    I was just checking out longboards today, and was reading about wooden boards. A quick search brough me to "Roy Stuart" surfboards. They looked nice until I saw the price. Here is an example for 1.3 million! http://www.roystuart.biz/p/dragon.html
    Is that the actual price of the board or am I misreading. Has anyone used these boards? I've never heard of them and never heard of a professional using them. Do they actually sell these boards for so much? Are wooden boards always a lot more expensive?

    See other wonderful thread. He is serious, the only positive reviews come from people you have never heard of, and the only videos of the thing show Roy in a goofy suit and helmet ski-surfing on some beautiful waves, very slowly.

    Well it's kinda both. He IS serious... but he IS also a JOKE... perhaps that's what you meant?

    Worth every penny! Best boards in the WORLD! All others pale in comparison. You're a kook if you don't get one.

    you know, i have a lot of respect for roy as a craftsman & for sticking w/ what he believes is best, even in the face of all the criticism & mockery he faces. i don't agree w/ his design theories, but that's another story.

    *discalimer-this is a serious post. no sarcasm has been used in the typing of this message.*

    I heard that if you don't agree with Roy, you're wrong.

    Now I know who you are!!!! I can't believe you repelled from that helicopter with those boards strapped to your back and rode all of them at once!!! And then you had that huge bonfire with eight of the boards so you could driver the price up on that one remaining board. Brilliance...Capitalism...

    Wow, just checked, you weren't kidding...you really pi$$ed that guy off. You pi$$ed me off when we were debating the Muslim population of Indo and I never even thought to do that. You should be proud that you made rasta van man that angry.

    Haha.... I guess I should have included my disclaimer too... I guess sarcasm really doesn't come through on here1! But, I do believe the white trash thing. You're from Jerz, so you must be a fist pumping, orange skinned juice bag... Unless you have a ROY STUART. In that case you'd be the sickest ripper on the EC and maybe even the whole world!
