I wonder how this setup would work on a paipo, and in general, how single fins work on paipo boards

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

I had a krypt surf mat for 2 years, I loved it, the learning process was quite hard (that was the "side slipping" part I was referring to), but after a lot of sessions I was as confortable rinding the mat than my paipo or my bodyboard. Then the krypt mat was destroyed (my fault), I bought ...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Nice waves in the video ! Now I understand why you need some rocker. Big choppy and windy waves, probably not the ideal conditions for a flat plywood finless board indeed... A surfmat might be fun in these conditions, but if you don't like side slipping, forget it :lol: These waves remind me this vi...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

"I did try an HPD paipo..." Never an HPD but made same outline out of plywood once. Seemed to me that the board required huge body position shifts so that my hip was always almost right on top of one rail or the other and hand on airborne rail used to drive the weighted rail into the wave...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

I have not had time to try the last paipo of 18 width that I have made. but what measures do you recommend me to go without fins, if board of paulownia is 18mm thick = 0.7in? my measurements are 1.77m high and 75kg weight = 69.6in, high and 165lb es no he tenido tiempo de probar la última tabla de ...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

I do not like the paipos without fins, nor the bodyboard, I hate the lateral displacements and skids The side slipping you described might be due to the board being quite large. If you try a finless board that is narrower and longer you will see that the inside rail actually behaves like a fin as l...

Re: A couple of waves in Galicia, Spain

Just a single wave shot during the last weekend, in an estuary in France:

I like this place, waves are smaller, but when it gets a little bigger it produces dirty, choppy, yet fun waves, in brown water.
