    I asked him to stand on one leg(left) with right foot off ground, holding cup upside down in right hand... if he could find a picture on the net doing that then I'd be shocked. it would most certainly be an original and enough for me to ease off on calling him full of sh%t

    but the real roy is full of it anyway... who in their right mind would think any kind of surfboard would sell of half a million dollars. lol. especially one that is no where near as good as even china popouts..

    I have a friend in Galveston who is an artist who has built five wooden boards now. The first one was with his teenage son for a school project and it was soooo awesome he built 4 more different size and shape boards. They are completely functional, inside is hollow airplane wing type support. He added a removable thumb screw on the back of the deck to relieve the pressure so if it is out in the sun so they will not split but put the screw back in so it is water tight when used.

    I bought two of them from him over the past year and placed in my house as works of art. They are beautiful and everyone is amazed at these when they see them. He spent hundreds of hours on these things and I paid him $1000 for one and $800 for the other.

    He got the plans from some builder in Cali, paid for the stuff, talked to him over the phone several times and off he went. We surfed the first board he made just to make sure it actually worked. Well, it works, kinda.....by some way different standard. Things are made as light as possible and they are still tanks that will take your head off. Once up they hold a wave much differently than anything else you've every surfed but it wasn't fun AT ALL!

    Point is if you want art, pay for art. If you want to surf pay for the latest and greatest proven technology like any other sport. You don't see football players wearing leather helmets any more...do you.

    More than happy with my 2 wall hangers and they even mean more to me since they were built (not shaped) by a friend. $1800 well spent in my opinion but that's where it stops.

    I'll snap a couple pics of the tonight and post so we can see what ole Roy thinks about them!

    HAHAHA, Yeah you're right, if he could get a picture of that i'd say it's 100% original, as for him being full of sh*t, i'd say he is either way. Love the helmet, must be something he's been wearing since childhood.

    Check out Wefi surfboards. A guy in vancouver is making some high performance boards out there with modern designs.

    Not at all, I don't agree with the 'ripping off' accusation.



    Yes, they may be stupid and wealthy, but you are a douche for taking advantage of that. Your ego seems to obscuring reality here.
    Why do you assume that wealthy people are stupid?

    ... but I don't care if you call me full of sh*t, so don't bother 'easing up' on my behalf.

    .unfortunately they seem to surf like turd...no way around that.

    You are mistaken on that score, they outperform most other boards over a wide range of conditions.

    Those like yourself who have been indoctrinated into the industry dogma don't see what is really going on because they interpret surfing via codes and signs, a sort of label consciousness gone mad.
