    Signs of the times
    Yea... on the plus side... decent design for a small to medium wave longboard. Nice gloss and polish job, and a cool retro paint job. On the minus side... that little concave didn't do much for me in terms of generating lift for noseriding, and a 9'0 would be a little short for me... I like 'em 9'2 to 9'6. My brother-in-law has one, which I had a chance to ride last weekend, and I was surprised how lightly glassed it was. Good for cranking it around in small surf (hence the 2+1 option), but in terms of durability... less than ideal. The thing was repaired in at least a dozen places. Not surprised... typical "disposable board" pu/pe construction. Like Brian said, "sign of the times."

    Robert August boards are not what they used to be for sure. I'd take a Nolte, Legend, Wynn, or Austin over a August any day. $650 to $750 max unless you get lucky.
