Re: Superman board design

So I wonder what kind of waves and / or boards require the superman stance ? I would guess that no waves actually "require" the Superman stance, which may be a reason this hasn't been more formally addressed as a "design issue". For me it's just something that is practically dre...

Re: Need Advice on Build

Person weight could also be the factor of width and length of wood board. 250lbs person should be riding a 46"- 48" (H) x 19" - 20" width(Nose), 24" - 30" width (tail) x 3/8" thickness. This is a up-side down guitar-pick style.

Re: Buffalo"s Contest

Yep had six heats with 6-7 people per heat. Must have been almost 40 people. New rules this year compared to 2017. In 2017, rules required Paipo class entrants to be over 50 years old and / or 250lbs. For 2018 they got rid of those rules thus the large amount of entries. Was in the Paipo class and ...

Aloha, I cut and shape boards that are 3/8" thick and of course easier to control and maneuvers than thick board.

Re: Small wave paipo

Hi, I'm wondering when it comes to a small wave board, what dimensions work better? Does it need to be longer like an alaia, or wider like a HPD style? I want to build another board for mushy onshore days Cheers Alaia is 48" inches and up. Hawaii Paipo Design has it's range on wide tail to the...
