Just look at your videos you post, always going straight down the line, no snaps, no cutbacks, no top turns, no noseriding, not even a barrel. To make sure you get my point here is what you said exactly:

    "inefficient tricks and other socially based style requirements." Sound like you think we should all surf your way.
    Carter lets start positive now and stick to design or I'll have to issue you an infraction for trolling

    I imagine I will want to surf like Roy when my body has given out. In the meanwhile Id love to do 'inefficient tricks'

    I am assuming an inefficient trick is a girl who cant clean the house fast enough

  3. I dig Roy's different outlook on surfing. I'm looking forward to listening to this later on

    The way im saying the Roy lb's are inefficient is cause of that nose kick. In my eyes (and head) it really serves no purpose. I mean they are longboards right? The gun you posted has that nose rocker to stick steep, heavy waves. The roy's are made (from what it looks like in his vids) to cruise, no death defying air drops that require heavy rocker to keep your nose from digging into the steep part of the drop.

    And now onto the fishes and simmons'. I love fishes. Above is a profile of mine. Now the parallel profile, i dont know is really the inefficient part. I think is the wasted nose rocker. Not a factor on the fish, or simmons.

    How much nose rocker do you think the olo has in the picture I posted ? It's not more than 6 inches image.jpg


    With any less I'd probably be pearling more, I have never pearled with this ride. The board is 10-9 so relative to length it's not abnormal. Here's a 10-6 sup foil and rocker comparison image.jpgimage.jpg

    So really the only difference is foil and thickness distribution.

    If we all chip in money to send you to NZ for a fun filled week of the old "in and out" with Roy, will you stop riding his nuts on here? Honestly, man. I will pitch in $20.

    I see grasshopper I see. I think I comprehend this whole messy misunderstanding. Your riding a big rocker stick with constant rails. I like. Looks fast as heck in Mr stuarts youtubes archive.

    You defend him when he doesn't even need defending. Any comment that isn't positive, and you are there. We get it, you love him. Do something about it.
