GAH! wtf? What Costco is this?

Sharkbait said...

Oh, and the tag on the box says "Counter Culture Hand Shaped Short Boards" Ugh.

Surfsister said...

That's just wrong. Not a little wrong--completely wrong.

Yes, the costco here in Honolulu has carried them for a year at least. I know some people who have bought them as their "crappy board when I have visitors who want to learn how to surf". But still, everytime I go to Costco, I see one being bought. And to think how many shapers there are on the island....

Some of those shapes are actually ok being popouts! HOT!

Over the counter culture, gross.

Maui Costco has carried boards by Realm and Counter Culture for at least 5 years now.

They are decent and put surfboards within the reach of more locals with their low price tag.

I wish the big stores were not here but since they were allowed to come in, they may as well sell what is in demand.

it's all about economics. Ford, GM, Chevy vs. Toyota. We all know who is winning the battle.

Don't be stupid when you can buy 2 Costco boards for the price of 1.5 CI boards.

Costco $200/board
Channel Island $500+/board

Unless you are sponsored by the big names and getting all your boards for free, more expensive doesn't necessarily mean better. A high percentage of boards are NOT hand-made any more so why the HIGH price?

I don't write a leave a response, but I read some of the comments here "Costco Surfboards". I do have a few questions for you if it's allright.
Is it just me or does it look like like a few of the remarks
appear like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting
at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with you.
Would you post a list of every one of all your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
or linkedin profile?

Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same
subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you are interested feel free to shoot
me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

Excellent blog by the way!
