I RULE YOU ALL
http://most-expensive.com/top-10-furniture yeah this stuff is expensive but if your a top dog then why not? its called trickle down economics, the ultra wealthy demand and skilled craftsmen work with their clients to supply, its very simple really. I once built mortise and tenon garage doors with my father for a client on Martha's vineyard for a price that would upset you but the client got 100% unique and exotic doors from a wood called zebra wood.
I cant speak for Roy but like any artist and craftsmen there is always room for negotiating with most things, except ones wife of course, mine is priceless!
I know you support Roy and that is fine so I'm not trying to start a war with you, just stating a differing opinion on an artist work. It's very common in all other art forms and that is why we have critics. Why is Roy held to a different standard and untouchable?
Oh and I agree my wife is priceless too but I might trade her for a step up and a trip to CR! Just kidding.

Investment bankers from Long Island should give their money to everyone including charities and especially our woodworking business. Trickle down economics is exactly why the rich shouldn't be in a comparable tax bracket to middle income americans, they create the economy tax them less.I am sure there are plenty of folks who would chastise that home owner for spending money on special garage doors and say they should have given money to a charity
I don't get it, in the boat building industry its ok for Hunter day yahts to sell boats and its also ok for Royal Huismen to sell so thats clearly a very mature market with allot of consumer interests involved, think of a Roy board as the suit of armor to an English mansion but rather the surf quiver the the Royal Huismen Yacht. just trying to make a friendly analogy.how does the surf industry place a stigma on the price of goods when they sell boardshorts for $80! If anything the industry is promoting skyrocketing prices.
Roy will never go the way of billabong because his surf company obviously isn't listed on the nasdaq therefore unless he doesn't level the balance sheet his surf ideology is immortal. A wooden surf shaper can always frame a house or build a boat or do anything else friend.I would guess Roy does sell other items like the alaias and his plans otherwise he would go the way of Billabong.
Correct. He is not untouchable, but only on the basis of surf design, money does not affect ones surfing. Design wise everything is good surely. I can assure you Parallel profile surfboards are good, they take a long time to build and theres a small tolerance for error really.I know you support Roy and that is fine so I'm not trying to start a war with you, just stating a differing opinion on an artist work. It's very common in all other art forms and that is why we have critics. Why is Roy held to a different standard and untouchable?
