Small wave paipo

Unread post by Aph » Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:14 pm

Hi, I'm wondering when it comes to a small wave board, what dimensions work better? Does it need to be longer like an alaia, or wider like a HPD style? I want to build another board for mushy onshore days
Cheers

Alaia is 48" inches and up. Hawaii Paipo Design has it's range on wide tail to their specific board heights. Shape one like a snow board and try that shape and height could range 32" inches and up. It's should be to that person size and height. Good luck!
