Re: Need Advice on Build

You should really be fine on a 42.5 (wide point forward bodyboard) I'm your height and weight and surf in the same 1ft mush on one fine here in the wales. If you are sliding out your staying to central to the board and not getting over on the rail/back corner. Also check you board has not bent in th...

Re: TP Displacement Hull Board

"Plowing" is almost always a nose rocker problem. Entry rocker has to be smooth, continuous (parabolic) curve, with no abrupt changes. Smooth transitions can be can be hard to achieve in a shape with such short length. "Belly" or convex rail-to-rail curve doesn't cause plowing. yeah I just did it f...

Re: TP Displacement Hull Board

That is beautiful! In my stand-up experience, many hulls are built too "deep" and tend to bog unless there's tons of power in the wave. Yours appears to be subtle enough to just do the job which is perfect I think. In all shapes, but maybe even more so when dealing w/ convex bottom contours, a litt...

Re: TP Displacement Hull Board

I have belly/displacement in the front 1/3 of my boards. I find it nice to paddle into waves on as it work front 0mph, where as a planing hull your basically dragging through the water till 4/5mph when it starts to plane. I however prefer most of the board to be a planing hull as i don't like the wa...

Re: Finless observations

Great to see you have fun at J-bay. Thinking about what you have said I think the big difference with finned and finless is finless its easier to move on the board and find the place where your in harmony with the rail so the board feels good. Finned is very complicated, you throw into the mix , fin...

Re: Soloshot 3 testing.

The result is great quality, but aren't you scarded that your camera would be stolen while you are in the water ? By the way, nice rides, I like the spins and the cut backs. Regarding the trademarks, there is a free software I use that doesn't put trademarks, it is called davinci resolve or somethi...

Re: Bodyboards discuss (the soft paipo)

Beautiful camera work to me. Must admit I"m not a fan of the GoPro POV stuff, esp in tiny surf where you can't really seem much of anything. This though, made me happy just watching Interesting wave I think at 4:24 where only contact points w/ board are hands and a very small area of his inside hip...

Re: paipo 50 inch drop knee?

I have always wondered how a paipo would work as a drop knee board. Since I am not a drop kneeer myself (I tried several times on a bodyboard but I have failed so far), I would be curious to know the result of your tests. I guess the board fins will help. With out fins my good bodyboarding friend c...
