they probably saw that you put down nuttjelly instead of your real name and said, fuck him, we're keeping the money

I dunno...I just buy mine second hand from the guy who ordered it too small.

BTW, that board is still my favorite.

Three months for me.  I'll give you local, but craftsman is still up for debate.

It's inversely proportional to
the amount of money you put down.

One of the problems is shipping.
Container cargo from Taiwan takes forever.
You could airship but it would add $$.
Speak to your board service representative at Costco for details.

I don't know how long the flaming fish took but whatever it was it was worth it.  That board is soooo fun.

I have never had one ready in less than 6 weeks.  I'm not part of the "In Crowd" and I'm not a 2ndlight regular so I think my orders always get bumped to the bottom of the list behind rippers like you all.

I think the Mayo I ordered in May was done in about 5 weeks now that I think about it so that was probably the fastest one.
