Did a search for "epoxy surfboard" on ebay and found hundreds of boards in all shapes and sizes ranging from $200-$500 which is of course much less than you see in the shops. I know they are china boards which I could care less about, but for your average surfer can you really tell the difference between riding say an ebay-style $400 epoxy board like this:

Versus a more expensive "brand name" stick from the local shop? Any thoughts?
