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

Do you want to put bodyboard core material on the bottom of a fiberglass paipo? :?

The bottoms of bodyboard are HDPE plastic or surlyn (dupont)

NE england one day strike mission.

Well there was a chart so we went! 700 mile round trip from south wales to the NE of England for one surf! The good storms arnt frequent in the north sea but when they set up its possibly the UK's best wave. 1 5-hour epic 6/8ft surf. A take-off so hollow and steep that even the uk pros arnt taking i...

You need to have a hardcore buddy or be paying a guy to sit out back and do nothing but hold your sup in waves that good!

Re: Everybody wants to

To amend my post above, I think Morey's creation of the bb is one of the most brilliant ideas in surfing and have greatly enjoyed riding them. Materials is the problem. Once they die, and everything dies, what happens to it. Also, what resources are used to create it in the first place. We now have...

Re: quad fins 44.25 paipo

Today in waves that close with force I have had a very strong blow against the horned paipo, I've done enough damage, I'm fine. has made me rethink the design and make this paipo without fins, I'm thinking of a smooth design but with channels that allow me to run the paced without slipping Remember...

The boogie/bodyboard industry have their own wave storm, its the sub $50 bought by the inlanders one week a year beach holiday for the the kids. Here are 600 snapped one left on just a few southern E...

Re: Everybody wants to

They are the best selling board in the world! "the magic" of them is that the are the cheapest board you can buy coming straight out of china. They unfortunately fill the needs of the average cheap kook starting out in the sport. They are the plastic bag/single use water bottle of the surf industry....

Will be interesting to see how you find it with that nose bowl in weaker waves.

Re: Can't help myself

Lots of good design-related issues being brought up in this thread. Here’s my $0.02: Every good, i.e. “workable” design is an integration of all its functional elements, e.g. outline, bottom contours, rocker, fin placement, finless, etc. It’s very “Gestalt-ish”, where the whole is greater than the ...

Re: Everybody wants to

These actually are EPS, not PE like bodyboards. I didn't think about using deck material; I cut bottom skin. The deck material of this board is a bit beat anyway...board was well-abused. More photos later. I was saying the deck is PE. not the core The bottom skin is hdpe plastic i would not use tha...

Re: Everybody wants to

Never even seen or felt one in person so no idea of top skin texture? but I've cleaned some pretty nasty wax off boards just by leaving them deck up in the sun for an hour or so and then shaving w/ putty knife. Obvious I know. What's up with this beast? Toe in on fins will create wee bit of drag bu...

Re: Can't help myself

To be my usual broken record I ride finless, so when I hear "I didn't have a big enough fin" I feel that more than having a fin too small its more, your maybe not engaging the fin you have, from either it being on the wrong place on the board or you not positioned on the board to engage the fin. On...

Re: Can't help myself

If your talking about the hull I didn't keep it long enough to really get a feel for it. I got one wave at Steamer lane on it and I felt out of control going up and down the face which I thought was because I didn't have a big enough fin. I was running a Greenough 7" 4A was going to get a 8 or 9. T...

Its a good looking board, must fly with that wide tail.


Maybe if you give us a list of what it does not do well we could throw in some ideas of what we would do to that design to make it do those things better.

Re: Need Advice on Build

When performing a take off, ensuring your kicking in the water and not surface kick. You'll need the thrust to push forward, position your body positions left or right as you slide your board under you, you will quickly gain speed. Honestly, I'm 238lbs and I float on all of my wood boards. I've got ...

Re: Need Advice on Build

I'll put forward the view that a wood board can be put on the rail - Sean Ross at Pipeline is a prime example. Its more a question of wave rather than board volume. I think the issue is that wood boards are often ridden in mushy/junk waves. The recent video showed guys having fun in junk waves, but...
