Lots of other sick boards in stock too, stop by and check them out in person.

Used Board inventory now online

We’ve added the Used Board inventory to the Shop Inventory page on the web site:
The Used Boards are at the bottom, new boards are shown first then used boards. This is pretty much everything we’ve got in the shop so you can browse online in the comfort of your home (or classroom :D).

We also added a Paypal “Buy Now” button for those of you from out of state. The shipping is a flat $100 rate for any board. We’re just trying to see what the demand for this is so the shipping may be tweaked in the future to accommodate the difference in shipping between longboads and shortboards. If you’re interested in shipping multiple boards, just call the shop (321.868.3800) since shipping is cheaper with multiple boards per order.

That is all. Carry on…

Lots of new bamboo/carbon board inventory

Hey, just wanted to let everyone know that I just got in a new shipment of killer roundos, Baby Squash and fish shapes in at Neilson Surf Shop. It takes two months or more to make these boards and they are killer strong and light boards. Bamboo veneer decks, 10 oz. twist weave carbon fiber rails and double vacuum bagged bottoms. No need for Asian pop outs here as we have the real deals on great hand shaped boards.

Even if your not ready to buy one go by and pick one up to see how light they are…you can also see the current inventory online as well on da website.  Help keep us open and come buy a sick new or used board! thanks for such a great local surf community!

Today is a lay day for the ASP contest in Puerto Rico. Statistically Kelly can wrap up #10 here, but a showdown at Pipe would be awesome as well.

Watch it live here:
