    Fake Roy... I think you are hurting the image of the real Roy. I still can't imagine that you are real. so post that picture in the pose I request, please. Otherwise I can't really think about giving an honest response to your posts...
    the only thing I can say for sure is that your boards look like they would be better as kids snow sleds... and would probably perform better as such.

    Schweeeeet! Tell you what, I'll go $800k for both and throw in the shipping but before we close the deal let me see what Roy has to say!

    HAHA. Unless this guy is going around on various forums for the past 5 years posing as Roy this is definitely the real Roy. Go to http://www.grainsurf.com/forum/ and check out the history of is posts.

    for half a million dollars I could buy myself a refurbished original woody, a quiver of surfboards, and modest beach house near the coast in Rhode Island with some beer money left over for a housewarming party. I did navigate to Roys website (kind of got a kick out of the fact that its a .biz site...) and I have but one question for the man himself - Roy, when you parted the Red Sea, were you able to surf the top-to-bottom wall you created through the divine intervention of the Lord Almighty on your $550,000 single fin, or did you feel like you needed a quad set up with a little more rail?

Roy has had some massive arguments on their. And the argument is nearly identical in every situation.

    That being said wood boards are a ton of fun to build and ride very well. I have never ridden a shortboard so maybe they are not the best for that style of surfing but if you enjoy cruising and making smooth turns on a wave you will love a wood board.
    Hey RID I've spent some time on the grain forum too! Have you built your own hollow wooden surfboard? I bought some paulownia wood this fall and plans for the shingle fin from Rick, but i haven't mustered up the motivation to get started yet...

    actually if the board was the other way around it would probably work much better.... as it is, I don't see it working at all...

    Roy - I'm really curious what's the most expensive board you've actually sold to date? Like most, I personally don't "get it", but find it interesting.

    Lighten up, Francis.

    come on folks, yankee is Roy Stuart. He is also the Nicaraguan bandito(s), I mean, how convenient, he owns land there, probably from the proceeds of the 1 or 2 boards he has sold. He is also SouthjettyBill, nyshredmachine, and the double D girl, and... leethestud, I just don't realize it yet.

    PinkStink I have built quite a few boards. There is not a good local supplier of Paulownia near me but I found a great place in NH that sells cedar decking for real cheap. It has some knots but that just adds to the look of the boards. Below is a photo of the last board I made. Its a real fun project and even better when you get to ride weeks of hard work. I will tell you though your first board will not be that great. It takes a couple to get the techniques down. If you have a background in woodworking it will come to you much quicker. Also I now you bought plans but download AKU shaper. Its a fantastic board design program that will actually create template for hollow wooden boards that you can print out at Staples for a couple bucks. Have fun on your build and stay on tree to sea it is a wealth of information and extremely useful when building.
