2012 Gentemstick Big Fish 164

Hey guys, have a brand new (unridden) gentemstick big fish 164 2012 that I got at the end of last season to replace a 2011 big fish that had an issue.
I understand many will scoff at the price, a new one plus shipping would put you around 2k. Probably the best powder shape around, rode one in Japan for months.

$1200
Located in Australia, will ship anywhere.

You know I was wondering what your reply would be as I was starting this thread. Products like this obviously aren't aimed at everyone, but then no one is telling you to buy it, its just an option. I bought mine in Japan because I could easily afford it at the time and to me it was worth an extra thousand dollars after riding one at a demo day. To you it isn't and that's fine, but they sell out a year in advance and I have to advertise it somewhere. This seemed like a good place to start.

And thank you for not answering my question. I seriously want to know what makes them cost 1,500 bucks more than other specialty powder sticks.

Judging from the Gentemstick website, id say that the costs are associated with the manufacturer using money for 'inner peace' or some reallllllllllllllly good weed

The flagship shop°«s construction started in November 2003 and was completed in June 2004. The simple post and beam structure uses thirty-two 24cm square log cut from 30cm diameter Canadian Pine. The beautiful cross curve roof, rising up to 11m in height, is made by imaging the grand slopes of Mt.Yotei or the ground swells standing up when hitting the shore. The work was done by °»KAYA log structures°…, a local carpenter specialized in traditional architecture and log houses. Amazingly, the 32 logs were hand carved giving the best stability and a solid feeling to the structure. According to KAYA, this wooden structure will be standing up even after a giant earthquake that would knock all the other houses in Niseko down.
You can step up the stairs next to the bio-diesel barrel and go through the discreet main entrance. You will then come up to a tribal shield brought from Papua New Guinea back in the 70s. This shield was being used by a local tribe and is now placed here as the gatekeeper of the showroom.
The classic boards lining up on the left of the shield, each holding legendary stories are actually still very actively used today..... yadda yadda yadda.... youll see the line up of the surfboards shaped by Mr. Yoshihiko Kushimoto of °»Ki Surfboards°…; Long board, Rocket Fish, Glass On Shingle Fin, a 9°«6°… for big waves are there to see. Also the Semi-Gun shaped out of the image of the Gentemstick
The rack itself, casually displaying the boards are each different, all carefully hand crafted by Toru Kuwabara. The walls are covered with a white lime plaster made from scallop shells of nearby Uchiura Bay, giving the showroom a clear but sober atmosphere.
Last but not least, SEVs are located at the four corners of the house, water and fuel pipes, as well as both interior and exterior of our car. SEV is a metallic material that has a nature to refine the flow of the magnetic field and purifying the quality of the air of the surrounding environment.
then Mr Cheezle said "I had a dream last night. I dreamt I was a dove flying over the sea. And then I dove into the ocean... And I swam with the dolphins. I was two animals joined as one... ...which meant - good things are coming. Good things."
