the point was reminiscent of the first few posts that are this thread
As for 'troubles' are you serious? Without a bit of controversy and skullduggery the olo tour would have lacked spice.
Don't mistake telling it how it is for complaining... I'm just reporting what happened i.e. events which occurred, and expressing my opinion.
Carter is an idiot, he isn't talking about turning he's referring to a particular style of turning but doesn't get the difference.
If you look at my videos you'll see that the boards turn almost constantly, and they do so in trim without having to pedal back to the tail to do a ponderous pivot/rotation.
As for planing, that's what surfboards do.... and it is strange how I can go from surfing left to surfing right on the same wave if I can only go up and down.
Anyway if you want a 'Carolina cutback' which makes you want to hit someone then do it yourself... if you surf... I have my doubts about whether or not some of you do.
You comment regarding the video showing my sons is ridiculous, clearly they are turning way less than I am during that session. Again, you are blind by choice.
I have to say that I am impressed with the lengths to which Roy is going to basically tell everyone they are wrong and the manner in which he does this is really incredible. Good job Roy. But lets face it, you have one shot to make a good impression and your board and design had that shot. I think its kinda cool.. but its not the best board and certainly it does not appear to be the best performing board or we would see someone surfing pipe with it. I think you could do a lot for your reputation(I only say this because you are obviously concerned about that) if you just let the crits go and work on the foam boards you posted. I'd be more interested in seeing that.
