    Ridiculous comments there MFitz... none of them are correct, and neither are the assumptions underlying them.

    If you apply logic to your post you should be able to figure that out for yourself.

    As for reputation... lol if I were worried about what the herd members think I'd be building the generic stuff that everyone else makes.

    I make what I want to make, stick to the truth, and have a great reputation with some people. I'm not out to please everyone. Now stop giving free advice I don't want it.

    So, the board in Hawaii that RR tested & posted his video review of....the problem was the rider, not the board?

    Also, just curious: wasn't one of your boards surfed in northern California (last year, was it?) but it coudln't hang with head high surf & was demolished by the waves? Just asking, because I vaguely recall reports on this very Forum of the implosion of one of your boards in norcal.
    Any truth to that one and if so whose 'fault' was that....?

    that is true, I did the see the video in question but I don't remember much about it except the guy saying it got aced. I think the roy board would be fun to ride on some nice stomach high peelers.... a slow breaking wave so you could stay with the shoulder....

    They're perfect for multi-mile tidal bores.

    I really am impartial about this whole thing, but wanted to provide the link for historical accuracy.

    If you look at my videos you'll see that the boards turn almost constantly, and they do so in trim without having to pedal back to the tail to do a ponderous pivot/rotation.

    As for planing, that's what surfboards do.... and it is strange how I can go from surfing left to surfing right on the same wave if I can only go up and down.

    Anyway if you want a 'Carolina cutback' which makes you want to hit someone then do it yourself... if you surf... I have my doubts about whether or not some of you do.

    You comment regarding the video showing my sons is ridiculous, clearly they are turning way less than I am during that session. Again, you are blind by choice.

    .
    I don't care about anyone's comments in relation to your boards. Trimming is not really turning, and that's all you have videos of. Stow the aggression. I am attempting, futile as it may be, to have a civilized conversation in regards to the perceived performance and where people seem to question the claims.
    BTW, your comments about whether people actual surf on here are pure ad hominem.
