Re: What are you riding at the moment?

I do ride it prone. I wouldn't say it is faster than other boards, but I think the extra volume makes catching waves easier. The spot is usually small and weak and packed with SUPs and long boarders. I can't sit as far out as them, but i do want to get the wave as early as possible. When paddling f...

Re: What are you riding at the moment?

I just got back from surfing Florida using a board I call "The Truck." It is a 5'4'' mini-Simmons with twin keels. Here is a look at what I was surfing Saturday. Some Of the cleanest, longest waves I've ever had in Florida. The photographer didn't take any pics of me, but I was right ther...

Re: Plywood paipo with a bodyboard shape

Nels Then maybe you should ;) Another interresting shape I have tried is the english belly board, narrow and long, it has kind of a bodysurf feeling because the board is narrower than you, yet its lenght allows long g...

Re: What are you riding at the moment?

I use my plywood boards most of the time, occasionnaly a 42" bodyboard (when it is a little too big for me with the paipo), and sometimes a stand up board (when it is just too small to ride prone). Also I just bought this foam board : http://adventura-demo.detheme.com/surfing/wp-content/uploads...

Generating speed using skegs ?

In small waves, I noticed that shortboarders massively used their skegs to generate speed, doing these kind of "S" turns.
Is it possible to use a similar technic on prone boards, or are the skegs usefull only to add drive ?

Re: Plywood paipo with a bodyboard shape

Hi there, I built another plywood board, still the same bodyboard template, but a this time a little longer (47"). And I rounded the nose corners. I applied yellow paint and varnish, I am actually quite happy with the way it looks: paipo.jpg I had a quick test ride Today. Due to my "no roc...

Re: Plywood paipo with a bodyboard shape

Another video of the same board: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsMpssHrLwA I wanted this board to be a good fit for small days, but as someone said in the youtube comments, when the wave slows down the nose generates a lot of front spray, pushing too much water, no good I guess. So, I 'd say the b...
