    Surftechs aren't terrible they're just commercialized. I have a firewire because they're wicked strong. They are also commercialized but better than surftechs IMHO. I will support local shapers if I find one that fits my needs and the price is decent.

    I would never even look twice at that board in the OP. looks like a dog.

    I gotta disagree - surftechs are terrible. They're extremely durable and look great, but they're stiffer than a 2x4 and slow. Couldn't get any real speed out of the one I had and turns felt very strange/forced.

    not really hating on wavestorms so much as I'm wondering why so many decent surfers are buying them and riding them at the best spots...seems to me, if you can afford surfing at all, you can afford a real board made in USA. Where's the pride? Beginners learning and farting around on them at lesser quality spots is fine.

    They are not easy to ride in the tube. it's a challenge. It seems to me if you have the wave mastered, riding a wavestorm will make it more challenging, AKA JOB at pipe on one

    not gonna lie, I will defend wavestorm

    for one it KILLS your ego....I mean how 'cool' is it? not very, but how fun is it? VERY
    it strips down a lot of the BS and brings you back to a more childish and SHARING state of waveriding

    I see your point. I have a 6'10" Yancy Spencer (Boardworks edition - just like surf tech) and I don't have any of these complaints. on the flip side this is a fun shape and it is not meant for high performance but it does ride the barrel well.
