Does this gentleman really need an introduction...
Well the thread was started discussing fin setups. What does Roy recommend?
Didn’t Roy sell a board for a lot of money at one point?
I’m looking to get my hands on a 10’6 mega fish glider. Might go custom.
I already got a 12’2 and think going to 11 will be more of the same but a 10’6 twin might scratch my itch.
I dunno. If a 12 ft comes up in Rhode Island I might grab.
How about width for 12'ers... Seems like the norm is 23-24" x 3.5"... Most of Skips and Hall's are around the 23" for Eagles and Fish Simmons in the 12'... And guys like Larmo and J Phillips are up closer to 24". I'm 6'1" 180lbs and comfortable on big boards. Any suggestions in the width department? I typically like 11' closer to 23.25 or 23.5 but haven't ridden/ordered a 12' yet.
I like the wider boards when you get that long. It adds some additional curve in the outline to allow the board to be more maneuverable. I feel one of the problems with a lot of gliders is as they stretch out the profile the lines become too straight.
I think 23.5 to 24 is what you need. I don’t see how it would work at 23 or less cause it’d be thick and long with narrow profile.
Yea, he spammed the heck out if the internet for a few years until someone actually coughed up a lot of dough for one of his tunnel-finned creations. Went quiet afterwards, I wonder why...?
Ah Roy! An earlier fixture here. Threads exploded sending women and children running and screaming along with men crying! Yep, his ship came in with rumor's of a million or so pay out for his wooden board and never to be heard from again. But that fin design of his keeps resurfacing here on the Forum. Thank for the memories AK!
I've owned about a dozen boards over 11 ft long. Most of them were 23" wide +/-, but my boards were generally narrower and thicker than the norm. This experimental 11'-9" was one of my favorites at only 21" wide. I also had a 12 ft x 21.5" which was my least favorite ...
