    Incredibly Expensive Wood Surfboards?

    I was just checking out longboards today, and was reading about wooden boards. A quick search brough me to "Roy Stuart" surfboards. They looked nice until I saw the price. Here is an example for 1.3 million! http://www.roystuart.biz/p/dragon.html
    Is that the actual price of the board or am I misreading. Has anyone used these boards? I've never heard of them and never heard of a professional using them. Do they actually sell these boards for so much? Are wooden boards always a lot more expensive?

    See other wonderful thread. He is serious, the only positive reviews come from people you have never heard of, and the only videos of the thing show Roy in a goofy suit and helmet ski-surfing on some beautiful waves, very slowly.

    I actually saw that thread right after I posted this up, saw the videos too. It has to be a joke

    Well it's kinda both. He IS serious... but he IS also a JOKE... perhaps that's what you meant?

    Worth every penny! Best boards in the WORLD! All others pale in comparison. You're a kook if you don't get one.

    you know, i have a lot of respect for roy as a craftsman & for sticking w/ what he believes is best, even in the face of all the criticism & mockery he faces. i don't agree w/ his design theories, but that's another story.
