Re: Fins

Some folks very much like the Force Fins--there are several different versions--your foot sits on the fin and an adjustable strap wraps over so wearing standard booties is not an issue (almost a requirement). Force Fin Pro fans are fanatic about them. I hear of some people breaking straps on the DaF...

Re: paipo choppy big waves, make it

I have often wondered if a deep "V" combined with rocker in the nose area, transitioning to deep convex and then to flat, would me a solution.

Re: Everybody wants to

Geez, I recognized that Leo Carrillo parking lot and have used that bathroom on the beachside. That was a very nasty fire. I can relate with you, Nels, on the how state of affairs can create an environmental cloud. Back long ago, think 9/11/2001 - 10/10/2002, several things touched me closely. The T...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

The really smart people would talk about characteristics of a fin's shape, height, base length and "rake." And where it is positioned on the board. A standard long board center fin is not conducive to easy quick turns/pivoting, so it can feel stiffer. But the fin is good for projection. Ev...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Single fins work, I rode a single fin paipo for a long time, during the late-1960s, 1970s, until maybe mid-1980s. On the other hand, the tail was somewhat narrower that what I evolved to with 3- or 5-fin setups. My single fins usually ranged from 8 to 6 inches, going smaller over time, and now I gen...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Apparently wind is more of a concern than a wave, and duck diving is not easy.

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Many different waves out there and many different people riding their paipo boards on them, whether it is a local wave break that a person may not venture far from or a faraway wave that is traveled to, and everything in-between. Young 15 year olds to older 75+ year olds, super fit and healthy and s...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Escribe en español and I will give it a try, "to get the rocker and that flex I have to cut the wood in contraction direction to the feed, if I do not give fiberglass part by just touching it", but I understood it as needing fiberglass to maintain the rocker.
