Re: Mini Paipo a gather up at European Wooden Surfboard Meetup

Nice selection of boards at http://medswells.appspot.com/european-w ... day-1.html

Does surfing the Mediterranean require a different board?

Re: New board

Jeff Quam had something to say about following the line of the wave.


I have also ridden this board extensively, predominately finned, but it rides fine finless. It has a more traditional BB bottom.

Re: New board

I'll see what Chris says about altering fin cant. I know there isn't much thickness in the boards. Regarding the utility off fins. I've never had any problems in steep/hollow waves. The two instances where I recall the tail noticeably losing grip, but not totally, was when doing a bottom turn and go...

Re: New board

Dimensions are similar to other boards: 54 x 21 x 1 7/8". So far it's been ridden finless, which I'll probably stick to. I'm not entirely sure that it is suited to fins. The couple of times I rode the previous version with fins, they didn't seem to interact well with the wings. I'd talked to the sha...

Re: New board

Sort of fortunately I saw this happen - I was on the bus moving between terminals when I saw my boards fall off the luggage trolley and go under the wheel of the cart. If I hadn't seen it I would have got to the destination and gone - what the %$&* happened to my boards. The airline were good about ...

New board

The latest board - intended to replicate board 7. I only had one wave in a very crowded surf and it went pretty well.

The reason I got this one, was an airline luggage cart ran over my previous two boards.

Calling all Europeans

It has taken a while, but I am in the process of updating my website of the past and some present history of early prone surfing in continental Europe. http://home.brisnet.com.au/~bgreen/Europe/index2.shtml I'm looking for old photos of boards, people surfing or making them and any information about...

Re: happy whatevers and merry xmas

Gday Kage,

All the best to you as well.

2019 was a very mixed year.

I was hoping to post some next board photos but the board is waiting to be sanded (it is a duplicate of a board that had an unhappy meeting with a airline transfer cart).

Re: Greetings from Portugal

Boa noite, Krusher on this forum has made a few paipo based on bodyboard shapes. These were foam and fibreglass. A ply board will have a lot less buoyancy than a foam bodyboard. Fins probably aren't necessary, though this will depend on the waves you surf and the experience that you are looking for....

Re: Immigrant board Mk2

Looking at your board, I was thinking you could make one without the wings, but include an attachment so you could fit different size wings, like FCS.

They could also be trialled on a standard board, if the rail was flat enough or there was a specific shape, that allowed for this.
