Hess Peanut Shark paipo

Unread post by jbw4600 » Sun Feb 16, 2014 3:04 pm

I saw one these at Mollusck surf shop in San Fransisco. They are really nice little boards with what looks like a steamed in rocker. Nice rails etc. However they are a little small for anyone over 5 feet tall. A 39 inch board with a rounded nose is about equivalent to a 36 or 37 inch bodyboard. http://hesssurfboards.com/peanut-sharks/39-peanut-shark

Hi,
I liked that one too. But being 6 feet tall it seems a little short. I did a scale-up to 43.5" here: http://mypaipoboards.org/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=415
its the second from left... Than played around with the nose (3rd from left).

Got the peanut shark and have taken it out twice. One session waist chest soft and today chest maybe head high Wally rights and choppy lefts.

Works good and drop ins are easy. Love the belly riding ability. Honestly closes thing to my paipo nui. I have been on a quest to find something similar. With the hess I think it found it.

Hey Airboy..I am interested in the Hess peanut too. Are you still liking it? Do you mind if I ask your height/weight?

Thanks, flojo
