Nikao obviously you must be a shredder you sound like a real surfer to me, you now all talk and stuff. Islands is changing to Santa Monica Surf Shop and they have great deals and a great board selection shaped by great shapers maybe even a few legend surfers who know a few things about surfing.Anyways we have found all our needs met at the surf shop and have found a great and staff on hand to help with any questions. I highly recomend Islands/Santa Monica surf to surfers at all levels of the sport. Its all about the fun! I agree with Bill.
