    Sam here. I am surprised by how many people are upset by the fact I put my personal Born to Hula for sale on my site. I thought I would get the opposite reaction. As Rus said, I purchased this board for full retail plus shipping, and am now selling it for a discount of the retail price. IE, I wasn't out to make a buck on this one. I was out to make an amazing board. I think many of you are upset because of the high price tag, but I didn't need to build it with $220 trucks, or $50 bearings. $220+$50+$133 for the Hula is $403 before wheels, riptides, gator grip, free shipping. I think you get my point.

    I'm skating tonight, and I have been conflicted on this one anyway, so I may grab the Hula. It is getting hard for me to resist. This one may wind up on my site in a year as a used board.

    Soda Factory is one of the main board companies that got me back into longboarding, so I have a great respect for Rus and his shapes. So in the foreseeable future, I hope to continue to spread the stoke as much as possible. Lambchop has been my goto board now for a year! Keep up the good work.

    I am posting this solely so no one gets the wrong idea here. This was a prototype board and Rus has taken care of me and then some on working with me to replace this board and understand what went wrong. I have learned a ton about what it takes to get a board from the idea stage to actually becoming reality and I must say I am blown away how much goes into it. A huge thanks to Rus for being so understanding and helpful about this whole thing. I just thought that saving one of my favorites from the scrap heap was worth experimenting. It is like across between a phoenix and frankenstein. It rose from the ashes with some funny looking parts that were not original to it. The FrankenPhoenix!!!!!!

As Rus said, many have been sold (for a profit) on the classifieds. What I was trying to say was that A) for some reason which I don't understand, seeing it for sale on a commercial site like that seemed wrong to me and that B) this is America and there is nothing wrong with selling your gear, preferably for a profit. To clarify, I am in no way chastising.

I sanded it down to wood, and did a lighter coat of primer, sprayed it gray, and am recreating the blacksheep graphic for the bottom. I might have to put the "Dude in the cart" graphic on top under clear grip... I know there's an official name for that graphic but it escapes me. I'll post pics when it's finished, pretty stoked.

    Just from standing on it I know it will be great, I love dancing, but haven't found a good board for it. I used to have an LBL OSD but it was atleast 12 plies of baltic birch, way too long, and didn't have a whole lot of functionality to it. I could barely take it more than a mile before becoming winded (I can skate 30+ on a nice day on the trails) Just from standing on it I know that only Rus could think up this board, with the perfect kicks, size, and ply count for weight control. Too stoked to get it back to good condition, then thrash it to death.
