Not looking good for on time shipments of some products this year....

 

The shipping crisis is getting worse.

I've been in contact with a good number of people in supply chains and one thing is certain, prices are going higher. Either due to pent up demand, inability to get materials and if they can paying higher prices for them, or... when they cant get materials bringing outsourced production of said materials back in house if they can to keep their operations going. At least this is the case in construction materials and appliances. 

For a multitude of reasons inflation isn't transitory. Especially in appreciating assets.

Yup, inflation is coming, and it's gonna come hard. I only have one more item to grab and I'll be set for the next few seasons.. Gonna make sure I grab it though now, so I'll be set.

was talking to a rep a few weeks back, said they have a container that's been sitting in port on the west coast since January. They still haven't been able to unload that one container as more shipments keep arriving and getting stacked in front of it.

on the bright side, C3 just landed in our warehouse today.

furrrealz.

I know a couple of bike shops that were taking preorders on bikes for this summer, a few had to send out emails that customers would be receiving their 2021 bikes maybe by the end of 2022.

On the real, I'm doing all my christmas shopping now before shit gets dumb.

good luck out there! we've had folks coming in all ripping and roaring to get set up on the newnew, trying to beat the rush, and we're just like, cool. new stuff won't be here for another month.

I just mean toys and shit for kiddos. Knowing how many containers are sitting I'm expecting issues with stores being out of shit, online out of shit, possibly price spikes and shipping delays with online shipping too... especially if Covid spikes. I don't want any part in that panic shit if I can avoid it.

 

Personally, I'm down to the fewest boards I've had in more than a decade. The Optimistic has replaced most of my quiver.

well in addition to the whole first world problems as it relates to snowboarding (excepting, maybe, the people in the industry who make their money this way) most people on this site probably have too much gear and stand to profit from this situation

yeah exactly.  and this too.  we don't need chips but we'll see how frivolous shit (like recreational equipment) factors in anywhere with competition for raw materials.

Debt based economic systems needing to achieve infinite growth on a finite planet. I see no issue.
