I hate it. there are some good responses on why such as Doc Classics. But if you want to understand what it is like, imagine coming surfboard shopping with me (this actually won't happen all my boards are custom, but lets say I wind up breaking my board and my spare in one day) I drag you along to three or four shops. And go through their entire board rack, even looking at boards I am not going to buy because I don't need that type of board. I will then narrow it down to the boards in the size range I want. I will eye the bottom contours and the rocker ( curve along bottom in profile) foil (distribution of thickness along the length) rail volume, what kind of fin set up it has (number of fins and fin system) then I will look at the bottom contours. I will get all excited about certain boards that to you look no different than the other one to you. I don't care what the art looks like or what color the board is or what the brand it is. Does that sound like fun for you? Unless you are a hardcore surfer, probably not. That is what clothes shopping or furniture shopping or most shopping is to guys. "I thought we were here to get you a dress? why are we looking at purses? That dress looks like the last one and you looked good in both. Why am I here?"
