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.

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.

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?
