    For that price you should be able to hyperdimensionally travel.

    $528000.00 each? I saw on TV that 50% of the tower surf company sold for $150,000 + royalties on every dollar made by the other half.

    For $528000.oo I would expect your entire business, all of it's assets and patents, all of your personal assets, and your slavery for the next 30 years. Heck, even then I'd just opt for early retirement and spend my days riding sub $1000 boards that I can actually turn on. That guy in the video looks like a normal 1st street kook, I'd value the board just like any custom made log; between $600 and $1200. Back to the drawing board, broski...

    Roy,

    Don't feel ganged up on here, even though I think you may like it a bit. Your claims aren't backed up by the footage you've provided and are very opinion based. Your board's very dynamic design has a very static range. So there's one of two things happening here... Your boards are very well suited to get into the pocket or the steep section of the wave and stay there or your skills are limiting the board's potential.

    Do you have any footage of anyone else surfing your boards to compare different styles? When I watched your videos there is a whole lot of unused real estate on the waves with no attempts to hit the lip or put a good bottom turn in there. Is this limitation due to your abilities or is the board unable to perfom like this? A more talented surfer may be able to push the board harder.

    Basically, from what I've seen you have a quiver of very expensive and unique "go-fast boards." Which is great if that is what you're looking for and obviously it is from your comments lately. Unfortunately, the majority of the surfing community is looking for more than a sled. Personally, I like a "go-fast board" too but I want to be able to trim and carve and use the whole wave.... I'm talking rollercoaster over monorail.

    Found this posted on an esoteric website:

    "....his boards have been universally disregarded by anyone who actually surfs as useless and dangerous pieces of rubbish. Stradavarius’ violins have been played by the greatest virtuosos over the years, whereas Roys boards have only ever been ridden by one or two pros, with almost universal criticism. Unfortunately, I assume this is just another part of his google spamming campaign in a sad and pathetic attempt to sell boards for half a million dollars to people who are incapable of suring them, thereby endangering themselves and others who have to share a break with someone woefully unable to control Roy’s ridiculous wooden juganauts. I’d seriously recommend that anyone who genuinely thinks about purchasing any of his products to thoroughly research every aspect of his designs and read a number of his own posts that show his inability to respond to criticisms that have been made – these are nothing more than an attempt to sell incredibly overpriced boards to the “ultra rich” (to quote Roy himself) as status items or pieces of art rather than functioning surfcraft, and when we really get down to it, there’s nothing here any cabinet maker couldn’t do."

    Have to say that Liam is making sense to this po' boy who can't afford 528k for a friggin longboard, now or ever.

    BTW, I dug a bit on the 'Net & most of the 'reviews' are just land-locked ravings of the rich & goofy on websites like hauteliving.com (the name alone...).

    Has no one picked up on my post this is not Roy Stuart but a troll who signed up as Roy Stuart to have some fun, lol. If it is Roy Stuart is there a volume discount? If I buy 3 do I get the 4th at half price?

    I don't know how you came to that conclusion since I have expressed no opinion on that subject.

    Your reading comprehension skills need improvement.

    Ohhh.That's funny... Good job Fay Roy Stuart.

    But seriously. Has he ever sold a board? I can't imagine one person has ever paid $1.3M for a board. I don't care how lame they are and how awesome they think the board is...

    Please be specific

    Please explain what you mean by this.

    Your comment is based on inefficient and outdated competition based criteria, the boards do everything required for wave riding without reference to such frippery.

    It's a postmodern paradigm shift.



    Basically, from what I've seen you have a quiver of very expensive and unique "go-fast boards." Which is great if that is what you're looking for and obviously it is from your comments lately.

    ... yet trim and carve is exactly what they do very well.

    Most longboards are woefully deficient in that regard....and what the majority of the surfing consumers ( call it a community if you wish lol ) want is irrelevant. Your comment assumes that I want to appeal to the majority., an aim which I have no interest in.

    I make boards the way I do because they work better... the rules and traditions used for mainstream longboard design severely handicap those boars to the point where they cannot compete in the real world... they can only do so in the quarantined and carefully sanitised world of competition based illusion.

    Zippy, I think it's pretty obvious that this is a posting troll... but even so, the responses should hopefully make their way back to the real roy as the idea of the board being that expensive derves the originator to hear it.

    Hey Roy, why don't you prove you are the real deal... post a picture of yourself sanding on your left leg, right foot off the ground while holding a cup upside down in your right hand.... until then you're a posting troll...
