    I have one video of the only few waves which I have ridden on the 13 foot Ghost, it shows the correct riding position, on waves which the malibus and shortboards can't make it through on. One major advantage i have over you in this debate is that unlike you I have not only ridden both longboard types but I surf with malibu riders all the time, so I know the difference whereas you are just assuming. In the majority of sessions the malibus simply can't make the waves which I'm making successfully. This causes the other riders a lot of frustration. It's easy to look at a video and go 'Oh yeah I'd be making that AND doing lots of turns as well' but experience shows otherwise.

    You're so full of it Roy. But keep charging a mil for your unrefined, Fisher Price My First Joinery.


    As far as the tunnel, look at the pic you posted of it. I also scoped out your website. Let me guess, you did it because the fin is actually designed for a left point break and is not for the failed corporatized construct known as the right point break....

    The tunnels are symmetrical I assure you, and yes they go left AND right.

    The 4 inch tunnel on the Makaha improves speed greatly, we've had 37mph out of a 10-9 Makaha in head high short period beach break waves... they fly...

    Is this the picture you are referring to?

    None of those goons know the first thing about flex, they just use it as a marketing buzzword. There's a lot more to it than their clay footed designers realise.

    Glass isn't ideal as it is compresses and stretches less than the wood... if the board is flexible it will eventually delaminate, we don't use it we simply resin coat as the resin moves with the wood.

    We realised this and id it decades before firewire did, and a long time before Mr Burger... firewire are full of sh*t pretending that they thought of it. They haven't understood that functional flex is the province of longboards either... it won't work with mainstream 'Malibu' derived longboard shapes though.

    Here's some flex on a Redwood and Monterey Pine 13-9 Dragon... the board is only 1.75 inches thick. In the water flex is a lot less, due to the pressure and load distribution... the land test is merely an indicator.

    The parallel profile was designed for flex in 1994. Tapered profile boards are not ideal for it.

    What was your argument for ignoring videos of me riding my boards while concentrating on video of those who have not reached a competent level?




    The video does not show that the board is slow, and re turning the riders are beginners, they are trying to turn from too far back.... a typical error which newbies make.





    An impressive comeback, compelling and well supported.



    Why do you look the same as these beginners in your own videos?

    I compare to an Allison, as he is my favorite LB shaper. Will's performance longboard cruises, turns, and rides perfectly.

    I don't.

    Fortunately for you you haven't encountered the Dragon, Ghost or Makaha with myself on board or your bubble of delusion would be burst.

    I'm probably related to Will by the way.

    It's symmetrical though, but keep trolling by all means.
