  • Other new models on Japanese site ?

    Noticed that the japanese firewire site had some other models not available on US/EU/AU sites.. Names like 'the transporter' .. anyone knows the story behind it? Who shapes them? and why only for Japanese market ?

    Boards are expensive in Japan so it's incentive for them to buy locally rather than buying from the US etc. it's common with surfboards and other items, CDs often have bonus tracks also.

      snowcrash yea i noticed some of those unique boards. I wonder if they are using a ghost shaper. Chris or FW intern, can you guys comment on this?

        They still come out of the Thailand factory. They are existing models with fancy tail shapes or tweaks mostly. I really like the look of the mirage and blurr!

        It was discussed on the old forum and that was the gist of it anyway.
