Congratulations Roy!

Your creations belong in a sculptural exhibit.

Thankyou.... they also belong on waves as they are eminently functional and any artistic merit which they have is solely due to that function.

The boards are postmodern as their function is based on a pure surfing philosophy which discards the modernist social construct based perceived reality which has dominated 'modern' surfing for hundreds of years.

OK Roy - now it's time to put up or shut up.

You will have one of your boards in the continental US. Now is when many who have wanted to surf one of your boards will have an opportunity.

Who is willing to pick up the board host it for members of this forum to give it a try? While it's here we can arrange to have to moved to the west coast so those of us that have heard you for years can finally have an opportunity to ride one of you boards and confirm your boasts.

Let's set up a schedule now so we can take advantage of this great opportunity. I'm assuming you will help us with this Roy, right?

Can hardly wait.

Great call. Ship two over. One for the museum one to surf. The exhibit will pay for shipping. Just get two boards same big box. Keep it here for 4-6 months.

Good idea thanks NS

Don, roy doesn't validate his claims. Instead he uses $12 words and pseudo mathematics.

There is no way Roy would let any of us ride that sculpture.

When he let a profesional surfer ride one of his sculptures and gave a ride report, Roy claimed the pro wasn't riding the board properly.

Roy lives in a perpetual state of Roy-ality...not reality.
