    Well Roy we both agree that your boards are certainly not the best in the world then...

There’s as much beauty and grace and “pure surfing” in punting a big air and camping on the nose as there is standing in the middle of the board. Some would argue more. It requires an incredible mastery of your board, the wave and your body to do what you don’t consider “pure surfing”.

    I’ve seen part your quiver and I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that you’ve been surfing far less time than you’ve been word working and that you are in many ways a very novice surfer. That’s not meant to be offensive, but purely an observation. Have you ever ridden a potato chip at Trestles? A pig at Malibu? A gun at Sunset? A step-up at Pipeline? To say that Roy’s boards are more suited to pure surfing than any of those designs seems more like a wood worker’s opinion than a surfer’s. In my opinion, that’s pretty myopic. Surfing is both a very big world and a very small one. You’d be amazed at how small the circles run in the surfing hotspots. Everybody knows somebody and somebody knows everyone. What your riding matters a lot less than how you ride it.

    Maybe you should keep a more open mind Chuck?

    Actually za gaffer I like what you have said to me. I curently am a sufer of Malbu shapes and I also have some mini long boardes and and a few woodies I have experimented with. I have been surfing since I was 13, I am 24 now. I am certainly not from the worlds hot spot of surfing either, I would probably get crushed in whatever triple over head mavericks stuff you probably charge on short boards. But any how my statement regarding pure surfing is to my understanding a style of surfing which doesn't require board walking nor do any of the menuvers compliment high scores in a compition. I have always liked to surf fast and well controlled, I deal with allot of close out conditions from time to time where I'm from given the spot and the day ofcource so making it before the close out is always nice. I find that Roy's boards are very unique and beautiful and good for speed.

    I'm a better surfer than a surfboard shaper to be perfectly clear. I've taken interest in Building Roy's boards recently, prior to me knowing about Roy I was using other wooden boards built by local shapers in my area and have always loved the carpenters surfing experience. A carpenter has the ability to make a cool surfboard from wood which is unique and special. As for pure surfing I guess any style which makes you grin like a fool and feel incredibly stoked is pure enough for me.

    ZA Gaffer: Thanks for occasionally interjecting something worth reading and thinking about in the middle of this horrid thread. "pure"...really?

    I'm always surprised how often the term "soul" is connected with certain types of surfing, as though other kinds of surfing objectively lack soul.

    Still hanging on the edge of my chair to find out the resolution to whether Randy Rarick did, or did not, have advance permission to test Roy's board with Roy's awareness. I've been wondering about that for years.

    ^+1. Definitely a very good thought.

    In the guild of beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, which is in harmony with zaGaffer's post.

    When I used the term pure surfing in regard to Roy's designs I am using it to simply imply that the olo style long board which it is doesn't do anything fancy other than surf efficiently from a sweet spot riding position. It's only designed to surf, not nose walk, smack lips, launch airs, or make excessive spray wih hard turning menuvers. So it's not to belittle anyone's feelings towards what's pure for them it's just a simplified style is all.

    wouldn't it be a lot smarter for you to market these for a modest $25000-$35000 compared to the incomprehensible 1.4 million? Youre profit margins would still be huge and you could channel far more sales I would say, no?
