You'd get better results if your attempts to pry for information used straight questions rather than the leading adjective laden phrases which you tend to post. Including 'ridiculously priced' in the question means that both yes and no answers imply agreement with the proposition.
By the way the surfermag 'feature' contained at least one blatant lie and was a classic example of devious shoddy non journalism. Ben Mondy was the culprit, and as usual the group blame each other and run for cover when confronted with their own BS.
I got a full page picture though so don't mind.
Anyway thanks for your opinion.

Randy Rarick's review (performed at the request of the shaper) says it all about these boards.
I have no ax to grind with you, but I too am curious regarding the market for your craft. Could you tell us who (generally or specifically) has purchased one or more of your boards? A testimonial from one of your customers would speak volumes and silence many of the naysayers.
no one has bought any of his boards for 1.47million or any other amount.
Roy says he sells the plans to build the board.
Even roy knows no one would ever pay that kind of money for his boards.
I thought Rarick's review was a good one. I thought he nailed it. But in Roy's defense the board must be surfed by standing in a way that one has never had to stand on every single other board in existence.
I feel bad for Roy.... if he priced his boards at a 15 or 20% markup from the actually cost to build the board I bet he would be selling a lot of them. the board costs a couple grand to make. that's what it should cost a buyer, plus a reasonable markup of course.

I have a new theory on the RS phenomenon. He's setting longterm goals. Its the "they'll love me when I'm gone plan".
It's a pretty good plan. Be an eccentric throughout life. Create some pretty cool stuff. Die. Pretty cool stuff starts selling.
It has happened before.
