    Also they are more heavily glassed, hence some of you saying they feel heavier.

    Support your local shaper, don't buy pop outs.
    Buy a nice used surfboard- reduce, reuse, and recycle.
    Leave a smaller footprint behind you. Your children will appreciate it.
    These anacapa boards are cheap, and will breakdown quicker, landing in a landfill quicker... a great gift for your kid. Future generations will thank you for saving that $100.

    A better gift for your kids would be to buy a nice used one and spend some quality time together teaching them how to fix their own dings. Or maybe buying some cheap foam at Home Depot and building one with your kid and enjoy that experience even more. Hell, you can build a brand new board with supplies from Home Depot for under $120. How much was that piecacrapa from overseas?

    Surfing isn't always about the time you spend on a wave. Spend time with your kids and let them appreciate riding different crappy old boards from garage sales... single fins, old twins, what ever. They don't need "Brand New" everytime.

    By the way thats not a good deal. With a budget of $375 and an hour or two you could find 5 used boards in the surf shop racks just about anywhere that are better than an Anacapa. new doesnt = good. It just means new.

    Thai boards ...

    Anacapa, Webber, etc are made at the Cobra factory in Thailand. I have shaped and glassed several of my own boards. I currently ride a 6'6" imported Webber Fatburner and it's a nice board. It's a better shaping job ( done on a CNC machine like most domestic boards so its perfect - then finish sanded by hand ) and a better glass job than I could do. There is nothing wrong with the craftsmanship. The Thai guys might not surf but they shape and glass all day long and they have it down pat.
    The shapes incorporated at these facilities are proven designs. If you want a beautiful work of art with tricky resin tints go see a talented limited production glass shop and you'll get what you want. If your budget is limited and you just want a board that works well some of the imports are a good option.

    Off topic, but I'm not sure being shaped by a CNC machine guarantees perfection - just replication and speed. The CNC is perfectly capable of spitting out 10 boards per hour that won't necessarily work for you.
