I just re-read my posts in this thread. Not one sentence reflected any negativity about Brian or OO boards. Certainly none bashed -- as in falsely criticized -- either. In fact, I complimented both. If you attribute positivity or negativity to facts, that's a problem only your shrink or grammar teacher can remedy. If you think a buyer has no right to facts about the technology in a product he's considering, ask some astute buyers whether they agree. If you think it's OK to keep saying someone's own life history is "twisted, misinterpretation, disinformation" without even TRYING to back it up, you're actually ill, and will some day be in court defending yourselves in a libel or slander suit. (Can you imagine how long Baja Dean would even LIVE if he acted in person the way he does in this forum?) If you think it's OK to hijack yet ANOTHER thread for your vendetta and try to make anyone believe otherwise, you live on a different, much dumber, planet than most of us. And if you think the First Amendment applies only to your own vitriolic speech ... how's the air up there?

NOVAAN, if I were in a position to apologize for these guys, I would, but only they can do that. I'm sorry your thread was subjected to their penchant for defecation at anyone's expense. Your only contribution to the debacle was in asking for the truth. Boy, was THAT a mistake.

As for the rest of you, if ya wanna attack me, have the courtesy and the spine to do it in your own separate thread rather than in a third party's thread.

Poor choice, U2. It simply demonstrates yet again your and others' insistence on making accusations with no attempt whatsoever to back them up even when asked to do so dozens of times in defense of your own credibility. Examples from the thread you cite include your own
"The distortion or lack of knowledge concerning concrete facts, is not acceptable"
and Bugaboo's
"Isobars' never ending stream of egotistical, ill-informed bullshit. He is a role model of exactly how I do not want to be. The scope of his ignorance is vast but he manages to make his brand of stupid quite unique.

Without his exponentially increasing number of posts, iW forum pages would be boring. More importantly, since he never misses an opportunity to turn a concise thought into a rambling, often times stomach churning diatribe, there would be nothing here to read
"

In fact, there seems to be more insistence that I continue or even EXPAND my typing than cut it back. Exactly how do that plus still more unfounded accusations prove I fabricate anything? And what do your baseless accusations say about the reliability of your fin advice?

BUT IN ANOTHER THREAD, PLEASE. I realize NOVAAN seems to have reached his decision, so further responses to his question are moot, but, jeez, have some pride and stop hiding your false narrative in someone else's thread.

A perfect analogy by swchandler:

"If you go to the supermarket, and someone else's kid is throwing a tantrum, you have to live with it. Unfortunately, that's life. Filtering folks out isn't going to work, because you can't limit life to only what you want to hear. The screaming kid is always there whether you like it or not."

Iso is that screaming kid.

The Open Ocean website is updated with new action shots in the Gallery and Windsurf sections. We’ll follow up with more technical info about the new Ripper/Slasher models. Until then call Brian for information. Craig gave a pretty through review of it in this thread and have some great pictures of him on the website! Also have pics of team rider Dave Brown launching some big air in the Gorge.

One of the searches I made indicated that Open Ocean is "permanently closed".

Brian Hinde has been hinting for a number of years that he wanted to retire. Seems that he might have crossed that threshold.
