Re: TBG5

Thanks. I didn't Malcolm had made a lot of BBs. I know 3 suspects who ride them, but obviously not your customer.

Anyone from near San Francisco (not Santa Monica)on the forum?

In my quest to find a Go-Pro set-up that is not a helmet or a board fixture that would lobotomise me. Jarrett Liu has been experimenting with shoulder straps. I came across these: https://stuntmancameramounts.com/ I've e-mailed the company about suitability in the surf and salt water. A personalized...

Re: TBG5

Gday Nomas,

Would the customer be someone I've done a paipo interview with? No need to name names., but that would narrow the field.

Re: Rick Surfboards Paipo

Sounds like some questions might be in order. Someone must have surfed it in recent memory, or that leash has been there a long time.

Re: Does it sound like a good paipo ?

Width is a matter of taste - Jeff's boards are way wider: https://mypaipoboards.org/interviews/Je ... 0602.shtml

If it is not too expensive, why not?

Width always operates in harmony with other parameters.

Re: Nose thickness

I don't have a "too vertically" I can take off straight on a wave to the point of air dropping and not have a problem nose-diving. By straight, do you mean straight facing to shore? I much prefer to be on the board when I kick into a wave than behind the board and pulling up onto the boar...

Re: Nose thickness

I don't experience any problems with pearling the nose ever, which is why I am an advocate of the shorter board. If you go too vertical on a take-off, what happens? I dusted off the HPD yesterday. I'm not a fan of having to push forward onto the board,at take-off. If you rode one all the time, I gu...

Re: Nose thickness

Nomas,

Most decks are standard flat/rolled, the bottom has concaves. The pale blue boards, has a scooped out deck - the initial thinking was a flextail/spoon.

Re: Nose thickness

Finless? The two white book-ends, the bonzer and the handled Quam, have only been ridden with fins. Of the remaining boards,you'll see only the orange board with a set of fins (small rounded keels). This board has fins because it draws a really long line and requires effort to do a cutback. The boar...

Foil.png
The first board in this series was 2 1/2 - 2 11/16 - 1 3/4; the board previous to this one was 1 3/4 - 1 3/4 - 1, so changes recently are more subtle and in the distribution.

Nose thickness

My favourite board is the dark green one. It has a foil more like a surfboard foil, with more volume in the nose area. The yellow board is the oldest and most similar to Larry's original design. It was # 2 in the series and thinner than the original. Excluding the red and the white boards, all the o...

Re: TBG5

The style of board I mostly ride was based on one of Larry Goddard's shapes, as were some of Nomas' early BBs. Larry favoured a thin nose, because he said the nose didn't do anything. I found these boards, nose-dived at speed, something Larry also found, at times. My current boards have more thickne...

Re: Handsfree selfie stick

Chrispi,

Any thoughts on a GoPro mount set-up that would work on a BB - shooting forward?

Helmet mounts seem most successful. The standard deckmount seems to low and you get water coming off the rails. A wrist fitting has similar problems.
