Product Review: Ho Stevie! Surf Gear Pack

Even though we love our surf brands, sometimes we love to hate their prices and lack of supply (read: supply v. demand economy) or the nightmarish purchasing experience (dear pop-up banners, No I do not want to sell you my soul for an extra 10% off my purchase!!).
