I guess if you want to surf around and crash into alot of summer tourists then this is your best option. Otherwise, I don't see the point. I guess its relatively inexpensive <$300 and might be a nice beginner surfing option for a 12-13 year old to cut their teeth on. From a marketing standpoint it makes sense, because its alot less intimidating to handle for someone who never surfed to buy this and try to see what they can do on it. I see alot of wealthy teen-age and pre-teen boys (and girls) making their rich daddies pick one up on a summer vacati and ride it a few times and then have it sit in their garage for decades.

You know what, if these "The One" boards might actually do really well as rentals if the resort beaches allow them. Charge $15-20 a day and its paid off in about 3 weeks. If its durability can hold up for a whole summer of abuse, you've got alot of profit as a rental operation, and all of your kids, fat balding men etc. can easily fork out $20 to try to stand up on the thing and pretend to be a surfer for one day of their life.
