Thread: Roy on Radio
Parallel profile boards have been around a very long time. And their proven abilities with them.
Can you say Simmons?
was the original simmons really PP tho? I think it tapered a bit in the nose but im basing this off what ive seen HWS guys post pictures of. it does appear parallel profile a good bit id agree
Yes it was a parallel profile.
All of Roy's boards taper both nose and tail so what board of his are you saying is of this design? And whats with all the rocker in his shapes? Take some of that out and you'd have a way smoother glide. Less squatting to make the sections.

leetymike, rcarter, et al...Arguing with Roy is like invading Russia. Its just turns into a long, tedious, never ending grind until you forget why you even went there to begin with. And if you finally get to Moscow you say "that's it? that's WTF we came all this way for? that's the prize?" and then you turn around and start the long slow march home...no win situation.
I mean, its not like arguing with PJB or Chuckles where there's some actual entertainment value.
When you reach the Vistula, just turn around, go home and enjoy one of these. You'll be much happier in the end.

I'm not arguing. Just talking design.
That image from Roy's own website shows some pretty extreme rocker. He can even see in front of him! That is not because its the same thickness from nose to tail.
Pipe guns of the 60's and 70's which are pretty darn parallel profiled out, dont even have the appearance of rocker like these boards do, and those were made for the barrels of PIPE!!!

My boards are certainly parallel profile, I don't think that the simmons boards are although they do tend in that direction.
The most obvious parallel profile predecessor to my boards is the boogie board.
Pipe boards from that era were not parallel profiled out by any means, but it shows that times have changed when people rewrite history to claim it.
