    I agree with not using Phase 5 and cheap in the same sentence.

    I was just texting a surf shop that was selling some 1-2yo P5 boards. Some new. Some demos. They were asking 30% off MAP price. So that would be list of $989 > 30% > $692. Yikes - for a 2018 board that is now discontinued. Thus why they still have them.

    Then again last winter I found a new left-over 2019 Matrix for under $600.

    Must be HUGE mark-up.

    Even when Wakemakers has a sale, they are probably averaging $700ish per board.

    I didnít mean it to sound that they are cheap, they make a great board. But you can usually find a deal on a phase 5 vs soulcraft or similar. Iíve bought a few over the years and always found a last years model or sale and got a decent deal. But Iíve always had to pay close to full price for soulcraft unless it was a blem. All great boards though.

    Just like the high wake boat demand in 2020, surf boards are the same. Not sure how many last-year models will be for sale this winter, but I'm always looking.

    surf boards have become stupid-expensive. the p5 danielo pro we have was had back in '09 for $325 shipped to my door and that was in a custom color they made for us. our hl broadcast was closeout end of year at $150. in 10 years pricing has tripled.
    guess it's good old american supply and demand at it finest. sure don't see a lot of other big ticket items increasing the last 10 years like the wakeboat and supplies segment.

    Found them last year looking for some things and they are fantastic and helpful. Went out of their way, IMO, to work something out on a backordered item for me and I have returned for their help several times. They have brick and mortar stores in California so while not local to me, it is to someone I guess.
