    I'll be up in Portland tonight so I may stop by kennebunk on my way home tomorrow. What time are you gonna be there ? And I'd be down to just surf and let u try it out. I'm still dialing the board in so i could care less if I actually get footage this weekend, next week looks better anyway. 16 seconds at 3-6 ft that's pretty good. But yeah send me a pm and we can exchanger numbers to meet up. I'm down to let anyone who is interested to try the board. They won't break it it's very strong.

    So speaking of Roy's boards, it's been about a month and a half, any ride reports yet?

    Clemson the gang buster went pretty well. It's weight doesn't counter it's buoyancy at all she's is tad over weight but it surfs for sure. My younger brother who is a hell bent short boarder says " it's smooth and easy to catch waves with, the tunnel feels nice but it's hard to explain". The board is plenty fast and quite stable also.

    I know my words are just words and you won't believe me until its filmed so in the meantime enjoy this picture of the beautiful single concave. And this isn't a Roy board it is however built using his standard 4 layer torsion box lamination method aka the parallel profile. Clemson you should really try building a parallel profile it's really neat!

    Gangbuster reminds me of this 9'6" built in 2003.. apart from the size difference and bottom concave. It was pre the SUP resurgence but was 27" wide and so buoyant that it could be stood upon when at rest, increible for small short period waves especially when onshore with lots of weird irregularities in the wave, it could roll it's mega thick round rail through any sort of curve and could be sideslipped with control.

    I still have it, just need to put a new deck on as it was stored in the ceiling under a corrugated iron roof for about 5 years and the beautiful redwood deck cracked up in the heat of many summers.

    That's a cool board Roy. Another one of your unique creations ! How does one go about replacing the deck on a board like this ? What's it's name ? How many layers ?

    That's the 'Acid drop' made ( under canvas) from redwood, with 6 layers, 90mm thick 135 litres volume.

    Replacing the deck hasn't happened yet, I've removed most of it which is the hard part, adding a new one could be done piece by piece or by laying a new panel on. Although the board is a blast in tiny sloppy short period conditions it's a bit too specialised for general use so she just keeps on hanging there while I make new stuff.

    While looking for more pictures of the beast I came across this picture from the same place and year ( sorry I don't mean to hijack your thread):

    Good god that's a huge board ! 20 ft ? There's no hijacking so post away. I'd love to see some more pictures of your experimental days.

    That super long board in the picture must cruise deep unbroken ground swell very nicely, I'm assuming that's what it aims for

    Hi Charles,

    The board is 17 feet long. As you say she's ideal for swell gliding and I've had some epic 600 yard rides on mostly unbroken swell with her. The board is also capable of riding breaking waves, once one overcomes the natural instinct not to take off on 70 pounds of redwood.

    I still have the board.

    Here's a rocker shot. As it turns out the rocker is almost identical to the flat rockered Phil Edwards Malibu blank.

    That's you in an over head wave with the 17 footer ! That's pretty cool. Very unique for sure.
    Surfing the beast in waves that big seems like an undertaking to say the least. What's it like to get caught inside ?
