Re: Which paipo for hollow waves ?

Bob, I surf at Lacanau, which is a little more of the North than Biaritz (2h drive). The main difference is that near Biarritz (pays basque) you will find different kind of spots, some exposed to the direct swell and some others protected from the swell by some structure (dam, harbor...). Near Lacan...

Re: Which paipo for hollow waves ?

Maybe to learn more about this style of board it might be worth considering starting with some less challenging conditions. But then again, some like the deep end as a place to start. I agree, it would be much better to start with less challenging conditions, the problem I have is that where I live...

Re: Which paipo for hollow waves ?

Hi there ! I finished to shave and seal the board, I also took your advices in account and built a new board (the right one on the picture bellow) with a simple shape, finless, sharp rails. Yet it is still made of pine wood, so no rocker and no flex. The yellow stripe is to make the board more visib...

Re: Which paipo for hollow waves ?

I was looking the pictures of Sean Ross at the pipe line, he seems to lead the board position in various ways, independently from his body's position. He is not just laying on the board, he is driving it using his arms. Seems to be an art, and I understand now the connection between paipo riding and...

Re: Surf Snowdonia artificial wave

What I like with artificial waves is that it will make the ocean less crowded.
People who are interested into performing tricks may pay to ride those perfect waves while the others who like to be in the nature will gain more room.

Re: Which paipo for hollow waves ?

Hello, thanks for your replies. So, the rail of the board has to "bite" the wall to get grip on it ? I'll need to practice that, not sure this is something I would instinctively do. My paipo that I mentioned as too big was 40,9 X 19,6 inch. Reading the link you provided, that doesn't seem too big. I...
