What now?

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.

We are in the san simeon "loop" but I don't think they give us a actual spot until we get there. Look for the white vw squareback and paipos laying around.

Re: Paipo Gathering in San Simeon Aug 3-5, 2012

I think the limit is two cars eight people per site so I am pretty sure we can fit a few more in reserved sites. Actually, Rod and I have one site booked, has anybody else actually reserved a spot?

I'm in a 4/3 year round because really what's the difference nowadays? Suits are way stretchier and more comfortable than the old days.

Ted is coming all the way from Hawaii? Wow! That's commitment.
Other than that I am hearing a lot of crickets. Not a lot of interest from the old guard.
Tired? Water too cold? Flipper stuck in the door?

Re: Paipo Gathering in Big Sur

There are sites available on that weekend. Plaskett is my fave, but we can't get a reservation. I vote 'switch'. Opinions?

Is this the creature you were looking for?

Jbw, We have has some pretty bad luck in the past for waves, third time is a charm maybe? Other mid coast suggestions would be appreciated, particularly if they are (a.) On the beach and (b.)Not horrendously windy. Doc., I think you may be the authority in the area, so please suggest away. The optio...

KSUSA seems to be gone. Replaced by adds and a pic of smooching couple. A warning for fringe surf group sites? Rod, don't forget to pay the electricity bill!

I favor the outfit of the paipo guy "no pants - no problem". I didn't even notice the second guy in the outrigger.

Re: Help...1/4 in. Marine ply, need a plan!

Hey Flowbee! Very glad to see another santacruzian on the board. I'm thinking Friday morning -four mile. Could be 6-8. Anyway I think you could laminate those two sheets with a good coat of carpenters glue, I think clamping the whole thing super flat, maybe with some 2 by's and park the car on top o...

Credit where credit is due (rant).

It seems like I come across a new paipo builder on the net once every month or two. A little blurb with pics. "Discover ancient form of surfing, personal connection with wave," interesting logo, etc. Rarely if ever do I see credit given about how they found this form of surfing. I don't think there ...
