    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.

    Spoken like a true self indulgent prick that you are. In my first post I asked you directly had you ever sold one of these boards for $500,000+, you never answered. If Surfer lied why not have them print a retraction or sue them? And what was the lie? Was it that you had not sold one or was it something else in the article? I am going to find it in my stack of past issues of Surfer and scan it in and post it here so all can read it. Please then tell me which part of the article is a lie.

    Randy Rarick's review (performed at the request of the shaper) says it all about these boards.

    Hey Roy,

    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.

    Don't feel bad for him. I seriously doubt he expects to ever sell a board for those prices. I believe his whole business plan is to set the bar so high on the boards he builds so that he can turn around and sell the plans for a reasonable price. This creates a "perceived value" and most people who are truly interested in a wood board will most likely want to try their hand at it themselves for dirt cheap compared to the price of buying "the real deal". Which isn't a bad idea because he can simply make copies of the plans and it cost him little to nothing so it's all profit really. He uses those funds to pay for the supplies on his next build. Then he makes a new set of plans, makes lots of copies, and sells those. Rinse & Repeat. I'm sure he's thinking, "one day some rich fool is going to make me an offer on one of these boards, and that's all i'll need, just ONE, that'll be enough for a lifetime."

    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.
