Re: Getting Churchill fins to fit

I got my foot into the left fin this morning. Gravity is working. I'll keep trying over the next few weeks.

Re: Getting Churchill fins to fit

Thanks Geoffrey. The other pair eventually stretched enough. I might keep trying each day.

Getting Churchill fins to fit

As a long time Churchill fin user, the current sizing is a source of frustration. I can't get my feet into the latest pair. Last year, I tried a few pairs of the same size, at the same shop. One pair I could get my feet into, another pair I couldn't. I'm considering soaking in warm water for a while...

Re: fringesurfer.tv

I think the wave quality can be interpreted in a few different ways. On one level Tom is saying you can have fun riding nearly anything on a BB. On another, I suspect there was a narrow filming window. The video with Warren Pfeiffer included quite a few waves of him riding in the whitewater. So it c...

Re: Non Skinny Paipo

Given the reasons for the nose design, does it add much thickness? You'd assume it does but the nose rocker would thin it out a bit. Has it been in the water yet?

Re: Travel Board

I have a two part paipo. I can send photos on the week-end. It has two carbon fibre rods through the centre and two screws, that lock the two halves togetehr.

Search Swaylocks- lots of guys have made bisectable boards there.

I'd forget the hinge idea.

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

If a tip sticks out 160mm and the distance between tips is 700mm that makes the board 380 mm wide (about 15"). Is that right?

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Chrispi, can you send a tail view looking toward the nose. Sounds like you are getting a bit of time in the water.

How far do the side bits extend out?

I couldn't find any US coins, but I did find some Canadian ones - if that is of any use: 6" from tail has a concave at the deepest of 1 x 2 dollar + 1 x 1 dollar + 3 x 25 cents + 1 x 1 x cent 1' from tail had a concave of 1 x 1 dollar + 2 x 25 cents 2' from tail has space for a 1 dollar at the rail ...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

No worries. The board that is really on edge is number 4 in a series. The green board is number 7. Number 4 had a flat bottom and foil more like the original design by Larry Goddard. The handle is a nod to handle aficionados (Robert Moynier and Jeff Quam, as well as early pioneer Wally Froiseth). It...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

The top photo gives you an idea of fins in relation to the wings. Photo 2 a better perspective on the concaves and wings.

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

The green board is the best I've ridden. I tried fins at Cloudbreak but was happier without fins. I think part of the problem with fins was the wings and where the fins were located. I'll take a photo. Two bottom turns, admittedly very different waves. I think the top photo is finless and it shows t...

Re: End of an Era

Nomas,

Is this just the bellyboards you are no longer making or any boards?

Either way, sorry to hear.

All the best
