Roy in an effort to not waste space I will not quote your long post from above but suffice to say you are sliding into the anger posts that has seen you banned from other sites. You seem to do this once posters start using real arguments against you instead of just bashing you as you do not have any way to refute an opinion since it is as stated an opinion and not a fact. Why can you not understand that you have your opinion and we have ours and the proof shows it's you and a small few against the rest of the surf world.
You mocking my comment of valid criticism shows that you feel no criticism of your work is valid.
You call me and others communist when I have stated YOU CAN CAHRGE WHAT EVER THE HELL YOU WANT EVEN IF WE DISAGREE WITH YOU how is that communist and not capatilist? I never said wealth was bad and have said over and over and over again that you are free to charge what you want. I also said you look like a hippy not that you are one as evidenced by your greed.
You say you do not act like the surf world is against you but then say everyone is lying about you and your boards, how do you reconclie that statement?
As for the articles neagtivley depicting your boards, all I have ever read is them putting down your prices not construction. If you really want to prove your point then as I have said you or Charles please tell us the real costs of materials only used in this board then we can extrapalate the the difference and we will see what price you feel your work is worth. Again just to be 100% CRYSTAL CLEAR YOU CAN CHARGE WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT FOR YOUR TIME, but it seems that your hourly rate is higher than a surgeon who saves lives. Do you really feel you are worth that much? If so great but I myself and others here do not and that is our point.
And finally to this comment:
Regarding surf mags, you can't be serious... it's hardly news to Charles or myself that surf mags and many surfers find the prices to be 'outrageous'.
If that was the case then why are you so shocked SI, Swaylocks and many other forums disagree with you?
