I work at a local shop in Ocean City. So to try and say that you are going to slide by the system and not pay for a board is somewhat sh**tty. Boards are not super marked up at all, things like shipping costs, oil prices and manufacture prices are the reasons for board prices, Do not blame the shops. The reason you get "hooked" up at a shop doesnt mean that you are the best surfer in town, it means that you send all your business to this one store. Even if you are landlocked you can still have a relationship with a shop, you buy one or more boards from the same shop the people will remember. But as long as you keep acting like there is no reason for loyalty and no reason to have local shops then enjoy attempting to make friends in the water. I am not trying to put you down but a true hardcore surfer that only cares about surfing would see the point of why an online sponsorship is lame.

You took the words right out of my mouth! Couldn't agree more!
also, i say "sponsorship" because that's what it's referred to. i see it more as a good deal that i'm getting through someone that is becoming a friend.
my main argument with surfingoc912 was the whole kook nonsense. i just couldnt see how someone could make a judgement based solely on where you live. and i suppsoe that everytime ive seen him post, it has sparked something inside of me to go ahead and argue against what he's saying. not the greatest reasoning, i know.
on a side note, ive most likely surfed with many of you in the water, and ive never had a problem with talking to any of you and never has anyone had a problem with the way i am when we're out there. i enjoy being out there with you all

Are we really gonna go here again surf boi??
I call you a kook because your a "sponsored" surfer, living nowhere close to the beach. Something just doesn't make sense here....I think we've figured it out.
By all means, I'm over it because as I've stated before, you're "sponsorship" I care nothing about. But if you really wanna stir the pot some more....keep going.
What about bodyboard sponsorships? Do any local OCMD shops sponsor BB'ders that anybody knows about?
