    Question huh?

    what livesurfish said...

  2. #22
    So i made it the first 5 mins....Had to stop when he said "...my first board was a success..."

    Not to humble there are we??

    By what and who's measure was it a success? I can say my first surfboard was a success to. As i learned from the process and had a finished, surfable board in front of me when all was said and done. Heck i even surfed it a few times.
    Would i call it a success in the actual sense of producing a quality board? Not one bit. In fact i think it lasted a few months before i ripped the glass off and started anew. Now of course, just because i couldnt make a quality board doesnt mean everybody else can't tho right? So i just wanna hear more of the story.

    no one else here got interviewed for their contributions to surfing, however trivial/offbeat/arrogant these noted contributions may be, this should stay, read it or not, up to you

    Is there a way to read it?

    there is a way not to read it: dont click on the link of Roy's threads.

    and you can totally not listen to it by not clicking the link to the radio show

    I already did click it. Hence the question i had. However, if there was a way to read say the transcripts of the interview i'd be way more inclined to check that out cause you could skim thru the fluff to the good stuff. And you wouldnt have to deal with the talking.

    Thought you maybe figured something helpful out.

    I agree and that's the point I was making really, that it's hard to say how long it takes to learn how to make surfboards.

    If the board works it is a success, but one always keeps learning. It's never cut and dried.

    I was hoping for the sake of all that is good you were going to answer the question with this sort of answer, yet you went with the "i was good from day 1"

    Not really quite the same. But hey to each their own.

    I was good from day one ( the first board was very good) and I keep learning.

    Am I supposed to say that board #1 was no good when it rode really well? A lot of thought went into the first design.

    Also since in your haste you stopped after that comment you didn't get the full answer, which included the comment you were after i.e. that one always keeps learning.
