One down...


... one hundred more to go.
The mass manufactured pop-out surfboard brand known as Anacapa or more accurately Anacrapa is no more. While there may still be an Anacapa shop in Ventura, the boards are out of production. In case you are unfamiliar with the brand, Anacapa is a company that is owned by the nefarious Global Surf Industries. Capitalizing on the name of Al Merrick by using a few of his shapes, these boards are considered much inferior due to the use of unskilled labor and inferior materials.

Young Jedi, indeed. Words wisely you must choose. Ridicule you they will.

Yeah, I kind of expected some one to point out the "Al Merrick's name" comment.

You are a funny guy. Forget that your wetsuit, boardshorts, car, gas and home electronics are from overseas, just keep hating on foreign boards. Way to make a stand Norma Rae.

My wetsuit, boardshorts, car, gas and home electronics aren't putting a stop to the development and progression of surfboard shapes. They are also not selling $50 boards for $600, creating a mark up real shapers can't compete with. I guess the only stand you take is for late 70s Sally Field movies. How did you like Smokey and the Bandit Anononuts?
