leety hit it, JOB took it out at pipe, AND you can break it up to 4x, take it back and get a new one (Costco return policies) ....they are like 199.99 so that works out to about 50 bux a board. I have seen up to a dozen kids all riding them together at small gas chambers, all the kids laughing and hitting each other on the same wave.
They do have a place, as you can get multiple riders on a single wave for a gaggle of fun, but overall they aren't performance oriented (obviously)

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.

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 bought one of these for my wife to learn on. She was scared of my longboard after it hit her last year. She likes this because of all the foam. ( $ 80 at Costco)

a Wavestorm is the best $99 i ever spent for surf gear - this is why:
my 4 y/o catches waves on it, fights pirates, dives for treasure, plays with his buddies...been bounced off the deck and popped in the head by it and gets right back up on it and loves it. oh, it's also good for houseguests, wannabes, surf lessons, and small days. if you debate it's value on it's technical merits, you're missing the point.

I don't own one but I've seen plenty who do and they all seem to be having fun, and they earned that money most likely through hard work, so whatever they want to spend THEIR money on is fine with me. You'll never see me with one but who cares if someone else does? Hanna said it best though.... he's right
