Re: Greetings from the Island thats not an Island.

Hurricane Humberto sent us some fun surf this week. A cell phone shot my daughter took of me on a solo session today at the end of the swell.

Re: Greetings from the Island thats not an Island.

Yes, A wicked thin 6' Paulownia alaia. I went like 3 for 100 on standing up on it when I finally figured out I'm tad big for such a small board (5'9" & 205lbs). Then on a similar day at this same spot I found that if I could get into the wave (the hardest part paddling in without fins) I could gener...

Greetings from the Island thats not an Island.

Hello everyone, Found paipo the hard way through years (about 20) of stand up surfing and the purchase of an alaia that thankfully was way to small for someone of my build to be successfully standing up on. For the last two years I've found myself riding my paipo and tossing on fins instead of grabb...
