Extrapolating this into a wider statement which I did not make is a well known logical error in argument known as the 'straw man' tactic.
Also, I won the existence as bubonicphoniks award of the millennium, care to congratulate me?
You are confusing factual matters with emotional matters.
This is supposed to be a design conversation, and I find that it is better to do design work unemotionally.
In other words stick to the topic, if you please.
Roy talking about something other than the subject, your irresponsible critique of a FAR superior surfers skill and technique is what then? You are criticizing what I said on the basis that you think you understand what I was saying because it fits the qualities of an argument tactic you believe to be familiar with, yet by bringing that up you are talking about irrelevant information and changing the subject, so do try to stay on subject please?
You will find that if you foil the stick correctly and your fin trailing edge correctly both will cease to make the noise which you have been referring to.
Although you are once again off topic I must inform you that you are incorrect regarding my surfboard sales,and apparently have forgotten that I sell other products also i.e.plans, kits, blanks,fins, wax, sunblock and paulownia wood.
But being you've sold no boards, is it really a business?
Roy the truth is Garrett McNamara's achievements in surfing are abundant, including many major achievements. I do not think you have any achievements in surfing that can rival even some of his smallest accredited achievements. McNamara's achievements are far superior to yours and therefore your critique holds very little legitimacy. He is a superior surfer, the world record holder for the largest wave ever ridden. The fact that he was unable to get a good ride on your board on that wave I have to believe is the fault of the unorthodox equipment, not the (accomplished) rider.
