I think everyone's problem with Roy is his constant shameless self promotion. It is one thing if third parties are posting the information/videos. Its another thing if you are posting BS about yourself.
I hate to say it but its not just Roy. A lot of people here, youtube, ect.. post pics/videos of themselves looking for some sort of validation from the internet. What makes it worse is when that person is over 18 years old because they should know better.
Just surf and have fun. Stop with the look at me, look at me mommy no hands, and do what your doing and don't worry what everyone else thinks.
Back to more shameless self promotions
You are mistaken with your premise that 'everyone' has a problem with Roy, in reality it is a tiny percentage of people, who are clearly just expressing their own internal issues via a convenient target.
In any case, shameless self promotion is a wonderful thing, without it we'd be back to the carefully sanitised scientifically marketed directives of the cartel media... ok for inmates of the Kool Aid prison but not for free men.
They cost quite a bit. Then again, it's a free market and free country and anyone can buy or sell any item for any damn price they choose. Why does everyone bash on Roy so much? The same reason anyone bashes anyone or anything on this forum. Ask the bashers. But they wouldn't be able to tell you because if they understood, they wouldn't be bashing.
Because he shamelessly uses this forum for self-promotion while maintaining a closed minded philosophy that he is the guardian and keeper of all wave riding knowledge.
