Buying Remote wakeskate from aacadia.com
 
So aacadia.com had remote wakeskates for sale. I have been really wanting to get a remote. But is this site a good site? I dont want to get ripped off or just something stupid happen. Any advice or experience would be great help.
Also, do remote boards have any warranties?

I dont believe Remote has a warranty policy. Most small wakeskate companies dont. For wood decks they are the strongest out there though.

Aacadia is run by mike ennen and silas thurman i believe, and Silas is the owner of Remote. They are legit. I don't know if any site has them right now. My shop has had a 39.5" Yan Lecomte on order since september and still hasnt received it. They have been slow. The other boards came in and were great, but were already pre sold.

If aacadia is out of stock now, you should go to your local shop and ask them to order a remote for you. It will take the same time and cost the same. Plus you might get your local shop to start carrying them so other skaters can buy them.

aacadia has them for sale right now. But if it takes like 6 months to finally get it, its pointless because I am in Minnesota and summer would pretty much be over. And I will try talkin to guys at my local shop and see what they can do.

Only two of each size...but more on order....these are the first one's we've seen from 2011 and since the new direction of Remote.

What new direction? Is Pastura leaving Remote?

i heard pastura is doing his own thing...

perfski 02-25-2011 9:03 PM

Pastura is gone....Hooker is in.....his boards are selling well with the "hooter"esque style graphic.
