Re: Introduce yourself

Not to be misinterpreted... this GoPro video was very pleasing. It is the general GoPro video out on the Internet that usually is not pleasing to me... gives me a headache or makes me seasick!

Re: Introduce yourself

I enjoyed the GoPro (?) video as well. Truthfully, most of them aren't that great but this one is nice and smooth. Water contrast nice as well. Welcome aboard the Paipo Forums!

How about a potluck? Saturday or Sunday night? I will do ribs or something like that if there is interest. It would be good to know preferred day and how many might be there.
Yup same old phone .
Pot luck sounds fine but I can't guarantee any luck.

P.S. Or, is that a Calif. herbal joke?

PhillyViking & Atlantasurfer have been making some boards...

Viking should post and share with you what he has been experimenting with regards to materials, processes, shapes, etc. Doing a nice job despite being a relative novice in the building process so I have a ton of respect for that. Vacuum, linens, resins. Likewise with AtlantaSurfer, although not as c...

Yup, but uncertain as to my surfing shape by October due to a recent wrist fracture. If nothing else, I will take some photos from the shore of all you guys scoring deep barrels, spinning and 360'ing and airing your way towards the shoreline.

Jeff Quam will be making it...watch out!
Oh boy! Thought that might shape up... my wife received a call from him in my absence, or left a msg, and thought it might be something like that. Is he camping out or staying at the Dr. Robert B&B up the road?

Re: New summer Groveler

I detect a noticeable difference in 5# vs 10# paipo boards. My 50-inch boards generally weigh 7 to 8 lbs due to generally heavier glass jobs.

Re: The Immigrint board

Wetsuits can be like swim fins, see how it fits on you. O'Neil wetsuits have consistently fit me (whether I was skinnier or plumper) but Rip Curls were just the opposite (constricting my range of motion). Try before buy.

Bodyboard Hydrofoil Video

Interesting footage. The foil seems huge to me ant unsuitable for the places I usually ride
(too many rocks, reefs).

Re: PAIPO by HYPR

The Hypr models, not to be confused with the Hypo models, are based on or off of Gus Acosta's board designs. Well, the fiberglass looking ones vice the wood looking ones. He was trying to, or did obtain, some patents for building and selling his design board, the Wave Arrow. There is some more here ...
