The Story of our Surfboards
At one point, we came across this South Coast Surfboards shop. It was like a garage where surfboards were shaped, painted, etc. We went in the store next door and actually met the owner. He talked to us about surfboards and skiing (he had been to Steamboat Springs), and we admired his custom-made surfboards in his shop. They were way out of our price range, but they were beautiful. He talked about custom boards versus the mass-produced ones that come from Taiwan or China, and he told us to take a look at his website. Specifically, he recommended his "La Southern Belle" board for me. We left after a bit, knowing that we would never spend that much on a surfboard (some were near $2000!), but it was cool to talk to him and find out some more about custom boards.
