    Not at all, I've been selling plans and kitsets for these boards since 2004 and have been actively encouraging people to build their own.

    Steve's board is by no means identical to the Earl either, since both the plan shape and rocker differ from the original.



    Im very curious, where does your production add USD $999,3000.00????
    I have no idea where you got that figure from, but the price is determined by factors other than materials plus normal labour costs.

    Like what? what else is there beside labor, material and skill? do you add magic? I guess you have to if you want your board to actually work. lol.

    Roy, you would probably have a very good business if you priced these boards 10 to 20% over what it costs to produce them. I would guess you could sell them a bit higher... maybe $2,000.00 and I bet you would sell 10 to 20 a year. Instead you don't sell any boards and make, probably, peanuts.

    Surfboards are not our only line, we do a good trade in plans, kitsets, blanks, wax, and sunblock.

    I do not wish to make 20 surfboards a year, and if I want your advice you'll be the first to know.

    Cheers.

    Word on the street is that sunblock is bad for you.

    Another hallmark of the classic scammer: he's got it all figured out, 'cause he knows something the rest of the human race isn't privy to. And that makes him special. And that makes his offering special. And goobers fall in line like mesmerized, brainwashed asshats in order to shell out their valuable money for the mysterious special sauce.

    And that's how you get Madoff, and MF Global, and politicians & Roy Stuart.

    Stuart's just another in a long line of scammin' slammers, and there's plenty of 'em from his home isle of NZ.

    I posted an estimated $700 for materials.
    I built the board over a three month period. However I believe I have (roughly) 160 hours in labor.
    So if my labor rate was $25 an hour and I included materials the price tag would be 4,700.

    If my labor rate was $15 dollars an hour and I included materials the price tag would be 3,100.

    Since this board was built by an "average joe" (myself), what would the price be...........?

    I felt this would be a good question to the forum readers.
