Re: hanplane templates ? measures?

I don't have a lot of experience in the handplanes field, I tried it once only, I shaped one from a piece of pine plank and rode it. That was fun, but I got plenty of water projections in the face. It could probably have been avoided or at least limited by shaping the bottom differently. Having said...

Front fin(s) ?

On my long and narrow plywood paipo, when I turn, I feel like the pivot point is at the front of the board, the back of the board just reacts by "drifting". This is when I ride on a very forward position. It doesn't always turns this way (in a gently drifting move), sometimes it just side ...

Re: Riding position

And, a respectful question for those that employ the "superman' technique…why? I have a hard time envisioning, let alone experiencing benefit from that on paipos… obviously a standard and totally functional approach in body surfing as in your hand becomes a planing surface, but I'm stumped on ...

Do swim fins generate drag significantly ?

I was wondering, do swim fins generate drag significantly ? I thought about that the other day, as I was riding a very small, weak wave. I was wearing asymetric fins, Churchill like model, oversized to balance the tick winter socks (short rider but XL fins). As I was riding I could feel the flippers...

Re: Anybody has paipo videos to share ?

OG-AZN, I think these are ones of the first paipo videos I watched on youtube a few years ago.

Re: A couple of waves in Galicia, Spain

A foggy session this morning: https://youtu.be/C9sFLRV_wVE The fogg was crazy, I think it is due to the temperature that dropped down very quickly during the night. I was with my son, it was complicated at times to find each other after a wave. Also, it was hard to appreciate the size of incoming wa...
