Re: The Misfit

I am not competent to talk about the technical choices but I do love the "angular" look of this board

I checked out the Gus Acosta interview, the board looks like this one:

Re: versions of gus acosta?

The skegs seem to be quite forward on this one, it is close to a kneeboard shape.

Re: Plywood and cork

Another option would be to replace the cork sheet by this recycled rubber sheet:

Less natural for sure, less buoyant, but maybe more resistant ?

Re: Plywood and cork

Another annoying thing with regular plywood paipos is the fragility of the edge. Mine keeps to get dings on the edge, I always have to re apply some varnish to fix it. I hope the kork edge wil help with that.

Plywood and cork

I have a new project in mind. I would like to make a plywood board that would minimize the inherent plywood boards flaws. Which are, to me, the lack of buoyancy, and these dangerous hard edges. So, my plan is to make a sandwich: - the bottom layer will be a 1cm plywood sheet, the same one that I wou...

Re: A couple of waves in Galicia, Spain

When I first started riding the alaia style boards it took me about six months of regular use before I felt like I had it figured out. Completely different from other craft. I was thinking of making a new plywood board with that kind of dimensions (150cm x 40cm), my current is only 120cm long. How ...

Re: A couple of waves in Galicia, Spain

Could it be that the HPD needs to be ridden farther up than most paipo riders are used to? It could be that, sometimes I ride it farther up like "superman style", but when it gets too hollow I instinctively position myself backward, like regular bodyboard stance, so that I can use the lev...

Re: A couple of waves in Galicia, Spain

I rode my HPD board this afternoon. That board is definitly more complicated to turn than my plywood board, I have been using this board occasionally for 2 years and every time I am still struggling to make a turn and avoid side slipping. I feel like I need to lift the outside rail, like on a bodybo...
