Its now 5 years since I documented my first paipo build here viewtopic.php?f=4&t=250

In that time I have tried, Pu and poly resin, eps and epoxy, pu and epoxy, hollow paulownia epoxy to coat, oiled thin paulownia solid board and a surf mat and have in the process learned a lot about what works and how boards/ rails actually work. And shaped a few boards for others.

After all this it turns out that the best performance board was the first one :lol: That poor board took a beating and many plane journeys till it was so beaten/sunken you would not believe! But even beaten and miss-shapen it still performed very well and retained it original feel. (lesson learned there too)

So I retired it and put it in the mail to California and had memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=114 build a computer file of it. (I will let him tell you how beaten it was!) But he did a fantastic job of recreating it original likeness.

(if anyone want to build one I am happy to share the file)

After a few false starts back in the UK with another shapers CNC machine I have finally today finished shaped it and it will be glassed this week. The aim is to see if it can mirror the first magic boards performance,

SDF paipo rincon rocket 001..."picture is worth 1,000 words"

It wasn't until I built the CNC file and viewed it in 3D that I could appreciate the elements of this shape.

Now that's proper use of CNC tech, reproduction of a magic board! Looking forward to hearing how it turns out.

Was the 001 in a fire, if it’s from riding you must be pulling big G s, I am imprested

I think over many surfs it got dinged and maybe had some water in it, I think then in the hold of the plane it got squashed with altitude (or some other more sensible physics)

probably had over 200 surfs on it.

Buzzing out hundreds of identical mediocre shapes using poor quality foam, then having low wage non-surfers scrub smooth and do crappy glass jobs on them. Ideally all that would happen in a 3rd world country with no safety regs enforcement.

Well, that's a relief. I wouldn't want to be accused of using CNC tech improperly.

Well after a poor run of surf conditions I finally got in the water with the new board and a stoked to say its fulfilled the project brief totally :D

The rocker and slight displacement hull in the front that helps the the board glide (displace) through that difficult 0 to 5mph before planing like the original did it there, I had struggled to make that happen with my other shaping attempts.

Its turns hard on a rail with great hold (finless) I round over the edge of the rail, the only hard edge is the back of the board.

Stoked!!!! 8-)
