Yes, A wicked thin 6' Paulownia alaia. I went like 3 for 100 on standing up on it when I finally figured out I'm tad big for such a small board (5'9" & 205lbs). Then on a similar day at this same spot I found that if I could get into the wave (the hardest part paddling in without fins) I could generate crazy fast speed and get the board slotted pretty easy. I put on some fins and it was like riding a longboard boogie board without any drag, catching waves became a breeze so I haven't looked back. The few days I'd paddle a surfboard out I'd find myself wishing I'd used my paipo instead.
On this day a few short boarders surfed the peak next to me and my daughter. After a period of them watching me constantly get barrels they paddled over and tried their luck unsuccessfully on my side of the fence. Eventually drifting back to their peak.
"Sjaldan er ein báran stök."
There seldom is a single wave.
