You know which one I think and which one it applies to 8)

Yeah, and this is from 24/7 boardsports

"Board Riding Maui sent us the Paipo to test we loved it so much we adapted it to our technology, gave it our graphical loving touch and bought it to you in essence un-changed.
The Shinnster is the first Shinn not to be shaped by Mark Shinn."

Nothing bad, but also nothing to brag about.

I think it says something about the board that Mark Shinn who has a long history of loving that type of riding, thinks that the board is so good that he isn't just going to use it as something he is going to improve on, but rates it so highly that he makes a copy and gives Boardriding Maui the credit for the design.

M. Shinn did not invent the twintip either - do you want apologies for that too?

:thumb: all the more so as it is not even a "scoop" from 24/7 boardsports but merely a copy/paste from the Shinn web site which is already aknowledging that all the credit should go to Boardriding Maui :)

+ great news for me who lives in Europe by the way since Boardriding Maui was not selling this board here, and I've been dying to try one since I first saw it on a Boardriding Maui video!
