We learned our lesson again here recently with some surfboard purchases. We were due for some new boards... and Mr. Star purchased a firewire. Against my advice mind you, but it is new technology and he wanted to try it... We had always purchased our boards from Tim Nolte, a local shaper in OBX (except for the board we traded a 6 pack for... everybody has one of those boards!). Well, Mr Star wanted to love his new firewire but just couldn't. So he sold it and went back to Nolte and had two boards shaped for him.
|Nolte boards can't be beat.|
By the way, I must shamelessly now plug Tim Nolte surfboards located in OBX. Top quality. Always. We have a family of his boards and we now refuse to buy any other. Why fix what isn't broken?
This Holiday season... as you may be making more purchases, keep local artists and businesses in mind. You are directly supporting our culture and local economy, and everyone wins.
Back to painting some furniture now...
