    Or visa versa, I like to surf up there too, it's way more scenic and serene and usually breaks better on smaller days. And I don't mind the rocks to the south of the point. Maybe Wednesday or Thursday when the next swell hits.

    So, what do you guys think a local custom poly LB should run?

    $1000 about. And that is if you get what you "really really want".
    Pocket change, really, if your board please you. Advice: don't focus on money when custom ordering; focus on outcome. Makes shaper much more willing to provide you exactly what you specify. A few bucks will never make a difference to you if you are out surfing on a beautiful day and your new board functions EXACTLY as you dreamt. "La Vida es sueno", Calderon De La Barca

    Yep, and it's still in great shape after nearly 4 1/2 years of frequent riding. I've made a couple of very minor repairs along the way but mostly preventative stuff.

    Can't disagree with being focused on getting what I want...that is exactly what I am doing with this. Totally agree with you. I was just curious. I have not gotten a custom since 97 on a LB (paid $375 then). I see the prices on the stock boards in shops. I pay $4-500 on custom SBs. I figured at least $600 on LB. I doubt I will pay $1000 though...

    From what I've seen, starting at mid-$800 - $900 range.
    But I found my Frierson HPLB on Craigslist for $400.

    I spoke to him (email over the weekend). You are accurate. I am actually leaning towards the HP1.
