let's not spill the baby with the bathtub
- couple of things here. Nobody suggested that we have to go all the way rather being AWARE of the impact how OUR stuff is been made, distributed and disposed. If you don't care - well, sad, but so be it - and if you care, no need to call these people names and imply an 'extreme' agenda.
Sure, the industry is small. But let alone we don't associate us with this industry alone. Most of us are in related water sports as well (kayak, surfing ...). If we don't ask the industry, they won't supply us. It's that simple. 10 years ago nobody gave a rat's ass about a hybrid now they sold like hot cupcakes.
On a personal note: I like living in CA. Not a perfect state (but show me one which is) but a think tank when it comes to NEW stuff,with a different approach. Lots of water sports and especially surfing have deep roots here. So I would bet that the next big (green?) thing will come from us?
So, I said in the OP: Just wondering where's everybody's mind on this?
