I couldnt really tell if you were just being argumentative in that last post so incase you weren't...
no you cant demo them, they were made in the 80's, come on now, common sense. And in the 80's, a production model basically meant they made like 50 of them, so sure, it was pruduction. and even if it wasn't, does that invalidate that they tried it...NO. It would be very hard to find out if anyone other than mervin tried magne or someting similar before they did. Thats something you'd have to ask guys like jake burton, tom sims, chuck barfoot, the guys that have been in the designs since its birth. And no, rocker was not just an upturned nose and tail, it was ROCKER. The guys were pretty much using water skis, so they already had an upturned nose. I think on burtons site when you read about they're v rocker or whatever they're calling it, they give some sort of bio on some guy that tried it back in the day. could have been someone elses site though, but I know I read it somewhere.
And if you really do want genuine information on all this, do your own research, asking us is kinda pointless seeing as how I could have just blown that entire paragraph out my ass. I didn't, but that doesn't mean I couldn't have.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
