Re: Non Skinny Paipo

Given the reasons for the nose design, does it add much thickness? You'd assume it does but the nose rocker would thin it out a bit. Has it been in the water yet? I naturally used the cut off from the front of the board for the scarf to get the increased nose rocker, handle and leash plug into the ...

Re: Wet suit cool water

A couple of the wetsuit makers do a vest with the hood attached. I have one I use when it's really cold and I put it on last which does a really good job of sealing off the neck and zipper. If it's really cold, I sometimes wear a thin wool sleeveless undershirt under the wetsuit as well. It works su...

And I think I mentioned earlier kayaks, and i believe paddleboards in design phase, have various methods to join two parts. Having handled several of the Bi and Tri sect type boards; They are...

Looks great
What is the extra thickness on the front for ?

The added thickness scarfed to the nose allows for increased nose rocker, provides a convenient hand hold and increases the strength of the leash plug.

Re: Skinny Paipo

I made a 15" x 5'5" alaia style board a few years back. It's the one I use when the surf is small.

Re: fish the movie

Thanks Uncle G, looks like it was a great exhibition. Was this the one Richard Kelvin had something to do with? If not, do you know who put it together? Yes, this was the exhibit put together by Richard KENVIN. The catalog from this show (mentioned above) is excellent. https://mitpress.mit.edu/book...

Re: Paipo from WWII 1940s

Boards similar to that were fairly common in Hawaii, California and the UK back between the world wars.
I would guess it's made from redwood, far and away the most common wood used in surfboards in that era.
Not worth a lot of money unless it has some interesting provenance. Cool find tho'
