Re: yucca fins

Hi Nels, just saw your post-I think the fins are great. I got a pair of ultra soft flex size xl. I wear them with 2mm booties.the pocket is roomy and soft.

Yucca fin review

I bought a pair of Yucca fins and have used them twice now. I really like them. They are super comfortable on my battered caveman feet and have good power. The foot pocket is large and soft. Got them on sale for 40 bucks (yucca was having a holiday sale) Really glad I got them-would not hesitate to ...

viper yellow dots free to a good home Venura area

Hi I live in Ventura County and have a pair of yellow dot Viper fins that are too small for me. They have a lot of miles left on them. They are a size large and I will happily give them to someone that can use them. If you live in the area, get ahold of me and we can figure out a eay to get them to ...

Really cool shapes-I particularly like the one on the right in the group picture. How long/wide is it?

Re: Calf cramping

Looks like the booties were a major contributor to the calf cramping….went out today With thinner booties and fins with a wider pocket and had no discomfort. Thanks for the input.

Re: Calf cramping

Thanks Rod-I was thinking about my booties too-they are really thick and the front of my feet feel compressed when I put fins on them. I received some new, thinner booties yesterday and am going to try them out tomorrow.
I will let you know how it goes-thanks again

Hi Rod, not sure how to measure the viper fin blade, but it looks like it’s the 5 inch model.

Calf cramping

Lately, I have been annoyed by my left calf cramping up really badly, sometimes only 25-30 minutes into a surf session. I started stretching my calves before going out, take magnesium supplements, drink lots of water and the cramping continues. It’s a real pain in the calf. Been using stiff bladed v...

Re: 3 Paipos at once?!!

No, have never met in person, but thru this forum, you told me about the ocean beach group. I went up there one weekend but the surf was pretty bad so I opted out.
Saw some Paipos in the distance, but that as close as I got.

Re: 3 Paipos at once?!!

OG, you are right-I knew there was a group there but just never got around to it. I kinda regret that.
I am curious, do you still ride the cork paipo Dave was making, or are you back on plywood?

3 Paipos at once?!!

Last September, I relocated from the chilly waters of Pacifica, Ca to the much more comfortable waters of Ventura County. This summer, I have taken to prowling the beach breaks along the Rincon Parkway with my Paipo. Today, I paipo’d (is that a verb?), one of those beach breaks and lo and behold, tw...

Re: Basics.

Hey Aly-I like the lampshade for your nose template…I used a garbage can lid for the nose template on this board. I think I should wear a lampshade while paipo’riding. Fins on your feet make a big difference-not just for catching waves but for controlling the paipo once you are up on a plane. Ps:the...
