Super fun to meet up and talk story (lies).. and really great to see all the different board shapes , hear the design theories,and claims of performance aspects (more lies..ha ha!). Definitely look forward to the next one, and encourage anyone who can go..to go. Especially if it's held where there i...

Not sure yet..might try Refugio or just hang with you guys for a day, in any case will firm up as we get closer to date. Jeff will be bringing a quiver of interesting boards! And, I'll bring mine too..

P.s San Simeon has always had showers..on the other hand, pick a hotel and double up per room and that solves a ton of issues.Correct about people escaping summer heat..par for the course for that time of year.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Sa/Su/Mo, Oct 5-7, 2019 El Capitan SP

Morro Bay has a fantastic campground on the Back bay, and there is also Montana de or0, also fantastic. Not sure what Rod means by San Simeon being a mess..other than at capacity that time of year most likely. I live in Cambria...the MB through Big Sur sites offer the most opportunities for uncrowde...

Re: Paipo Gathering - Sa/Su/Mo, Oct 5-7, 2019 El Capitan SP

I'm in but I have to say..El Cap' that time of year offers limited surf opportunities. If it is happening you seriously won't be alone, and the immediate area is limited for the same reason.I would suggest Ventura (Mc Grath or Emma wood), Carpenteria, San Simeon, or Plaskett, all of which which offe...

Re: Paipo Gathering - Oct 8-10, 2017

SJB, thank you for the offer, but I'll probably be a day tripper depending on the surf...I'm up in Cambria and it's a fairly humane drive to and from...see you there.

Re: Paipo Gathering - Oct 8-10, 2017

Wow, I just saw all this stuff.

Sounds like El Cap is a done deal...I would also recommend Refugio for camping at that time as well.

Significantly iffy on surf in that area early October, but who knows?

I'll be there though, and look forward to the meet-up...rock on!

Re: As good as it gets.

That's the Creston Cowboy, Ed Walker. He was at the last Paipo-palooza in Cambria and is absurdly fun to surf with! Nice shots!

Re: New Fin Technology

At the risk of sounding like a broken record. and/or shouting in the wilderness…take a look at the original , 3 fin Bonzer…first developed in 1970 by the Campbell Bros, and their dad Jack Campbell.
You may see some design/conceptual similarities...

Cramps!

Prone people: any suggestions on reducing leg cramping during your surf sessions? i had to cut short 2 go outs in a row due to calf/thigh cramping (had been out around 2 hours each time)…not fun at all, especially as the waves were good! Interested in specific stretching techniques,hydration,foods…w...

Re: Paipoboards California

Ah, I see from an email from Bob that the seller says it's a 60's board…but for sure thats' Gordons label he put together after an abortive attempt with Hobie to develop a line of Hobie paipo's….and the beat goes on!

Re: Paipoboards California

Yo…that is Gordon Theisz's label…looks like an 80's experiment. After living in Cambria for many years, he meandered back to Sth Calif. in about 1985,(Laguna-Cardiff region) and made a few paipo's…Jeff Quam had one or two during this time.I made an effort about 5 years ago to contact him, but with n...

Looks like I'll be making a one day run at best…probably Monday but i'll ck in via cell via El Skiff-Meister. BTW…Refugio is a total paipo blast, i love to surf that thing …kind of a cross between Mandos,Secos, and San O. It's MELLOW mon!
