Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

Sick one Krusher74! I'm surprised you can still surf those spots during that much tide swing. In my area, the average tide range is probably only 3-6 ft, but there are some spots that get really tough to paddle back out at when the tide comes flooding in. There are a lot more spots where it's a con...

Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

Krusher, If this is the ordinary sort of waves you get maybe my wife's idea of going to London one day isn't such a bad idea. I surfeld in Ireland a year or so ago at this beachbreak and the tidal range and effect on where there were waves was pretty amazing let alone bewildering. On the second sur...

Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

Krusher, 10 out of 10 for ingenuity. The wave looked perfect fora paipo. The board certainly looked like it could hold an edge through the hollow sections/whitewater. Was this some sort of reef? I was interested in the variety of wave heights. I'd be interested to see the stills, especially if they...

Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

That's a fun looking set up you have over there. You had it mostly to yourself too. What's the water temp there? We have huge tides here, was 36ft that day (30 to 43ft range over the year) the draining out tides kill off the swell so it can be quiet at a lot of our breaks on the dropping tides. I w...

Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

Well I managed to get some video today, I just used my camera (don't have a camcorder) its shoots in 720pHD, but the only thing is they only let you shoot 29.59 minutes any longer and they have to call it a camcorder,lol Anyway with no tripod and the camera stuck on a rock I just got out there and t...

Re: New EPS Prone Flyer

After 19 years of similar riding on my bodyboards I now have some tangential horizons through the paipo. What now? That was supposed to read " I now have" (edited it) So was your question what now directed at what board next or what riding goals next? Have you got in the tube on your board yet, how...

Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

Got in on the board again at a different break i had not surfed on it yet, 3ft and clean Aframe beach break. The more I surf this board the more I like it, it drove through some barrels today I don't think I would have got out of on my bodyboard, finding it super easy to catch waves on now. It's qui...

Re: Central coast Paipo rider (and so-cal)

Kage, thats how its done. All you other "surfers" on this site and others take note, dont go on about this spot or that spot, blabbing its name and location all over the internets and dont tell me "get with it old man, there aint no secret spots no more," i get that, but why remind folks that there...

Re: Central coast Paipo rider (and so-cal)

I am in Santa Barbara (South Central Coast.....or North Southern California.....let the debate begin). :roll: Rincon is a great wave but worse than the 101 during rush hour. Spudnut and I have a few less crowded favorites between Ventura and SB we might share with someone PASSING through. :lol: Tha...

Re: New EPS Prone Flyer

That's all very interesting to read. I've found with boards there are two ways to go. 1: I want aboard that lets me surf how I want to surf 2: I will surf the board I get how it best wants to be surfed. I know if i surfed a board of the huge volume of yours I would have to surf it the way it wanted ...

Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

I converted over to fiberglass paipo boards from bodyboards about a year ago. (Although I had a couple fiberglass paipo boards in the 70s.) I took me about 8 months to really master the paipo. My board is bigger than yours and has twin fins. I am about 6 feet 205 lbs. My board is 51 inches by 22 in...
