    The Quiver

    Has anyone used this yet? www.thequiver.com Looks like you can rent boards from other people, not just surf shops etc. Seems like better quality boards, but I'm not 100% sure how it works.

    It seemed lame at first but then you read the how it works section and it is actually pretty cool. Super progressive idea...

    Yeah, it will probably take some time to get momentum. Nothing listed in my area....

    But yeah, super cool idea. I think this could eliminate a few threads per week...

    Going to (insert name here), who will rent me a board that isn't an NSP or soft top? threads.

    Yeah, seems like there's not a ton out there just yet, but I could pick off one or two in my area this weekend maybe to test it out.

    This is a great idea especially when traveling. If I knew I could always rent a good board I would hardly ever take my own. Would be cool if this catches on and expands.

    would be nice if it got going. always complained there wasn't really a way to try a board out before making a big investment in one. dont know willing people would be to put newer boards on there, but looks like there are some decent ones on there so maybe. also would be nice if it took off in puerto rico/central america for trips to not have pay airlines.

    I just checked my boards through to El Salvador and it only cost me 45 bucks so round trip that's ninety and I get two boards some airlines screw u though. I don't ever see it catching on in non first world countries because if a kid in Nicaragua has a board it's his only board and he is not going to rent it out. In te states it could catch on.

    Yeah, there's enough rentals in most of those destinations though. How'd you get 45/way for baggage? What airline? That's cheap !
