Smart move Jacko: These guys are giving your product free publicity by taking the time to write screeds about it, but all you see is some imaginary slight, and so go off on one, just as you usually do in social media, thereby pissing everyone off and undermining your own publicity efforts.

Really, you should just try to roll with it, and try some charm, rather than raising your fists metaphorically at any comment that might somehow be (mis)interpreted as criticism. Chill, mate. The whole world is not out to get you. See the bigger picture.

Haha i think you have been on the forms long enough to know i can never Zip it when maybe most would ;D I gave up trying to be that kind of guy along time ago and now it is kind of what you see is what you get but i like it this way as there is nothing to hide and people either like it or don't. I never get pissed off and yes could use the smiley face thing more at times 100%.
You must admit it would be a super boring world on here if we just all agreed all the time and we didn't have a few forum fights  from time to time! I hope someone would not decide to buy a ONE board just because of something i say but if that is ever the case then i guess there is not much i can do on that front. If i worked for ONE i would more than likely fire me but since i can not do that i guess we are all stuck with my over the top dribble sometimes ;D

I also like the fact i don't run a brand that hides behind other people as most brands would get someone else to reply to stuff like this where as i am more than happy to nut it out and if i am wrong (which i never am by the way) i am happy admit it! 

Now back to real business i am off to foil Tweed river!

Get that foil design right jacko and makesure it has less bolts and no hollow alloy crap and go straight to carbon world!

A couple of anecdotal truths I've learnt over the years:

1) Design is 99% plagiarism and 1% true innovation. There is no shame or harm in being influenced by others, from any field and any form of watersports.

2) What a brand says publicly does influence peoples buying habits - irrespective of how good or bad the product is.

Very nice design. One can tell just by looking at it how it works. Awesome to see hollow light boards coming out.

You mentioned it works well upwind in bumps. Do you stand in the same place as for flatwater on the board or shift a bit?

You can stand pretty much in the same spot, maybe creep forward just a little, this usually happens anyway when paddling upwind on most boards.

Here are some more pics and if you check out SUPracer.com he used it for part of the 11 cities race and quite a few people also tried it with very good feedback.

Kenny Kenko has a vid of him turning it as well on his Instagram if anyone wants to see how it turns.

That board looked awesome in the photo's. If I were still racing SUP's I'd buy one. I'd love to produce test data for that thing.

He rode the 21.5 wide.
