Pickle juice really works. Take a swig if you feel a cramp coming on (much easier while playing pickleball than surfing.)
So...Ted, do you have a surf trip in the year coming?

Re: contacting Hawaii Paipo Designs

Beginning to wonder. He played in a benefit concert back in late-May but hasn't been on Facebook lately, his page and the HPD page.

Thought I had his phone number but lost it along the way. We had a couple of conversations over the years but it has been awhile no.

Re: Adding Cork Deck

Kim, close to a standard ply paipo, not too different than this one in general concept. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/163632989_104705535045202_7811426352553044804_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&ccb=1-7&_nc_sid=8bfeb9&_nc_ohc=WfOCq3LGjUcAX9hg56q&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh...

Hansen Statoglas

Can't say I have heard of this Hansen paipo model before. Apparently Hansen built some Stratoglas shortboards as well. Anyone out there familiar with these models?

Re: would this class as mini Paipo?

Think it really comes down to the intended use, as a hand plane or a prone ridden paipo. No doubt it could be placed under the belly but intent is a huge part of the equation.

Re: Calf cramping

Fins are very personal because of the shape of our feet. For example:

Re: Calf cramping

From the juncture of the foot pocket to the blade (which will be below the drain circle on the bottom side). The 7" Yellow Dots look like "long fins" and the 5" a more normal length, in general. In addition to dehydration causes, I usually experience cramps when my fins are on re...

Re: Paepo’o - my boards

Nice looking boards. They appear to be along more traditional lines (plan shapes). How long and wide are the boards and are they flat=, concave- or convex-bottomed?

Re: Calf cramping

Hydrate well in the 24 hrs before going out. The Vipers Orange Dot are good (at least the old formulation was good, the black and orange), I used them regularly before moving to DaFin. Are you using the 7" or 5" Viper Yellow Dot?

Re: A Ripple in the Force

I was graced with meeting Tom Morey outside the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian. We had a good chat with the help of his wife. Morey was also engaged with innovating removable skegs (board fins).

Re: TBG7

I am all tapped out for additional travel in 2021, but definitely consider another paipo gathering. Please start a new thread for that discussion.
