First, that is a gorgeous board.

Second, he's right about the über wealthy and their desire for unique toys. Of course someone is going to buy one. This is a gilded age after all.

I'm in the market for a new board, but I'll pass on this one. Beautiful board though, brah.

"In Hawaii, surfing was the sport of kings. If designer handbags and iPads can sell for millions of dollars, how is an expensive surfboard unreasonable?"

Who sold their iPad or handbag for millions?

Well, it is nicer than the waterlogged shiat available on craigslist.

I'm not a surfer, but that sounds like a cool board, and it's a decently-well-written article.

"The board is designed to flex like a longbow and the net result is a beautiful combination of sound and vibration. It's audible and really pleasurable."

I am a musician, though, and this part intrigues me.

Costs $1.3 million ain't the same as worth $1.3 million.

Nice board, though.
