the company took care of me when the superfish arrived with shipping damage paying for the repair plus some more.
