New summer Groveler

I have been using my standard paipo in good waves and my old faithful "the log" BZ retro bodyboard in small, flat or crowded waves. So I thought it was time to experiment and try to replace the summer bodyboard groveler with a paipo. Already having a CNC cut file for standard performance paipo I ask...

Re: T-Belly G6

But does more curve not equal more drag in the same way as more toe on a fin does?

Re: T-Belly G6

Good questions...The outline of TB needs to be considered relative to all of its other design features, which includes the use of fins. The outline shape of the finned TBs speaks to the difference between finned and finless prone-board shapes. The TB designs are driven by the use of fins for primar...

Re: T-Belly G6

If I have read it and the reason for the question, the design of nomastomas is very far below the measures recommended by Larry and this is precisely my curiosity I see in the designs very much like board rails contact with the water due to the narrowing of the nose http://mypaipoboards.org/intervi...

Re: T-Belly G6

I'm very curious about the narrowness of your boards, in what improvement compared to a more oval design? with nose wider? thank you very much, you are an inspiration for me have you seen the Goddard sketches? Asier. Good notes on them. http://mypaipoboards.org/interviews/LarryGoddard/Designs/thumb...

Re: T-Belly G6

How do you find the concave deck for positioning? I really like to have my hip and elbow way over on the engaged rail (but maybe that's a finless thing) although I see stand up surfers foot position also goes over towards the engaged rail.
Do you lie in the central position for both lefts and rights?

Re: Question about skegs

if you are willing to screw them on in 10 different places to find where they work best then it will be an interesting learning process. (dont forget toe angles too) I do think you are inherently fighting against an initial design that isnt the best for turning in the first place. My shorter wider p...

Re: Front fin(s) ?

On my long and narrow plywood paipo, when I turn, I feel like the pivot point is at the front of the board, the back of the board just reacts by "drifting". This is when I ride on a very forward position. It doesn't always turns this way (in a gently drifting move), sometimes it just side slips (so...

Re: fiberglass/polyester + Cores PE, NRG , PP?

Flex may add soft landing to a bodyboard when landing airs, but other than that I find the stiff fiberglass board better at everything else. faster and turns better.

Re: quad fins 44.25 paipo

It will be interesting to hear your experience. I rode this board a few times. Garrett2.jpg Garrett5.jpg It was fun on fuller, down the line waves, but it didn't hold an edge in a tube as well as my current board. The board is a lot thicker than it looks - about 3". That's an extreme one! :o I see ...
