Re: Basics.

IMO About the only thing riding a finless wood paipo has in common with riding a boogie or a finned body board is the prone position. I've been riding prone now for about 15 years. Back when I first started riding paipos exclusively full time, I'd say it took me at least six months to get to where I...

Re: Monolith 2001: XLPE

Interesting! How are you using XLPE as a mold for a paipo "Wood Press?" I have developed a technology for making blanks for channel bottom BBs/Paipos. XLPE should work well for building the blanks and prototypes. Just need to come up with a good adhesive that is strong enough to endure th...

Re: A Ripple in the Force

The stuff in the article is not mere conjecture.
Here is one of Tom's Air Injection boards.
You can see the bottom of the air vents in the shadow of the "louver".

Re: A Ripple in the Force

Of all the famous "surfers" I've known, Tom might be my favorite. Tom Morey was one of the nicest smartest coolest surfiest people ever. He will be remembered as the creator of the Boogie board but he was so much more. The man was a certified genius and I will miss him. FWIW "Boogies&...
