2007 Austin Surfboards 3-Fin Paipo, 50"

Board Builder/Shaper: Austin Surfboards/Austin Saunders
Year Built and Unit Number: 2007, #2385
Location:  Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA
Board Name: The personal name of the board, if any.
Background Notes: Paipo-90 was delivered July 1999 and is very similar to its predecessor, except it has a bit more volume to match its owner's increased volume (the rail is now a mature 5'10" and 190#). Rails range from a soft 50-50 type shape forward to rolled over in the aft section (I prefer the Paipo-80 rail shape).
