Few Seconds of 1960's Paipo Riding

Cool video of some 1960's Pipeline. There are a few seconds of a paipo ride starting around 2:30.

Re: Swim fins/flippers

I have a size 10 foot. My feet are on the narrower side with high arches.

I wear 3mm booties and bought the size XL fins.

Re: Swim fins/flippers

They're definitely harder to put on than my original pair. I have to slide my foot all the way in before pulling up the heel strap. Hopefully they'll loosen up a little over time.

Re: Swim fins/flippers

I'm really liking the new Viper Vector V7 fins that I just got. They're a little stiffer than the older, more broken-in pair of yellow dot V7's that I've been using.

Re: Paipo volume and bouyancy

Flojo,

I live in San Mateo and generally surf between HMB and SF. I have a Xylem 48" Malama Kai and a HPD (as well as lots of surfmats). You're welcome to try either of my paipos so if you ever want to meet up and surf please let me know.

Re: Xylem Malama Kai paipo

Surfed my new Malama Kai for the first time today. The waves were 2-3' and somewhat soft but it held in nicely on the occasional steep face. Can't wait to ride it in some better surf.
