I paid full price for this baby, a rare thing for me, but I love the watch. I've had it for 4-5 years now and surfed with it hundreds of times and it still keeps on going. You do need to make sure to rinse it in fresh water after your session and press all the buttons to clear out any salt gunk, otherwise the buttons can get stuck. The tide info is so great to have, set to my local break which is the namesake of the watch, Rincon. The button assignment is a bit odd, and the settings aren't intuitive so I always have to read the manual when DST ends, but otherwise love this watch. A good hefty feel but still small enough to fit under my wetsuit.
