Re: THE PHAETON F-44 BARRELHAWK

"Channel Islands-Inspired twinnies." so which CI has a massive center fin on their twin! the 3 fin twin! lol

i'm always so intrigued to see these surfed wondering if they have made something super complicated that they just got straight down the line on.

Re: TBG7

it's interesting to compare to mine. I cant see the number but yours appear to have more nose rocker than mine if you cut your nose down to my 2 3/4" nose rocker how much length of the tip of the board would you lose?

Re: French paipo

I can email you the CAD file of my board if you would like the shaper to have a look for ideas or have a look yourself, you just need the free version of akushaper to see it. you could see what I use for nose rocker etc. That would be great, thanks :) benoit.mori.merceron@ gmail .com email sent. :D

Re: French paipo

If you have a bodyboard that you like I would recommend using its outline curve as a template, that's what I did with my paipo and it turns just the same as my fav bodyboard. if the shaper put a sufboard rail on it with a hard edge then that will work with fins, if you then want to try it finless yo...

Re: Lockdown special The Bat Lid

I would love to try out one of your boards, but think as with many things Brexshit has ruined any chance of that.

Re: French paipo

The worst thing I have found from most standup shapers having a go at a paipo is they put everything they know about standup boards into them and all those general rules don't work, so you end up with their first go/experiment and end up with a test board that's all wrong. For example, he is already...

Re: fin placement on bodyboard?!

ok-I know this will rile up the purists here, but as an experiment, I put a couple of soft top fins on an old bodyboard-It is a too big, too wide bodyboard that I could not keep from sliding out whenever the wave got steep. the fins made the board a lot more fun to ride but I think I could improve ...

Re: Re-shape

I already wear a lacrosse rib protectors at this one place I surf! That must be some extreme skipping or you must surf a lot more on your belly/ribs than I do, I have never experienced anything that extreme that would need chest protection in all my time surfing. Are you leaving the water surface o...

Re: Re-shape

I've often thought of how to handle high-speed waves with some cross chop. Skimming from peak to peak of a little bit of cross-swell is challenging. Up to moderate sea state (chop style), but not high seas, hydrofoils and bi-/tri-hulls are sometimes used. Boats have bows (v-bottom fronts/nose areas...

it would be helpful to see pictures of the board from several different angles and know the dimensions. and rider height weight I have never experienced this bucking, hopping or chattering on any boards i have ridden unless in extreme devil wind, and in those conditions, no design would get rid of i...

nice looking board, but what a horrible place for a leash, i guess it was iriginallt leashless and when someone wanted to use one there only idea was to drill the fin!

Re: Does it sound like a good paipo ?

That's about the same dimensions as my boards. I ride 21.5 wide which is a very standard width for a 42" bodyboard for the last 30 years. Should work finless too.
I wish i could sell my used boards for 300E, nobody seems interested if I advertize them at half that :(

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Just reviewed your chambered board. Very cool. How does it ride compared to your SDF boards? I got the shape of it wrong, to much belly in the nose, so it needed a powerful wave to be planing on the back, if the wave went soft and i needing to move forward to speed up then the belly pushed to much ...
