ADVERT - SUP WHAREHOUSE - SALE " VEX PROFUSION CARBON SUP" FROM $699 - SAVE $300

YAHOO - I WANT THE 9'6" BY 30" WIDE - DROVE UP ON 27TH JUNE ( 3 HOURS ) TO TWEED HEADS
WITH $700 CASH - GOT THERE AND WAS TOLD NOooo! THAT BOARD IS NINE HUNDRED AN SOMETHING!

F:CK - DROVE THREE HOURS ALL EXCITED AND CANNOT BUY IT --- YOUNG BLOKE WAS APOLOGETIC BUT I WAS FEELING PISSED OFF.

HAD A YAK WITH HIM ABOUT LITERAGES AND CARBON BOARDS LIGHTNESS - REMEMBERING "SUPCHICKADEE'S" REFERENCE ABOUT MATURE AGE GENTS - BOUGHT A 9'2" EVOKE - **** PLASTIC FINS SUPPLIED! WAS FRETTING ALL THE WAY HOME - REALLY STABLE ALL ROUNDER BUT HAVE I TRADED OFF SURFABILITY?

THREW SOME OTHER FINS IN AND WENT OUT THIS MORN TO TRY OUT - STAYED OUT TWO AND A HALF HOURS AND HAD A BLAST - CAUGHT HEAPS OF GREAT WAVES - SURFS REALLY WELL, A FEW COMPLIMENTS FROM THE PRONE CREW EVEN.

WHOLE EXERCISE HAS TURNED OUT REALLY WELL - BUT I STILL THINK YOUR ADD SHOULD LIST PRICES FOR DIFFERENT SIZES AS I THINK IT IS MISLEADING
. STEVE PS - YOUR SALES STAFF ARE GREAT!

Feel for you, BUT in fairness to Surfboard warehouse (not sup warehouse) it does say from and if you click on the desired size it will tell you how much. Detail I'm afraid old chap

Misleading for sure. But every company does it.


Ive got a 9'2 evoke super stable platform a little thick in the guts for my liking but 2 years on and its its only had 1 repair. I still take it out when I need a thrasher or its super rough.

The stock fins are rubbish I wouldn't even bother opening them.

I don't think it's any different to what others do to be fair . How about flight prices for example. They do include the word "from".
I know where you are coming from because a similar thing happened to
me when I was considering the Vex. It's because you get all excited like a kid in a candy store and you want to press "buy"
