    Agree with Veterano and others. Conditions dictate craft ridden.

    Lots of surfing up in Olympia eh...?

    Thank God this guy and his "insightful friend" are up there in Oly looking out for "nearly all the longboard surfers these days." Who wants to head out get a re-purposed paddleboard? Anybody? It's avant-garde? Thank you Paul, thank you Roy. Keeping it real for the rest of us. Fucking classic. Matching foil hats I'd bet.

    This is the same, tired, generic argument against longboarders. And its actually really easy to use this forum and its archives to prove this argument is just a load of crap.

    It dawns on me that Roy eschews the use of foil as it leads to alzheimer's and other baked potato born illnesses.

    Perhaps matching Viking style helmets... "Spear and magic helmet!" ... "Spear and maaaaaaagic hellllllllmet!"

    Actually I like hearing about different takes on it.
    However it could have been done differently.

    My observation here is Paul Jensen just put his thoughts about his board and about riding it. Not touting "his way is the only way" type hype, as Roy often does.

    THEN. Roy comes along and bangs on Paul for not adhering to his prescribed way of thinking, proving he just can't leave such a thread alone.

    And t-h-e-n, some of you other guys start banging on Paul for saying what he seems to truly enjoy and throwing trash talk his way. Paul didn't do a "Roy". He didn't tell anyone they were wrong-headed in their designs, Paul just said what he liked!

    Roy, get out of this and try, just try, to not hijack the thread. We all know you are a great craftsman and might likely keep remembering that about you if you just would put a little humility where your mouth goes in cases like this. Paul did not say you have bad shapes. Paul didn't bring you up at all.

    You other guys, Good Lord RELAX, a little more understanding and happy vibes toward Paul, who though not totally my sort of shapes, does display a very good level of craftmanship.
