Re: My new SDF surfboard Paipo

what happens when forcing the nose down on a bodyboard catching a wave, whether i'm keeping the board flat, forcing reverse rocker, but some how the paipo's boyancey and stiffness bounces back at me I think you need to back your weight off the board a bit and push the board forward. The "bend" that...

My new SDF surfboard Paipo

Well here are the first photos of my new paipo, it's glassed and hot coated but not sanded yet.

Larry Goddard (named it the rincon rocket)

Tom Wegener's Seaglass tuna which I borrowed chine rail and concave from for finless use.

Re: Duckfeet/DaFin comparison (land-based early impressions)

In my opinion Duck feet are the worst fins i have ever owned! duck feet are horribly long, (i did cut a fair few inches off them and get some use out of them) I much prefer the more "standard" bobyboard company fins I would choose, mike stewart vipers/toobs blunt cuts/churchills (the list goes on!) ...
