and whats the deal with the gay shark decal... that sucks! And you thought the pro's turned your offer down for fear of losing their careers.... not likely... they would have been laughed out of the water long before that.
Dearest Marco, ...Ah shucks, you're being a mean negative bully and calling names. Pretend this is a junior high class on reading and comprehension. You implied that I didn't think Greenough is still kicking down the shit. I never once said that in my former statements. Come on now... scroll up right now......it was a person named Nathan who said we should continue on from where Greenough left off with flex ideas in the 60's. I wasn't the historian who implied Greenough quit working on flex. He may still be the guru of modern research into flex theories inbetween film projects for all I know. My comment in its' proper context suggested that the flex guru in the 60's didn't have some of the polymer modifications that have become available just in the last couple of months. No one on earth did. I hope he is a polymer engineer and creating something we haven't seen yet. Dooder.......this is something to look forward to........ I'm not making any claims or cheap talk....... I'm just saying the future looks real bright for custom shapers out there with materials that some of us are working on that will give you value added to compete against Asian products.. I'm just saying quit being pussyboy idiots that make fun of Surftech and the Fat Penguin and start improving your own program. Or be boring, buy a pallet of cigarettes and relish the past with your best friend " the magazine". I'm sure you're really a real swell fellow though Marco, .....geez your the best...... you were probably just sore yesterday when said those things. I'll Love You Always, Delbert de Von Pumpernickel ................... .................... I don't mind being lumped in with the Fat Penguin guy..... he's top-notch.
Dearest Marco , geez .....I was totally impolite. You asked me to make a surf film like Greenough's latest. Scroll up a ways............see, you did. I'm just not so good with cameras or composition so I'll have to pass. Thanks for having the confidence in a guy named Delbert de Von Pumpernickel though. You're the Best!
well the guy who copied your piece payed a shit load for the plans, because I remember him saying something about a fee for design and i thought then and there that there is truth to the fact of a sucker being born everyday and assholes like yourself taking advantage of them. (I didnt see him come back and rub my nose in it) Anybody can make something of that volume catch waves and go across, just look at all the cheap mals that are out there that are shaped by people looking for quick glory, only a good surfer knows the difference and you my friend must not be one of them otherwise you would not be persuing your absurd theories. As for the photos, I learnt long ago that you cannot rely on photographic evidence, what might look right in photo form (especially the surf industry)in real life can be very different. I cant work out where you are from, are you from Oz (man I hope not)or hopefully from somewhere else? Who is Paul Cole? is he an Aussie? if so funny that I have never heard of him. He must be way underground !!! Hey your not that dickhead that I saw in the Maldives trying to ride that oversized aircraft carrier with fins going in every direction are ya, if so, YEH that one worked REAL well, if you wanted to go backwards up the face of a wave and end up watching perfection pass you by. Or was he another fat penguine dream-alike like yourself. Please do us all a favour and go and design in some other field preferably a circle crop field where we might have the chance of aliens taking you away to be appreciated on their planet. KR
KR beats chest to rouse agreement......the tribe sits quietly to ponder......keep it simple KR with "imperical evidence" or the tribe will not understand it! Basicly you are upset that people ride all sorts of crappy boards regardless of how good yours may be..... How many boards do you build KR by hand totaly no preshaping or preblown shaped blanks there hey........do you use MDI or TDI...... leaps forward from Cedar......Are you stripping down your blanks with a rasp file......little leaps forward here and there..nice and safe......Fluid Gliders son....current planing surboard relies on surface area for lift......FP wraps the fluid over a lifting bodyform with a stabiliser fin system....very simple realy. http://www.geocities.com/wunderboyi/ninetysixpercent.html
Mate I think that the tribe had already spoken before me, I'm just sinking the boots in for fun, I am disappointed that you did not answer my questions though. Oh well your still moving so I will give you one more kick before going back into the party. I wish everyone thought like you then it would'nt be as hard to become the worlds best shaper. KR
KR if that is all you are worried about.......then you ARE the worlds best shaper mate.....A lengend in your own luchtime ! SO when you get back to the party is that what you tell the chicks ! or do you impress the younger men in the crowd with your hand skills? Is that a spokeshave in your shorts or are you just happy to see me! http://www.geocities.com/wunderboyi/ninetysixpercent.html
