Re: First Build

Hi,
just wanted to share some pictures. Have been to the North Sea last week but had some bad weather - only sun, no wind, no waves. I´ve never seen the sea that quiet. Maybe I should take that personally :)
But the weather was nice for some pictures :)
Cheers, Tom

Re: First Build

Hi, I guess it´s time for an update. I had some problems getting 60cm wide Paulownia so I started with the 40cm board left. Shaping took me less than an hour, it´s really easy to work with that soft wood. I left the board nearly flat, just some very slight rocker on the first 15cm. Yesterday I finis...

Re: Hess Peanut Shark paipo

Hi,
I liked that one too. But being 6 feet tall it seems a little short. I did a scale-up to 43.5" here: http://mypaipoboards.org/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=415
its the second from left... Than played around with the nose (3rd from left).

Re: First Build

All about, I will be in Augsburg next September for a few days. No surfing planned but thought is might be worth a wandering by to check out -- I can only visit so many churches and cathedrals before needing a cold one or other distraction ;) Checked out the Isar in Munich during a visit many years...

Re: First Build

That´s amazing. Next month I will be in Holland exactly where Eef lives - in Alkmaar.
I guess I have to start the first board next week :)
Eef is the first boarder I´ve seen wearing a PFD.

Re: First Build

Hey guys, thaks for your replies and your ideas. I wasn't thinking of short boards for swell, but i understand your point. Good idea, so I will ad a shortie, too.

Re: First Build

Thanks for your advice, then I'll go with no. 2 or 3. 4 seems a little to wide. Looks like I will be in Brittany in summer, may be there will be larger waves. So I'll stick to that bat tail, like that design pretty much. I'll post some pictures, when the board is finished... :) Any additional tips o...
