Re: Can you kneeride a plywood paipo ?

Someone posted this Proto-Kneelos video a while back. This thing is a gem and a good source for paipo/Kneelo crossover history in California.

Re: Frankenboogie Mk. III

IMG_0212.JPG IMG_0212.JPG Here is a couple of pics for comparison. The smaller one is 22" x 56," and the bigger one is 22" x 62." When I weighted them I was surprised to learn that they both weigh about 12.5 lbs each. But then I weighted my 6 foot ply paipo, and it was right there in the same range...

Frankenboogie Mk. III

IMG_0207.JPG Here is my latest project. The idea was to use the same kind of fin arrangement and foam (EVA, sometimes called minicell) as the Frankenboogie Mk. II, but use the original Frankenboogie shape. Version one had 2" foam and version 2 had 1" foam, so this time I split the difference at 1.5...

Here is the F-Boogie finned up and waiting for a trip to the ocean. As you can see, a pretty slight toe-in.

Re: Frankenboogie Mk. II

I just got home from the beach, and I have to say that my new Frankenboogie and I are now very deeply in love. I ran it as a 1+2, with a 4.7" center fin and two 2" sidebites. It duck dives easily and has what seems to have about as much flotation as my 50" foam and fiberglass paipo. It doesn't catch...

I love the Waylo material. Is he still around, still making paipos?

Re: pdf template

For my last two boards I used the mini Simmons outline on Blending Curves. Once I had it drawn out, it was pretty easy to lop a few inches off the bottom of the template and rework it. Likewise, it would be easy to make these designs wider or more narrow, as needed.

Re: Frankenboogie Mk. II

That piece of pine is there to hold the FCS fin plugs (sockets ?). The plywood is less than 1/2 inch thick, so I was concerned that they would rip out otherwise.

Re: Frankenboogie Mk. II

I had not really considered the heat aspect...especially if it goes somewhere tropical. I guess I'll be building character. I wish I could get it to the water sooner, but my next beach trip is in five weeks. Atlanta has jobs, cheap housing, and a great music scene, but it is missing something import...

Re: Frankenboogie Mk. II

The first version was 62" x 23". This one is 55" x 22". Instead of 2" polyethylene foam, I used 1" EVA (mini cell). The old one is damn hard to duck dive, and the foam soaks up water like a sponge, making for a heavy, heavy piece of gear. Hopefully, this second version can function in bigger waves a...

Re: Tom Morey Interview in SurferToday.com

IMG_0152.JPG The Frankenboogie V.2 is not exactly what Morey had in mind, but we are in sort of the same ballpark. I'll post more when the build progresses, but so far I have a 3/8 plywood bottom 56 x 22". In a few weeks i'm gonna have a pro put the FCS boxes in. The plan is to cover it with 1" Min...

Re: Los Angeles Spots

Good stuff! Thanks for all the helpful info. As it stands now, my wife's cousin who lives in Garden Grove is going to pick me up and give my a tour of some north Orange County spots. He's a good surfer, and he's an aging punk rocker/drunk mocker like me. The only down side is that he didn't seem too...

Los Angeles Spots

In a couple of weeks my wife is taking a business trip to Glendora, CA, which is approximately twenty miles west of L.A. I'm tagging along for the weekend, and along the way I'll have the rental car for a day while she works. I have never surfed in the Los Angeles area, but the word around the campf...

Re: Fin Advice

Hey What's up Philly! Yes, I am taking this beast with me to CR. As you probably remember, I usually make about one wave out of the ten I try for when I'm surfing down there. The idea of the Frankenboogie was to get more board under me and maybe catch a few more. Of course, this all remains to be se...

I'm packing for this punk fest in Vegas. Flying on friday https://www.punkrockbowling.com Last weekend i was using a medium (4.5") FCS as a center fin with the Turbo Tunnel side bites. It worked fine with the small waves, but I was definitely outgunned once it hit chest high and choppy. I had the fi...
