Re: Paepo’o - my boards

I was curious about the white butterfly like shapes on the boards (like bow tie pasta, farfelle). On one board they look like stitches across a crack.
Is this there function or is it design? They look heavy or are thye lighter than they look. Either way, looks like you're having fun on them.

Re: Calf cramping

It really isn't a simple story. There is a large literature on this: https://journals.lww.com/acsm-csmr/fulltext/2008/07001/muscle_cramps_during_exercise_is_it_fatigue_or.9.aspx "And as empirical evidence grows, it is becoming increasingly clear that there are two distinct and dissimilar genera...

Re: Monolith 2001: XLPE

As they say, more testing required.

What do they look like finished?

Re: 3 Paipos at once?!!

Yeah it is a pretty rare occurrence for me as well, to surf with anyone else on a paipo. Then again I don't run across them generally.

Re: 12mm ply

No, but 1/2" should be ok. If not expensive, worth a go.

I'm heading down to Victoria for 10 days, east and west coasts.

Facebook page

Gday, I'd noticed a few bellyboard/paipo related posts in kneeboard and vintage surfboard collector sites, so thought why not a BB page (there are a couple of traditional UK BB pages). Rod had a Facebook page that was gathering dust, so I suggested an update and have posted some stuff there. If you'...

Re: Monolith 2001: XLPE

Is it going to have the channel like your earlier photos?

Re: Bob's Paipo

I had about 10 days surfing to test the board. It went way better than I thought it would: catches waves easily, handles a steep drop, holds an edge in the barrel and turns well. One thing I was less sure about was that it didn't seem to plane as well as my other boards. However, when I rode a wave ...

Thanks Harry.

The board looks like it is levitating in the bottom photo, ready to blast off.
