Re: Need feedbacks on the HPD XL

Hello!

I have bought and surfed a XP model but only in small (2-3 ft) waves.

Very fast board but not easy to use.

I used a leash because I was surfing a reef and I was hit by the board on my head.

My impression: needs very large waves, DO NOT USE A LEASH, VERY DANGEROUS

Re: Italian paipo lover

Well, this is an alaia, shaped to surf the face of the wave, the brazilian one is more like a UK topical belly board, used to ride in the white water.
We used that kind of board also in Italy.

Hi Kru'

Sorry for my VERY late answer, I didn't read your post (???!!!),
I will ask to the shaper all the informations you wanna know and write them down asap.
I am happy you like the bag. It is a personal idea and a very cheap solution (10 euro!!!)

Ciao from Italy!

Italian paipo lover

Hello everybody!
This is Paolo, from Rome, Italy.
I suppose to be the only one to ride a paipo in Mediterranean Sea,
so I feel a little bit alone. :D
I would just have a warm hug from your big paipo family...p
