Re: paipo 50 inch drop knee?

If the board has fins you can even kneeboard it if big enough, although maybe the drop knee stance allows better control, I don't know People sometimes surf standup on regular bodyboards so I would imagine you could also kneeboard! https://youtu.be/121rDxTmxdw Standup or drop knee, you still have s...

Re: paipo 50 inch drop knee?

I have always wondered how a paipo would work as a drop knee board. Since I am not a drop kneeer myself (I tried several times on a bodyboard but I have failed so far), I would be curious to know the result of your tests. I guess the board fins will help.

Tubing on a paipo

Yesterday I had a fun session, small waves, low tide, but plenty of little peaks with hollow peeling waves, not too crowded. For the first time I was able to get some "micro tubes"...and most important I was able to exit properly a few times ! My son who saw me "tubing" while he ...

Re: Godspeed Paipo # 1

I agree that in terms of maneuverability, the floatty bodyboard for instance is far superior to plywood boards. I like to go fast down the line on small waves, so I am willing to sacrifice maneuverability to the benefit of pure speed (or at least the feeling of it), I think that's why I am happy wit...

Re: Godspeed Paipo # 1

There are some posts that mention volume as being important, but then say nothing more. In surfing it's like THE thing to discuss, and there are charts and calculators for Africa talking about volume. Volume is crucial in standup surfing, I agree, but in prone surfing it is different, mostly the pl...

Re: Need Advice on Build

It works for many people... on this forum atlantasurfer and uncle grumpy come to mind. Many others as well. Of course, that wave in the YouTube was also holding up a good distance as well! Indeed the wave is holding up a good distance :D Having a closer look on the video, it seems that the front ha...

Re: Need Advice on Build

I wish I had a wood board that would work as a prone "longboard" in small mushy waves, but I haven't found one yet.
Perhaps an alaia inspired board like this ?

Maybe one day I'll try a very long plywood board based on the same shape.

Re: French Paide fins

I bought this model of fins (Pride V1 flex) recently, oversized so it doesn't hurt to wear tick winter socks with it.
They are more confortable than my dafins. This is my first pair of asymetric fins, I like them a lot.
