    the waves this morning were junky, but my pal just happened to grab his camera and i thought the ride looked decently fun and it displays east coast short period slop and how the olo can move you further when its closing out.

    What time was this? Sun looks like afternoon.

    Yeah, even though I explained to him beforehand that the riding position is more central.

    He also looked like he was starting to get it right in the last couple of rides, as a surfer it happens automatically.

    He says that aloha is his creed and he has the right manner, but it's a facade.

    I bet the nose of that board would be a fun place to ride.

    Yep, there's a proven tactic: if you can't pin your troubles on the Hawaiian Mafia then assassinate the individual's character.

    this fits as when I watched vids of the boards in action under Roy's piloting (license needed?) I see a constipated astronaut trying to maintain speed and stay in the pocket, looks pretty awkward

    NOW PLEASE LET THIS THREAD DIE
    HELL YAH.

    Can I get an 'amen' wayne the insane....?

    I see nothing in this video that a normal LB or even a fat fish could not do just as well. And as Brew said, once again we are blessed with a video of a straight ride with nary a turn in sight.

    Coming from you? lol squared.

    As for 'troubles' are you serious? Without a bit of controversy and skullduggery the olo tour would have lacked spice.

    Don't mistake telling it how it is for complaining... I'm just reporting what happened i.e. events which occurred, and expressing my opinion.

    And what is your point? To this day no one has ever done what numerous members here have asked and posted a video of these craft doing anything but going straight down the line.
