We all know their are some people out there with some deep pockets, but will they be so kind to buy a $10,000 Rob Machado surfboard or a day at a supercross race where you get to "meet n greet" Eli Tomac and "you’ll have time for a photo opp before watching the race" for $5,000.00. You would think for $5,000 one would be allowed to hang with Eli for the entire day. So lets break it down for you here.  

Rob Machado Custom Firewire Surfboard and Surf Session

For $10,000 (current bid is at $1,200) you can get a custom built board by the man himself then will meet you at one of his local breaks (Seaside Reef or Cardiff) where he'll go surfing with you and bring along one of his many photogs he has here in San Diego to get it all documented. Note: If you live out of the area or state Firewire will ship you the board at no cost to you. Buy now $10,000.

Dan Mann Custom Surfboard and Surf Session

Never heard of shaper Dan Mann, but maybe you have. For $10,000 you don't get a Kelly Slater surfboard nor meet the 11-time Surfing World Champion, but you do get a custom board from one of Kelly's many surfboard shapers and for the icing on the cake you get to surf with Dan the Man himself at his "secret spot" in Coronado. If you don't live in San Diego Firewire will ship this board to you at no charge. Buy now $10,000.

Chris Shiflett Signed Signature Fender Guitar

Clueless on how much guitars go for, but I am thinking this will be going for a lot. Strangely this is the only one in the auction that their is not a "buy now" price. Description of this is as follows: Chris Shiflett signature Telecaster guitar from Fender with a one-piece C-profile maple neck and a 21 medium jumbo frets along with a rosewood fingerboard which has a 12-inch radius. Designed from the hybrid hard rock and country of the Foo Fighters & the Dead Peasants. This bullet truss rod and large Stratocaster-style headstock and vintage style hard-tail bridge is a great Telecaster no matter what type of music you play and to top it off it is signed by Chris himself. No buy now offer...?
