Re: Finless observations

Great to see you have fun at J-bay. Thinking about what you have said I think the big difference with finned and finless is finless its easier to move on the board and find the place where your in harmony with the rail so the board feels good. Finned is very complicated, you throw into the mix , fin...

Re: Soloshot 3 testing.

The result is great quality, but aren't you scarded that your camera would be stolen while you are in the water ? By the way, nice rides, I like the spins and the cut backs. Regarding the trademarks, there is a free software I use that doesn't put trademarks, it is called davinci resolve or somethi...

Re: Bodyboards discuss (the soft paipo)

Beautiful camera work to me. Must admit I"m not a fan of the GoPro POV stuff, esp in tiny surf where you can't really seem much of anything. This though, made me happy just watching Interesting wave I think at 4:24 where only contact points w/ board are hands and a very small area of his inside hip...

Re: paipo 50 inch drop knee?

I have always wondered how a paipo would work as a drop knee board. Since I am not a drop kneeer myself (I tried several times on a bodyboard but I have failed so far), I would be curious to know the result of your tests. I guess the board fins will help. With out fins my good bodyboarding friend c...

Re: paipo 50 inch drop knee?

You have done the same as me , my best body board is 41.5. I used this as template and now have 43"paipo. (more nose) Your tail rocker at 1" may be too much , bodyboards have 0 but can flex, I think i have 1/4" on mt paipo, your 1" will be slower but maybe better for control. You can snap, carve or ...

Re: paipo 50 inch drop knee?

In the bodyboard world most of the top DK riders just use a pretty standard 42" board, some of the legends use a 43" with the wide point set further back as the pivot point to turn it further back when on the knee than prone. My friend who is a good Dker tried my finless paipo and really struggled t...

Re: Finless T-Belly

Feel it on the legs where the board ends. Having spent the last almost 50 years of life in the racing industry, I, in my mind called it turbulence and attributed it to the fast moving water under the board, accelerated by the channels hitting a low pressure area behind the board creating a swirling...
