    Is it on markdown from $500k after the recent product implosion? Or is this just more tool marketing on your part?

    Are Porsche prices marked down if someone drives one into a wall?

    Enjoy the video if you can.

    It is irritating that you keep comparing your board to a Porsche. Porsche is a company built on a long history of performance and quality, along with proven racing heritage. Roy Stuart Surfboards is a company built by one guy who trolls the net talking himself up and builds the slowest turning surfboards ever made.

    By the way, if a Porsche model has a serious design flaw, they generally do something called a fire sale, where they severely reduce the price in order to move the model off the lot.

    There is no design flaw.

    If a Porsche runs into a wall and is written off then it does not constitute a design flaw... and building them to survive every eventuality would severely compromise performance.

    These boards are design to perform and although strongly built we do not sacrifice performance for indestructibility.

    Over the past 20 years I have broken only two of these boards.

    Uh, well, your buoy Ian turned 4 of your masterpieces into kindling in the very recent past (according to your own musings).

    So. Either the travelocity gnomes that you've spawned & subsequently forced into minimum wage slave labor conditions on your production line are ticked off over a lack of money and/or sheep (and are thus sabotaging your balsa bambino boards) OR the design is inherently flawed.

    Y'know, I'm just sayin', the $500k board durability is certainly not getting any better, according to your own admission.

    Ferdi Porsche would be rolling in his grave at 12,000 rpm's over breakage like this if it was his cars.

    That isn't the case, where did you get that idea from?

    Please read, and think, more carefully in future.

    I think that comparing one's pile of balsa chips to a high-quality, German made, race-bred performance automobile is fatuous & just a bit south of loony toons.

    "Ian, who was the rider, has already broken four boards so far this season, all of which were specifically designed for big waves. "

    This is why I asked about the markdown....you apparently just lost $ 2 MLN in revenue on those 4 splinter-tops, so I figured, y'know, maybe a sale, say $300k apiece, to generate revenue so you can continue to produce products from your gnome-inhabited fantasy island.

    But, looks like I'm wrong again ...sigh.
