You claim to be a man of science and constantly wave your claimed qualification around, and yet you make false and illogical claims frequently. A case in point is your statement above that I argue with 'everyone and anyone' clearly that is not the case and in my experience these arguments are usually conducted by a small rabid minority of people like yourself.
Wrong, he didn't ride the board correctly, he was told that it shouldn't be ridden from way back on the tail but deliberately ignored this advice, consequently he fell off most of the few waves he rode and is thus unqualified to judge.
what you got was pragmatic reality from RR, aka, the board isn't very good.
I know how well that design works and so do many others who have ridden it.
As I said he isn't qualified.
When the rave review wasn't forthcoming you elected to (metaphorically) to shoot the messenger. And then claim he isn't qualified. Huh...?
The reality is that you are ignoring all the great ride reports which others have provided, and choosing only one, to suit your agenda.
Secondly, the only "common denominator" is one that you create from your own fictional world.
I.e., in the real world there is no "common denominator," only lousy test scores for your product.
Incorrect, my products are in demand.
Lastly, not only do you rip RR for being a "kook" you now go on to assassinate his character through third-party assertions & smears & conspiracy theories.
If your product was all that, it would be in demand. Fact is, it's not in demand.
It was one lousy review with many positive ones, you try to spin this as many i.e. lousy reviews from qualified people, while ignoring themany positive reviews as if they don't exist. That is dishonest and illogical.
It gets lousy reviews from highly qualified/experienced people (at your request!)
Furthermore I did not request that Randy rode the board. The board had been ridden by others in Hawaii for a few weeks and according to North Shore surf photographer Scott Hartvigsen the locals were lining up to ride it, Scott said that the word was going through the 'coconut vine' that the board is a hot item, that it rides really well.
That's when Randy stepped in and put a stop to it. After randy rode it it went to a magazine guy who kept it under lock and key for an entire season, he wouldn't let anyone ride it and eventually told a trustworthy friend of ours in Honolulu that he had kept it locked up as he had received death threats... i.e. he was not to let the board out or he would be killed. That explained his bizarre behaviour. It was extremely difficult and took years to get the board back from Rarick's little gang.
A ridiculous statement. Of course he does.
who have no vested interest in whether the product sells or not.
The lack of demand for your product has nothing to do with the exorbitant price tag you put on it & everything to do with its inherent lameness
By the way, I make accurate claims and almost always post links. You, however, never seem to back up your side of any argument. Case and point, reread your BS in the bee thread. If you are going to accuse a person of doing something, it is best to be sure that you aren't also guilty.
