    I find it very weird that a guy that makes boards from trees he grows next to his school bus/home with his 9 children would get involved with 3d printing

    I think that's pretty rad...combination of renewable + high tech.

    Oh look, it's scotty the new wayne. Only a matter of time before you go off, now that the coast is clear, eh bucko?

    I think it's also extremely weird as nynj put it: next thing you know, cloned gnomes from the 3d printing machine.

    Societies which are in decline do this sort of thing.

    Undoubtedly some members here would have found the interview interesting enough to listen to, but those who are outraged by it get their way.

    In any industry which is as commercialised as surfing is, bleating about solo operators posting their stuff is ultra lame.

    It was a National Radio interview, hardly spam.

    Anyway there's another interview on NZ's National programme airing on Saturday, please don't tune in since this place is not for promotion of personal agendas of the creative kind, only of personal agendas of the hating naysaying variety!

    Presumably anything I post is self promotion by definition since you all now know that I make surfboards, ergo it is illogical and limpwristed not to ban me altogether. Seeing any post I make might possibly remind one of my occupation.

    So go on, make your day tell admin that I should be banned to protect the innocent.

    (pokes tongue out. lols.)

    Yankee, I dont even know what that means. I was just saying that I think making boards out of trees and using 3d printing to build fins are both pretty cool. Why are you comparing me to a member who got offed for religious spamming?

    Did getting your thread deleted and an infraction point upset you that bad? As much as I dislike you I don't think you should be banned. You can post whatever you like surf related as long as it is not a link about YOUR PRODUCT becasue then you are getting free advertising. To be honest when you first arrived here a year ago I was going to report your post as spam but I did not becasue like I have said I think we should be unmoderated. But after many folks wanted some control over the arguing and hate (you, Charles and many others asked for this) look where it got us. Like I told Charles you can not have it both ways, if you want the mods to punish Yankee and me for insults then you have to follow the no spam rules. At the end of the day posting links about your product is spam and taking advantage of this site that others pay to advertise on. Your thread about your fins was blatant sales pitch and should have been deleted right away.

    Get over yourself, you are not being persecuted or discriminated against, you are not a martyr and you are not special. You make surfboards and have used this site for a year now to push your product on it. Free lunch is over!

    Roy's threads and posts are always surf related and it's a very different perspective. We need this around here. The surf indistry needs this too. I vomit when I see a kid who just buys a short board but is a kook and can't even read a beach break. It's god damn disappointing really. The surf industry has kids by the balls with the Kelly slater "shreddah" cheese grater image. It's disgusting and tasteless. Not to mention the affordable private label boards that are well priced come from a cnc machine in Taiwan then it's dinged up by a kook for a few summers maybe more but then it goes into land fill where it resists composting.

    More Roy, Tom wegner, grain surfboards, and types like that need to prevail. Wood is good. Set Roy free.
