After searching a while I decided I wanted a walden compact disk to ride in the smaller waves. I also just realized its super cheap on the internet and was wondering if the deal was too good to be true or legit.
Thats the web page. I was wondering how everyone elses experience was buying off the internet?

Buying a board off the net
they'll probably screw you on the shipping

From my personal experiences, I would say that pretty much any company offering new boards will leave you pretty happy but steer clear of used boards unless you have a chance to check the board out before you buy it. Just my 2 cents from online board buying.
Complete headache that I'll never go thru again... unless I can find a G.Greenough spoon.

interesting...a knockoff Walden
from the site:
"Limited stock available at these discounts. Manufactured by Global Surf Industries and is one of the most popular surfboards in their line-up."
I wouldn't spend more than $400 on it.
Any shop that carries Global Surf boards (makes Waldens in Thailand) can order it for you for $555 which includes shipping and only takes about a week. I dont think they make the original CD anymore which might explain the cheap price. They now make the CD-4 which is slightly different.

I actually bought a 7'6" Walden Mini-Magic from them (Isle Surfboards) for like $375 with my "stimulus check". (Thank you Mr. Bush) Shipping was only $99. It's a great board especially since I was expecting an epoxy and it was glassed.
I also bought a retro fish under the Isle name, but my only real complaint is that it is glassed really thin, but it was new and cheap.
