    Aw, jeez, picking more fights is your gig....such a squabbling, irritable little child is Miss Thing. Throw in judgmental, too; when is the last time you posted anything that wasn't sniping at another Swellie?

    And stop trying to hijack yet another tread, good lawd, doesn't it ever get really old & really boring being you?

    honestly boys, face it, out of EVERYONE on the forum, Roy is the most famous, most developed and has contributed the most to the surf world. the rest of us just take and latch on and hope for a good ride.

    despite his misanthropy, arrogance, and narcissism, he brings the most to the table. it pains me to admit it, but its the truth.

    now don't get a big head Roy, you are still a raging khunt, but I can appreciate what you do even if it isnt my style. Once I get constipated and need a helmet, then we will be more copacetic

    and yank, you are still a bitter pissant with nothing...NOTHING I SAY!*

    Speaking of homoerotic fantastical wackadoodle posts, as you always accuse others of making, what you wrote here sounds like you're sitting in one big wet pile right about now, sparky. ugh

    This, I agree with, mostly. You can eliminate the ad hominem attacks, but, seeing as that is your engrained behavior..........

    I think you are really downplaying a lot of the smaller shapers who are also members here. They don't post much, but there have been some good threads in the past. However, you are correct about the fame aspect. Roy has made a lot of enemies (and a couple friends) on multiple forums, and his name is well known online. I think that is about as far as his fame goes, at least in the USA. If I asked any of the regulars at my local surf shop who Roy Stuart was, they would have no clue.

    Try them and see, it's certainly not the case on the West Coast.

    I'm all for prone riding of any sort.


    Yep it must be, just not the most versatile.

    I'll watch it this week and report back.

    Most of us in the civilised world are a passive part of American culture, whether we like it or not, especially when it comes to surfing, and I'm fine with that, with a few exceptions. So, there's really too much which is good to actually list.

    Short replies sorry, I'm going to try and resurrect myself for the first surf in months... 9ft @17 seconds please wish me luck.

    I have. No one has heard of your name. Now, if I ask if anyone has heard of some crazy guy asking over $1mil for a surfboard, a few people have heard about that. Ask people in a surf shop in NZ who Will Allison or Ricky Carroll is. I am guessing they would have no clue. However, in our region, almost every surfer knows about them and their contributions to East Coast shaping/surfing.

    Are you saying America is not civilized?

    Good luck Roy. Are you about to score Raglan? Thank you for your replies, maybe a video reaction to Lebowski? Dude, you're gonna love it.

    Roy, I would like to look further into the idea that a fulcrum would be required to generate flex. I believe that the flex of a surfboard is real. Obviously it is not as profound as the flex of a snowboard but I truly believe it does exist.

    With any surfboard, buoyancy is an important topic. This force can be shown as en equally distributed load. With an equally distributed load under the board and two point loads in the opposite direction (both of your feet), you are creating a difference in force. this difference in force will cause the deck of the surfboard to flex.

    Think about the same example using something other than a surfboard. How about standing in the middle of a boogie board. the board will flex around the point loads because of the difference in the forces being applied.

    Even though you don't have any sort of pin or fixed connection at either end of the board, there is still a force there. This force is equal and opposite to the force you apply to the top of the board in a downward direction. Newtons third law baybaaayyyy.

    Yes I agree that the buoyant force is equally distributed, but the planing forces are not. Some flex must occur but In don't think that it's quite in the way that we are being told.
