    I'm just messing with you man, don't be so sensitive. I realize that you spent a lot of time building that and have a lot of personal investment in it, but I remain skeptical and only barely believe that you are NOT Roy Stewart Stuart, and the thing that rubs me the wrong way is your increased self-promotion.

    It's been over a week, I've surfed I think 3 times on my 7' fish since then, you can surely get waves at low tide on your 25-foot catamaran thingy

    I'm starting to think ride report threads that precede actual rides are kind of a tease.

    So we all now now about the "harmonics" of the board....like violins (not bridges that fell into the river).
    We know about the stance on which the board will be ridden...like Tom Blake, or Roy Stuart

    Whats missing in this ride report thread...hmm...

    We've seen endless videos of Roy riding it, if your wearing a bright colored jumpsuit and a helmet, I'm callin' you out....and then we will all know that you are one of Roy Stuart's 12.

    I've seen this tactic before and i know why it is done... I'll refrain from saying why but assure you that Steve and I are not the same person... if you want evidence he posted a picture of himself holding the board on Tree to sea and possibly here too.

    As for self promotion... why do you love corporations so much? Self promotion is what individuals do, sit back and enjoy it is my advice.

    Agreed Scotty, this ride report is missing a ride report. I could have ran out there as soon as the epoxy cured but I was really hoping to post a report on something butter than 2 foot mush with swell periods that are shorter that the actual surfboard.
    Three months to build the board because I needed to save for tools, wood, epoxy. Three months because I bolt a rocker table just for this board and because I was in no rush.
    I do like to show off my new board. It's my favorite and people are free to post or not.

    Why is everyone giving steve such a hard time. Roy is ridiculous because of his prices and outlandish philosophies. This chap built one in his garage for (if I recall from the previous thread) around 700 bucks. At this point it's just a sweet longboard. Good on ya man, I won't lie, I want to build one too.

    Steve, the waves were beautiful at iop on Thursday, right after the storms had passed. Waist to stomach with a period around 9 seconds, if you were patient.
    Btw, how long have you been surfing?

    I am not giving him a hard time. I am just confused at how a local surfer in our fairly small community can build multiple wood boards, along with this beast, yet no one knows him. He also has come out of nowhere and posted on multiple forums. Maybe just an odd coincidence.

    From the getgo of Steve's threads on his Roy inspired board, I have had a recurring thought that this "could" be Roy just trying to stay in the conversation here by using a fake screen name. But at the moment, if I had to guess I think Steve is legit and I am waiting to hear about his surf experience with it.
