Re: Skinny Paipo

I made a 15" x 5'5" alaia style board a few years back. It's the one I use when the surf is small.

Re: fish the movie

Thanks Uncle G, looks like it was a great exhibition. Was this the one Richard Kelvin had something to do with? If not, do you know who put it together? Yes, this was the exhibit put together by Richard KENVIN. The catalog from this show (mentioned above) is excellent. https://mitpress.mit.edu/book...

I have some pictures from the Mingei exhibit.
Probably the best showing of Paipos ever.

If you aren't flexible in the shoulders or have had shoulder injury, a back zip is way easier.
