Re: "Turbo speedstik paipo" vintage bodyboard

Well, I bought the other one :shock: cost me more to have it mailed to me that I paid for it :?

If I had seen the pictures of yours first I probably would not have bothered. :lol:

Might just be a wall hanger for me. 8-)

Re: "Turbo speedstik paipo" vintage bodyboard

I got this reply about it from the vintage bodyboard guy "It was meant to be a mix between a skimboard and a paipo. On the bottom. there are a few little channel grooves. They were touted as pretty much indestructible, although that wasn't completely the case. Ken Brown, the brother of Russ Brown (a...

Re: "Turbo speedstik paipo" vintage bodyboard

WOW! where did you find that!!! :shock: Can't wait to see some more pics of it to see the rail etc. It's very similar in template design to what I ride. I think you will find it a whole different beast to what you are used to, maybe slightly slower, but the buoyancy will help you catch waves easier ...

Re: New summer Groveler

so this arrived in the post today from good old china, I had been searching around on the interwebs for EVA foam pads to stick to my newest paipo and found this "teak" boat decking. I don't like to much texture grip as I like to slide front to back on the board for accelerating, stalling and doing 3...

Re: Do swim fins generate drag significantly ?

I once wore a GoPro facing backward on my back to film into the wave behind me, one interesting part of the footage I caught was my fins, they were skipping across the water barely touching and my legs looked like jelly. So as anything would touching the water they will create some drag, but it thin...

Re: TBG5

Knees do act like natural shock absorbers. My body/belly can't do what my knees and legs can do in a standing position. one reason I'm such a proponent of boards shorter than most people seem to ride it that I like to ride with about a 90 degree angle on my rail arm elbow while holding the nose. Th...

Re: TBG5

I don't believe that rocker has anything directly to do with lift. If anything, rocker slows a board down when going in a straight line. Your shapes tend to be smaller (less planing area) than mine. You may have come upon a combination of volume and planing area for your weight that, while fast, do...

Re: TBG5

Tomas: was just trying to compare rocker to my own designs seeing mine have about 1/4" yours at 1" would be a lot to me, I wonder how much tail rocker a bodyboard bends to from its static 0. I can't say I have really noticed the chop/skipping think at all, either my boards don't do it, I dampen it w...

It's hard to tell from the pictures but with those tail concaves does the G5 have a lot of tail rocker?

Re: New summer Groveler

I managed to get in the shaping room today to finish off the new board :D The two changes I have made from my standard board are instead of a full swallow I have gone to a clipped swallow? :? my thinking is in stand up surfboard terms the one side of a swallow tail is like a pintail, and this tail I...

Re: T-Belly G6

according to those bodyboard measurements, I do not understand why the paipos are made as big, 49 and 52 as you comment in the first post? What is the overdose that is compared to 42 of the bodyboard? my paipos are 43/44 x 18.5... 20 max inch and I measure 1.75cm weight 75kg My own paipos are 43", ...

Re: T-Belly G6

“I find it is the opposite of surfboards. So, the bigger and heavier the wave the smaller the board you can ride. Since those waves give so much more speed you just increase your control by using a smaller board which is super helpful when making crucial late drops or bottom turns on slabby waves. ...

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?
