"Surftech is a company with its roots firmly planted in surfboard shaping. From Tom Blake to Dale Velzy, its heritage is the noble pursuit of building a better surfboard. It is the soul-quest of our company. Shapers deserve Tuflite because it frees them up from production shaping and allows them to create! Surfers deserve Tuflite because it gives them performance that lasts. Tuflite - it is more than a core, it is exactly what the shaper shaped for you."
WTF?! how is a popout, made on a machine in china exactly what a shaper made for you?
Think about it before going to costco/walmart for you next board.
