Small wave paipo

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!

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