Re: Paipo from WWII 1940s

If you really want a price Randy Rarick is probably the guy. He's on FB. Did the woman say when he used it in Hawaii? What does the bottom look like?

Re: Bending plywood Paipos

Why don't you send some photos. I've never tried to bend plywood, but the archives have some information. Your husband is a lucky guy. There are 3 basic methods to bend ply: 1) soak as you did, 2) steam and 3) clamp. 1) From Poobah 2010 http://rodndtube.com/paipo/forum/viewtopic.php?t=881 I've been ...

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).

Mexico

Does anyone venture down to Baja Mexico, or know surfguide/tours that do?
