Hi Im Dave

Relatively new to the fringe surfing scene coming from a longboarding background.
Ive been making handplanes recently and decided to make something a little larger.
At 33cm wide by 49cm long, would this class as a mini Paipo or is it something else?
If so, what? lol

Think it really comes down to the intended use, as a hand plane or a prone ridden paipo. No doubt it could be placed under the belly but intent is a huge part of the equation.
