The guy is a kook and he fell off four out of six waves while trying to ride the board from the tail like a mal, his review means absolutely nothing.
that design has been proven countless times in waves up to 4 times overhead and it is so far ahead of any of the regular longboards that it's ridiculous.
I know, whereas you lot merely guess on the basis of BS assumptions.

But can't say that I will be going down Roy's route, I only have the one house to mortgage so probably couldn't afford anyway, but a 10 footer that you can pop up on the nose of (how tall have you got to be for that, 8'6?) grab a rail and take a 12ft drop not only seem slightly dubious but obviously outweighs my meagre talents

Phil Edwards style boards come to mind, not saying you have to get an original of course...
Wide point forward, or center, slight down rail with an edge in the tail for release - remember edges DO NOT create hold/bite like the popular myth. They release cleanly for control. Pulled in tail and nose, and a width around 21ish. No need for super wide outlines when you got power on tap...

I'm just watching Tom Wegener on a similarly mis shaped longboard on a bloody big wave on Siestas And Olas...
Well how bout that... He made the wave.
