Excludes Surfboards

National Buy Local Day

Today is National Buy Local Day. Be sure to support your local mom&pop surf shops. Please support your local shapers and glassers.

Why Buy Local?

• Local businesses produce more income, jobs, and tax receipts for local communities than big box stores do.
• Local businesses are more likely to utilize local ads, banks and other services.
• Local businesses donate more money to nonprofits and are more accountable to their local communities.
• Supporting local businesses preserves the economic diversity of our communities and the unique character of our neighborhoods.
• Supporting local businesses is good for the environment, because it cuts down on fuel consumption. Buying locally produced goods reduces the need to ship goods from thousands of miles away and also cuts down on the distances shoppers travel.

    if moonlight would move to the west coast I would shop local 100% of the time.
    Maybe, you could bring a couple of good shapers with you.

    Eh How’zit and Aloha to all the Braddah and Sista Surfa’s out dea!

    So if a local surf shop, say a warehouse in Santa Cruz CA, owned and operated by local SC surfers, designs, shapes, and sells PVC sandwich construction epoxy surfboards, they are making “Pop-Out’s” and thus undermining local surf shop business and board makers and the immediate community / neighborhood and board makers who exclusively go the PU / Glass route? Lot’s of good boards out there by reputable board makers who utilize both PU/Glass as well as epoxy construction…I surf both PU/Glass and Epoxy boards…surfing is surfing…I’m not convinced that my purchasing one or the other is undermining any local shops…it really seems like a pissing match…and having some Backwoods Podunk Hill Billy South Carolina surf shop doing their anti pop out drive, WTF with that?…and the attitude that if you’re caught surfing on an epoxy board on a certain day and time of the year, people will tell you to take your epoxy board out of the water…yeah braddah, whateva’s…I would like to see some uppity Haole boy tell me to go home ‘cus I am out surfing on my epoxy Fish…you’d have to lay hands on me to leave the water, and that would be a life changing mistake for you…or anyone. I don’t care if people are out surfing on friken floor mats made out of Leggo’s…people should just surf, have fun, kick back, and not harass anybody out in the line up.

    Aloha a’ Hui Ho!
