A few months ago we sent questions to surf shops regarding the industry. At the bottom of the questions we asked “If you would like to write a letter to the industry, tell a story or submit anything for this site. Please enter it here” Below is what our good friend Bill from Quality Surfboards Hawaii had to say…

“Surf shops need to start supporting core non-corporate surf brands. They need to lead the way in a sustainable industry. Competing with Macy’s is a lose=lose scenario. All the big corporate brands got there the same way. Hustle to the mom and pop shops, but the up and coming brands are being undercut by the big players. The buyers need to sack up and be different from Big Box.”

Sound advice from a sound guy. What do you think?
