My conclusion of the whale bumps is that it might reduce drag but it's hard to quantify. They talk about it in the thread I just shared. Yes drawing concepts from nature is cool. Remember Icarus? He flew too high and as a result his wings melted.

So R-Stu surfs regularly and is clever enough to build a surfboard that he can ride. Why all the hating? If you don't like it...ignore him. Otherwise it seems like his credentials are in order to be a member in good standing. If you don't like his equipment, so be it. Your choice is to find the right board for you and not worry about what everyone else is riding.
Who cares if he may have an ego, he sure isn't the only one here who demonstrates that quality!

Pleeeeeeese leave Roy Stuart alooooooone! He's really not that bad for a kiwi. Semi functional art is always cool to look at and sometimes even fun to ride. A small battery powered trolling motor would be helpful to getting up to speed, but his boards have way more soul than most surfboards I see.

I say who cares! He has more knowledge than 3/4 of the people here. If ya ask him he ll even pass some onto ya if ya ask. Do ya put vets out to pasture just cuz u feel their old. NO! Whether or not ya like him, who cares. He's here n will stay!

Man, for someone who put on a display of sympathy searching....."That's it I'm leaving this site...."
it's in rather poor taste to call out whether someone should be "voted - off" of here.
I don't know much aboot Roy, as I stay away and respect youse guys' board threads, but everyone has the right to be on here. I'm an American and so is Roy, even though he's from a foreign land. This isn't some lame British surf predictin' site. This site is full of attitude and freedom - the way God intended surf predictin' sites to be. I give props to the powers that be in lightening the F up when it comes to un-American censorship and banishments. No one wins when people get banned or exiled.
Though Roy and those British people should cease trying to correct Americans spelling. English is OUR language, we invented it, and we damn well know how to spell it.
