Re: Are there any Commercial Paipos available on the market

To me, I have used 3 categories of prone vehicles: 1) bodyboard - sponge 2) bellyboard - foam & glass; buoyant 3) paipo - neutrally buoyant board that is not a sponge or mini surfboard Not quite sure what you are saying? Id like to have the term 'Paipo' cover a greater range of craft so that it cov...

Re: Are there any Commercial Paipos available on the market

Old "chook" also applies to an older woman, a younger one being a "chick". So 2 old chooks fluffing around would mean 2 mature ladies fiddling around with the potato salad, folding napkins and the like at a christening. "Fluffing", on this occaisson, does NOT refer to the adult movie actor preparati...

Re: Are there any Commercial Paipos available on the market

Why not draw the line here... Every prone board is classed as a bodyboard So UNglassed foam (soft foam-boogie) is a bodyboard but only a bodyboard. Everything else is a paipo. because the soft foam boards have a strict design shape that varies little - 60/40 rails , WP up front, flat outline across ...

Re: A difference between designing a paipo and other boards

we probably are saying the same thing. the whole board has to load up, not just having a tail that flops up and down. think of it more as as "twisting" a dish towel from nose to tail maybe? if the dish towel way may of a material that would spring back. it would load up and SPRING back into shape t...

Re: Are there any Commercial Paipos available on the market

I was meaning paipos that are built by a paipo company and not a surfboard factory that dabbles in other craft. I was just wondering if anyone had started a business just to build paipos? I'll check out the link, thanks for that ! Does the Belly Bogger pass as a paipo ? The Belly Bogger certainly q...

Re: Gluing Foam?

In Australia we have regular neighbourhood garbage pickups and I scrounge thru to find old gym / yoga mats. Theyre about $20- $25 to buy new but free if youre pride doesnt stop you digging thru trash. Ive glued them on with waterproof "Liquid Nails". The older mats erode quickly and they suck water,...

Re: Pirate Fish Alaia Remo II

Do you think its possible to laminate a few layers together to get a stiffer board for the same thickness or even thinner ?
Something like 10 or 12 layers of wood veneer with glass in between or maybe a foam core with the multiple veneer layers built up around the rails like on a Greenough spoon ?

Re: New T Belly Board

Did you have a lot of input into the design or did the Austin guys work it out ? The Larry Goddard drawings are inspirational.
