Re: paipo choppy big waves, make it

I would still lean towards a deep "V" nose hull, similar to a boat. As a matter of fact I would rely a lot on boat design. You still might skip a bit but nothing like a flat bottom or concave moving through or over cross chop.

Re: Do swim fins generate drag significantly ?

Fins (and legs) in the water while riding can affect the entire drag range from none to complete stop. Often times you will need one's knees bent to keep the leg and fin out of the water which means you are planning on the board. Most fins & legs on an even plane behind you on a wave will create...
