    You did Bro and a damn nice one too but would you really sell one to somebody for a mil and feel good about yourself knowing the true cost associated with it?

    However as I said the boards are very cool and look amazing. I hate people who trash a type of board design since it's not "new" or "in", I say ride it all.

    Gets lonely out in the woods, sometimes. A man can start to lose his, um, perspective.

    Having given voice to that concern, I agree with others: that thar's a purty chunk of board. You do know, yes?, that Roy is working on his patent infringement lawsuit for you even as you read this.

    We're all waiting, and keen, to see how she rolls. Seriously.

    Curiosity: did you pay Roy $100k for the plans or did you guesstimate your design based on Roy's inundation of the Internet with his 'data,' such as it is?

    btw... when you take this out for a surf are you going to wear an orange jump suit and white space helmet?

    Nice work Steve. Really cool. Is that the same design as the Future Primitive a.k.a. the Infamous Pipeline Challenge board? Also, what kind of wood did you use, paulownia? What are the dims? And, are you gonna let everybody ride it like Roy did?

    It always inspiring to see someone bring something like this together.

    Let me know when you take it out, I live on James island. I'll take my HWS out too. Finally getting the hang of it.

    Hi Steve,

    Congratulations on a very tidy job and a great looking board.

    Acording to the dimensions which you posted she's similar to the 'Earl' 10-6 with one or two differences e.g a narrower nose and a bit more rocker.

    I bet that she'll handle nicely and like the pocket.

    Thanks for choosing the parallel profile method too.
