    You are in some doubt about it?

    To me it is just aimless incoherent flapping, a useless and arbitrary trick which makes me cringe every time I see it.

    I'm thankful that most people are into it though.

    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."

    Exactly. Roy doesn't sound like any longboarder I know. Walking the board, noseriding, and big turns is about all you have with a longboard. It doesn't take any skill to just ride a wave with a LB.

    I think you all have been trolled, if you stop responding to him he'll disappear.

    Can I get a good deal on the Dragon model. I saw it's $1.3M on your site. My wife would freak if I spent more than $975K.

    Thanks

    Here's the Makaha 12-9 being surfed and it shows this very well.

    You'd be feeling sorry for yourself if you had to compete with these boards as they trump the other longboards in every functional respect.

    that board would be turned to splinters at pipe. I think I could easily out surf you... you on that joke and me on my long board... and I will take your legs out!! lol.

    I love his excuses. If I am paying that much for a board, it better be stable and easy to ride.
