o'neill has just jumped on the "green" bandwagon for sells during it's popularity. how concerned are surf companies in anything other than the "perfect wave" and "protect the tressles"? remind me again how environmentally friendly is your precious epoxy covered foam boards and synthetic wetsuits?!?!

thats not just plastic stuffing either ,thats overseas sweat shop plastic thats putting local plastic stuffing makers out of work.Those overseas workers have probably never even seen a real cardboard box .The soul of stuffing is gone, and its just sad.

"Does your plastic bag have soul?"

Once they make an "eco" Vencejo surfboard smaller than 6'4", then I'll consider it. And the 2007 models are, well..just let them know it's 2008.

they make wooden hollows smaller than 6'4. i watched a guy rip on a 5'4 blasa at pipe a couple years ago. mckevlin's should look into them as an option for those wanting one. (and able to pay up $$$, they are steep)
