Re: River Surfing Paipos & Bellyboards

Well made and cool looking boards. That bench is just what you need to make these boards. Whether in the surf or river, these boards need some push, because of their low volume. A simple piece of wood can be a lot of fun, though harder work if there is a current or a long paddle.

Re: Strip plank build

I asked Global Ernie, he suggested: "I think the simplest approach is to buy one 8x4 sheet of 3mm marine ply. Cut into four pieces 4 x 2 and then use the glue up process to form whatever rocker/nose/tail lift you desire, the glue will hold the curve permanently. Draw on your plan shape and cut ...

Re: Dorsal Swim Fins

I read some reviews, complaints about weight and small sizing.

How does the overall length compare to a Churchill and Duckfeet?
