Noseriding and point scoring are not functional aspects of longboarding. Noseriding ... has a detrimental affect on surfboard design.
My boards are designed to ride waves efficiently without reference to competition based handicap rules or requirements.
Your post also implies that I'm responding dishonestly, I suggest that you desist from such comments and stick to the design aspect.
Roy... you an I have VERY different ideas about where we want our boards to take us. Just as you have zero interest in "tricks," I have zero interest in your idea of "efficiency." That's a matter of personal preference, and not up for debate. And I'm not implying dishonesty... you made a statement about competition, and I assumed you meant competitive surfing... in which case you'd be wrong. Not necessarily dishonest... just wrong. But I guess we have different meanings for words like "compete," "functional," "detrimental effects on surfboard design." I guess you could say we even have different meanings for the word, "surfboard."
