7/8 buying gear afraid to get scammed

Post by fatdrunk »

Hello guys

Sorry for posting in this section but i wanted to get a bigger response. I'm getting ready to buy some new gear. I found a website 25surf.com that has really really cheap gear. But it's based out of indonesia and i'm afraid to get scammed....has anyone bought stuff from there and what was your experience.
I would appreaciate your feed back. thanks

Your best option is to buy gear off this forum, a lot of guys are selling excellent equipment in excellent condition. It sounds like your relatively new to the sport, so just make some inquiries on some used gear; unless you have to have new.

Check out, www.ikitesurf.com. I'd like to buy year old gear more locally, but seems to be pretty limited.
