Re: HPD Flex Paipos - Small

I had the SR before switching to the smaller version. The flex is nothing as extreme as what's shown in the photos above.

Re: Buffalo's Big Board Surfing Contest

The board that Paul calls the HPD spoon was designed for a skeg. It has a fin box. I don't have a problem with any kind of paipo or belly board - fins or no. I do have a problem with juvenile language. Maybe you'd like to explain your post a little more clearly. And by the way, I'll put skegs, fin b...

Re: Humboldt surfer

But so cold, so cold. I got up to surf this morning and it was 30d. I couldn't face that long walk, I went back to bed. So ashamed.

Re: New EPS Prone Flyer

After 19 years of similar riding on my bodyboards I not have some tangential horizons through the paipo.

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. The "bend&...

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

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?

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!
