Why to get a custom board from DRIFT
After doing some research and shopping elsewhere previously, I decided to give Drift a try for my new board. I live somewhat a ways away so gave a call to the shop. Talked to Rob. He went out of his way to accommodate me. Spent all the time needed on the phone, makes every customer feel important. It was then that I knew I’d be doing business with him. Some months went by and a called again now that I was ready to buy a board. He remembered who I was and what we were talking about from 2 months earlier. I took the drive to his shop the next week and met him. Bought an amazing board from him built by Brother Surf Crafts. It’s the best board I’ve ever ridden. Rob was so great and knows his sh$t cold. He’s the real deal. Has such a passion for the sport, he always takes the time to explain the hows and whys of everything. Also, he cares about small business. He’s in it for the love and that comes through in what he sells. My board is built by two brothers out of Delaware who grew up surfing east coast waves and know how to build a good east coast board. You call up the company and you talk to the owner on his cell phone. That’s the kind of brands he carries. All very well made, environmentally conscious companies that put out great product. My board had a ding in it from the start, so he gave a discount and fixed the ding. Yes his repairs can take a little time, but they are worth waiting for as they come out awesome in the end. Everything he does is done right. He made a life long customer with me, and is a great guy. Highly recommend DRIFT!
