    Hey Steve, can you please just come out and tell everybody you pulled a fast one and are actually a mythical internet creature made up by Roy, this would be much more entertaining if you could do that. Clemson has your back, so don't worry, we all know you're "legit", but it sure would make for a better story if you could do this one favor. For the sake of entertainment? Or better yet, can you please PLEASE wear an orange jumpsuit, white space helmet, and a fake gnome beard on your next voyage and have Clemson snap some action photos of you navigating down the line on that bad boy?

    I make boards to be as versatile as possible, so that they do well in a huge range of conditions. I've ridden them in waves up to 4x overhead countless times, and waves of many different shapes including the tubular variety all the way down to 6 second period onshore slop.
    See.... this is where you cause problems for yourself roy. its pretty obvious your board is not made for waves like pipeline or other hollow fast surf.

    If I am wrong, I would like to see the video of the board making a barrel. Otherwise its just as Clemson said... your board is good for that wave/break you surf in nz.

    An illogical deduction.

    I've been riding my designs for 20 years and have tested them in a huge range of conditions. For many years I'd go out on them in almost every surfable day regardless of size, shape or wind direction, sometimes in waves so small that no one else was out, sometimes in waves so big and stormy that no one else was out. ... in fact when conditions are difficult for example windy and ragged a board like the Ghost 12 has its advantage increased. It is truly what I call a 'Universal surfboard'.

    Lately I've been picking photogenic conditions i.e. sunny,with reasonably long period, light winds or offshores, and within a certain size range. You'll notice that picking such conditions means that I'm only getting in the water occasionally rather than nearly every day as I used to. This is partly due to my relocation inland, getting the most attractive conditions for video, and the fact that my surfing days are now family events, I choose days which are safe and fun for small children.

    I didn't know quadruple overhead was a thing...

    ...but I think I know who would know...

    Which board?

    The shapes I use are inherently suited to hollow waves and perform superbly in hollow waves. I've been tubed many times on them in the past, whether you believe this or not is of no consequence, as the fact of the matter can't be changed.

    well, you have been so eager to show us vids of you and the boards you ride... why not show us a video of you making a legit hollow fast barrel.

    you don't have to but I'd like to see proof of what you are force feeding us.

    For the record Steve's board is similar to some of many in many respects but uses considerably more rocker than I ever use. My 10'6" Earl has just over four inches of rocker whereas Steve's has seven inches.

    It should still ride well, but will obviously be less suited to very gently sloping waves than to steeper waves.

    When the sandbanks and swell align suitably hopefully we'll get some tubes.

    will you video it for us?

    Also, I am always curious as to why you keep up with all the opinions people have about your boards. what does it really matter? you've priced yourself out of the market by roughly 1.47 million times the average surfboard cost. no one will buy it.

    from a biz standpoint... your hurting your product. unless you really don't want to sell any.
