It is very very beautiful, what a great job. Congratulations

How is a paipo of this style compared with a without horns?

The idea attracts me a lot, your design is practically what I have in my head

Just to clarify. This isn't my board. I found the board on a search. I believe it was made for a guy from Oregon. No more details were available when Rod tried to find out more.

That's a LOT of fin seems to me. With the vacuum rails and that much concave, I would bet it would fly with no fins at all as well as hold in just tine.

I also think it's a Fins excessively, but we do not know what wave size and sea condition will enter

I'm refining the design of my paipo, in a little while I'll have time to make it. maybe later this week

I have doubts with the tail, that I have to make templates and see how my legs work without bothering the horns. easy task

but if I have doubts with the angle of the keels toe-in, I think that 6 inches is well set since the horns will also stabilize, I'm thinking of a system similar to quad. 2 keels and 2 horns

any recommendation with the angle of the fins toe in?

Opening day, He did not catch many waves, but it has given me good feelings. Next week more waves
