I'm not sure what I think of this. I'm very happy for Ben and the founders. I remember him putting his ideas about turning MSW into a business on this forum many years ago. However, my gut instinct is that it is another sad day for the art and the craft of surfing. IMO, it SHOULD be made up of local people with a quirky website in Devon, it SHOULD be a cottage industry of shapers dialled into the needs of their local conditions. I would prefer it if it wasn't multinationals out for dominance and profit. I guess surfing is just following the path worn and paved by football CEOs. I just always believed that surfing was different.

I'll take a deep, ponderous breath, put my rip curl wetty on, take my Merrick out for a paddle & try to forget all about it :wink:

Latest.............if there is anyone left out there thats not just interested in dogs, pigs and even a fricking sheep surfing........

Surfstitch shares have been suspended for at least 3 months due to the shareholder class action.
The market value has plunged from $590 million in November 2015 to just $18.9 million.

The quantum of the claim remains unknown.
