Re: It's prone but not a paipo

damn with that price tag i'll let you figure out the math on how many custom made paipo's you can have built by top shapers

Re: New Fin Technology

Got a very similar fin from Dale Velzy when he was still alive
and confirm that this style fin was originally a work design of Dale and Hap
Was wondering if a three fin version would not be too much drag when installed 8-)
