    I maent what I said at the start: 'better at making waves'... and I also qualified it further by saying 'in most conditions'.

    Why do you have Occy as a "favorite" if he does all those ridiculous turns? He rides waves all wrong yet he's your "favorite"... Weird

    I'm not defending the kiwi, just stating what has been said on this forum many times before.
    The part about Roy's style is true but the waves is not. I too enjoy waves on his boards. Yes it is possible to do this on east coast swell. From what I've gathered from brew master it seems to me like the Carolina beaches are slop onshore garbage thus Roy boards have no place. Again not true. Roy makes many different shapes for different conditions in my opinion. And I don't think the south is garbage surfing but I hear you guys say that Roy's boards wouldn't work on your swells. Roy's boards work quite well where I surf in New England. Just sayin.

    Uh, ok, gnome.

    And you wonder why gnome was banned from Sway's....

    "Roy was banned initially after a somewhat lengthy period during which he found himself caught up in some mutual exchanges that became somewhat hostile. At some point, one of the moderators was physically challenged to a duel in the water by Roy."

    I've trained in modern Arnis and my father has hosted many seminars where grand master Remy Presas was the guest of honor. RIP. As well trained extensively in jujutsu and judo. Also other marital arts. All for hobby tho. Except judo.

    But I like surfing more

    I've watched Roy's stick and sword fighting videos. All excellent videos I might add.

    Sticks are fun, so are hands:

    Hey I didn't know that.

    I'm the NZ representative of Virgil Cavada's Applied Escrima and am a student of Bobby Taboada's... which sounds good but I'm really a beginner with 34 years practice. I just go for a few basics with lots of variation, just like my surfing

    Classic video by the way, that's a great dog you have.

    "F8ck you Yankee" has to be tongue in cheek coming from maine though?

    Most of my Arnis training was years ago and only for fun. I recall wielding retan sticks and wind milling them. Then I got to wield some of remays bolo machetes and perform the same wind mill. Radanda x. My judo was at the national level however, competing annually at the AM CAN Tournament and various other tournaments.

    I would love to have a randouri with Yankee and carter.

    Watch the video that Roy put up that's about 12 minutes long where he's talking about how he loves the internet and it shows his house and he's driving the bus or whatever it is. I think around the 10 or 11 minute mark he starts saying he doesn't travel for the best waves, he makes the best boards for how he wants to surf on the waves around him. He is all about efficient surfing and his version of efficient surfing is one where you get the maximum distance with the minimum effort. That's what he likes to do.

    Roy tell me if I'm wrong but I believe I'm right.

    Roy's said it and I'm telling you again, this conversation has been had over and over again on many different forums. Read it once and get over it.

    I honestly believe the guy has got something of value to add but a beat dog is quick to bite. He could learn a bit of humility but it's evident we all could.
