I just got my 3rd set in the mail this morning.

Aaaaaw. What's the the matter shredder, somebody's not Canadian.


It's no scam, every time I go in there, I give out all the other 20% off coupons to the good ole folks in my community.
That's my team, "The Joes'" That guy standin in line who never gets the deal, he didn't know it yet, but he's 3rd base.
The chick behind him inline, she doesn't know it yet but she's gonna be on my team too. Personal fluffer, whilst I'm hookin' people up, like mutha fuckin Robin Hood..

MWA HA HA!!!!

@ the end of the year they tally up the account & give me a gift certificate worth a whopping 5%.
So, come on team, lets get out there!!!!
Gooooooooooo Teeeeeaaaaammmmmmmm!

Sure, I'll admit it you should have all that stuff & know how to use it.

But did your little $60 kit come with a $6,000-$10,000 base grinder.
If it did I want one too, cause mine didn't come with one.

I've never taken one of my babies in there to have anything done to it.
Not that I wouldn't, I just haven't needed to.
Most of the time I bring in really beat up boards, so they can't really get much worse.

There are tonnes of last years & this years boards out there for cheap.
They might look pretty bad @ first but if all the scratches are shallow, a base grind will make it perfect again.

not to mention base grindin on boards these days will remove the pours designed into the base layer when they are molded to allow your board to hold more wax and run faster on the hills

I don't really see the point in base grinds. Unless you got a scrape going from tip to tail thats not to the core, i mean thats just way to much petex that will never stay in, just in my experience a small scratch from a tree just isnt going to affect your ride that much. a base grind really should just be used to give your board a thorough clean after summer storage so your board will accept the wax easier, and even at that just use a citrus based cleaner and a scotch brite pad your good as new.

Hey Hey team of mine.

I almost missed it but Sportchek is having 50% sales starting 2 days ago.

Oct 24-29. Sportchek has some not bad shit, they have a lot more high end stuff than what they used to have.

Burton hero, Ride Machete,Ride Wild Life,K2 Happy Hour, lots of Rossi + much more, they didn't have this sort of shit last year.

So now is the time to use your 20% off coupon, it's good on everything even if it's already on sale, so don't let them tell you otherwise.

If you haven't got yours yet, you can check [Fitness] SportChek Team Assist program - Many Discounts - RedFlagDeals.com Forums

There is about 50 pages of people on there giving away & trading these things. If you look you will find someone in your area.

If anyone out here near me needs one hit me up.

TT
