We are intending to do an interview with Christine Brailsford one of these days. She is in N. County San Diego.

Kage might get upset. :roll:

hell, i would be upset too....

are we going to go the way of ksusa? and sell anyone who can get us in front of the cameras? i'm just surprised the self aggrandizing pendies havent latched their pseudo hippy gobbely gook to us yet. when that happens, i'm out!

That's an interesting story and background (in the "credit" thread)Glider; helps explain all the surf media publicity about that paipo maker. I always have to shake my head when I see the prices being charged and apparently paid on the paipos & handboards marketed to the hipster crowd. Lots of what's sold at the high end doesn't look any different than what came out of high school wood shop classes generations ago. However, I can't really begrudge the maker/sellers since we're in America, and capitalism, marketing, and/or hustling are the dominant paradigms.

My only beef is that the slicker marketing and "historical/documentarian" vibe that surrounds some of the more publicized neo paipo makers/riders could give the uninitiated the impression that their paipos are either innovative in design or somehow superior to others(I've seen this effect firsthand numerous times). Neither of which is true in most cases. Despite all the emphasis on historical shapers and innovators amongst the media connected retro riding crowd, scant or no mention is made of truly innovative (and still living & board making) paipo craftsmen like Lindbergh, Osserman, and Akisada. I think some in the "paipo biz" (who could have imagined there would still be such a thing in the 21st century)could do a better job of "giving credit where credit is due" and still not adversely impact their bottom line.

Hmm. I maybe cranky but I did not mean to be accusatory. I didn't think (maybe somewhat naively) that I was naming names.
Lets be bigger than that and extend an invitation to join the forum, we might just learn something. I would just write her but I also don't want to out anyone who I might have incited to express a rash opinion.

Girls in the woodshop. Oh my gawd! Someone is letting girls into the woodshop. Really overdue if you ask me.

The Liquid Salt article provides a link to her website:

I like her paipo. Sure the template is similar to your basic 1928 Popula Science Crescent Tail...

http://books.google.com/books?id=VicDAA ... ey&f=false

but her version has some intersting contours in the bottom and rails. Looks sort of like a rocker plane (or concave?) in the tail.

Paipo surfer in repose,
Nose on the nose,
No grunting he-man pose.
See how fast he goes!
What is it he knows?
