Re: My First Paipo

I'm a big fan of Minwax fast-drying polyurethane. It's oil based, but fast enough for 2 coats per day...depending on your weather. It's clear. It's interior, but I never leave my paipo tied up to a dock in a marina. I glue the cork to bare plywood with Titebond II at the very beginning of a project,...

Re: Selling boards

Sort of a board swap possible at the paipo gathering on October 8th and 9th at El Cap. Maybe bring one or two boards to sell, but just put a piece of blue masking tape that says, "make offer" on the bottom of the nose. Sort of a conversation starter for the campground lookyloos.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Oct 8-10, 2017

Anyone interested in getting together again in the Ventura to Cambria stretch of the coast in early October? Thinking about 2-3 days between Friday, Oct 6 and Tue, Oct 10th. About 2 years earlier (Oct 2015) we met up at the Ocean Mesa El Capitan campground (just up the road from Santa Barbara, nort...

Re: Pete Howorth & Petersen's Yearbooks etc

One of them is seven years back in the old forum. A short one pager from a magazine, not a yearbook. Is that the one you're looking for? It has a picture of young Rodney Sumpter at Salt Creek, and now I have to wonder if he ever did his tidal bore surfing on a bellyboard. http://rodndtube.com/paipo/...

Re: which resin for plywood ?

I agree with Mike, but it's probably worth mentioning that he was talking about polyurethane when he abbreviated it as poly. He's talking about an oil based varnish that is very clear and dries quickly. If you change the shape of your board, or make a repair, then matching the finish is easy. It's a...

Re: Another blast from the past..

In the Snake's History of short surfboards at Huntington, he talks about how the Blackball led to an increase in kneeboarders. And that led to short boards for stand up riders. Interesting stuff: http://surflibrary.org/evolution.html It would be nice if a qualified person could write the bellyboard ...

Re: Another last from the past..

That looks like one of the small ones. I had one that was three feet or less. Definitely meant to be a bellyboard, or maybe the 3 foot leftover from a nine foot blank. I seem to recall they came from the Frog House, but I can't remember who told me that. Rasta Colors??
