Re: Thin build, flexible with strength.

Personally, the idea of a thinner wife excites me more. I am not sure that if the rails are kept thin, that having a thicker body might be more advantageous ( rolled bottom effect ) than just super thin and flat; which bring me right back to the wife effect! :oops:

Re: First Build

Hi Tom,

They will all work great. Each design may have subtle differences, but probably very subtle. Pick which one you like best; not really sure if there is an advantage to a tail design that is not square - watch out for points, they can hurt you. Super choice in wood.

Re: Asymmetrical vs Symmetrical swim fins

What do you guys think about asymmetrical vs asymmetrical swim fins? Personally, I like symmetrical swim fins. They don't torque my ankles. My boards do not have skegs and I have no problem holding into waves. If anything, many times I pull my feet out of the water to reduce drag to gain speed if I...

Airboy,

How does the rocker on the Paipo Nui compare with the HPD? ( Sorry if off topic!)

Re: WTB: Neumatic (Dale S.) Mat

Bob,

A year ago Dale emailed me that he had suffered another major heart attack. He was still in the hospital then. I do not know which one in Oregon, but I have not heard anything since.

Re: Building my first Paipo

The amount of maintenance required is negligible and that means a lot coming from me! I know nothing about working with wood nor do I have the patience.

Re: HPD Flex Paipos - Small

Thanks for the wonderful pics and ride report. I have been curious about a little flex in the HPD, but that was an insane amount! I came to paipos from mats that Dale made me. The feel of each is so different, but then it is between different mats as well as different paipos. Please keep us informed...
