That's cool frost. I wanna F around on a paipo...actually saw these rare Greg Noll ones in some random vid recently. wanna get one of those cork paipo/bb deals too. Anyway, Godspeed.
You making one?
I would think you would need it to be wider across the front of the board
I think it's a waste of time, but... If you decide to do it:
Use a carpenter's square to make a perpendicular line from rail to rail on the bottom of the board.
Clamp a piece of rigid foam to the bottom of the board so it' acts like a jig so you can...
Run a circular saw across the bottom of the board, cutting off the part you want. But before you do...
Tilt the base plate so it sets the saw blade at an angle to give you a bevel cut. (You want the bottom of the board longer than the deck.)
Slightly round the edges with a sanding block, spackle to seal the exposed foam... glass, sand, hotcoat.
PS... I've cut boards in half many times with a circular saw. Use a fine tooth blade and you'll get a very clean cut and no delam.
That board brings back some memories. First one I ever owned 11 years ago.
it may be yours? and could be yours again...how much is that fond memory worth to you?
I am cracking up!
1. why do u thinks its a waste of time(my thinking is with that much foam in the back end and middle it should float pretty good..)
2. what do you do with the ones you cut in half?
3. down here we use hand hacksaws still...keeps the muscles big
I just think you should keep it as a surfboard... it's not snapped, delammed, or beat to sh!t, so why destroy it? Make a real one from a real blank... even a stripped board that's shot might have a core decent enough to re-purpose into a paipo.
I've cut boards in half for restaurants... Once time I built this guy 6 brand new longboards... then just cut them in two. If I didn't make some decent coin doing it, it would have killed me.
I second LB
yea ur right ,it does float well its nicked everywhere but ive repaired them.....,ill keep on the lookout for a decent snapped board...to try this project.. guy had a nice longoboard broke almost in half for 20$ but I missed it... ...let the swell come im sure there will be some soon..lol thanks again
Yo frost, pick this up for me and I'll be down to get it!

got this lil shortboard tossed in with a sale,,smaller than id like but might could be repurposed...
that's a good price..
If anything, that free board you got is the one you should be ripping apart to experiment with.
Yeah, that Fartknocker looks fun and that price is good
Frosty yesterday you were looking for a wetsuit
Today your now talking about buying/building yet another board
Geez bruh between video shoots and buying a 100 pieces of equipment were does you find the time to get better at actually riding waves
What kinda contest does one win a surfboard in without having to surf for it?
