Re: Rick Surfboards Paipo

nice looking board, but what a horrible place for a leash, i guess it was iriginallt leashless and when someone wanted to use one there only idea was to drill the fin!

Re: Does it sound like a good paipo ?

That's about the same dimensions as my boards. I ride 21.5 wide which is a very standard width for a 42" bodyboard for the last 30 years. Should work finless too.
I wish i could sell my used boards for 300E, nobody seems interested if I advertize them at half that :(

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

These popped up the other day, shows how little of a board is in the water.

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Just reviewed your chambered board. Very cool. How does it ride compared to your SDF boards? I got the shape of it wrong, to much belly in the nose, so it needed a powerful wave to be planing on the back, if the wave went soft and i needing to move forward to speed up then the belly pushed to much ...

Re: Nose thickness

I don't have a "too vertically" I can take off straight on a wave to the point of air dropping and not have a problem nose-diving. By straight, do you mean straight facing to shore? I much prefer to be on the board when I kick into a wave than behind the board and pulling up onto the boar...

Re: Nose thickness

I don't experience any problems with pearling the nose ever, which is why I am an advocate of the shorter board. If you go too vertical on a take-off, what happens? I dusted off the HPD yesterday. I'm not a fan of having to push forward onto the board,at take-off. If you rode one all the time, I gu...

Re: Nose thickness

Foil.png The first board in this series was 2 1/2 - 2 11/16 - 1 3/4; the board previous to this one was 1 3/4 - 1 3/4 - 1, so changes recently are more subtle and in the distribution. I have the same nose rocker 2 7/8 but in a shorter board. I have never really considered or changed nose thickness.

Re: Nose thickness

I think a lot of this is also the length of nose in front of the normal riding position. I don't experience any problems with pearling the nose ever, which is why I am an advocate of the shorter board. The longer the board the more nose rocker in front of the rider you are going to need to have.

Re: TBG5

I have seen in some articles them ay that some pros can't tell the difference between eps and PU and then dont feel more boyant, but i guess if you used a 3.3pcf PU blank and a 3.3pcf EPS blank then they would be the same. I suppose the EPS boards can shave off enough weight to make that much of a b...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Bodyboards have no rocker, just a nose kick in the front 6", other than that they are flat, I guess in a quad concave you could say that it gives the tail 1/4" rocker.

Did you see the chambered wood board i already made? https://mypaipoboards.org/forum3/viewto ... ?f=4&t=544

Re: TBG5

I also realized the with PU foam being less buoyant than EPS, I would have to adjust my formula for volume. So, now instead of 23L, I'm targeting 25L from my understanding of physics two items of 23L will have the same buoyancy, the only differing factor will be weight. So is the PU board going to ...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Usher, what is about the Hubb that leads you to say its design is faster at the expense of 'turning' than others,e.g. MND? The aspect ratio and dims are close except for the WP being further forward. On older models if used to have a straighter rail, it appears now not to. Lords info is related to ...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

But in recent years the thought comes to me that maybe Morey invented something that was 60% "there" right at the beginning. That seems insane, right? But it's going to be 50 years Nels The original Morey Boogie Board was 45 inches, long, 25 inches wide, So that's a 1.8 length to width ra...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Follow-up to previous post: Jay Reale of ebodyboarding.com here in California told me a couple of years ago that bodyboard materials start to give it up after a year. Heat and other factors make them start to deteriorate. Inevitable no matter the care. I'm one of the people who hang on for years. T...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Wow, my eyes tricked me. I looked at actual specs of MND compared to Hubb board. There is actually more difference between wp to nose and wp-tail of hub than MND. The defining difference is in the NTWP (Nose to wide point). Hubb is further forward than MND. I suppose that makes it look less rounded...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Hub design is quite unusual in the bodyboard pro world. most including myself ride a board that has a curve that balances of speed/maneuverability. His leans more to the speed side. He is also one of the few pros that ride a battail, this also promotes more speed, but make the tail looser and easier...
