Kind of wondered the same thing. I lived closer, I'd offer $200, he would take it. Well, they don't surf, so they prod were just tossin the board around
The more boards Frosty buys, the less surf we get.
I would probably take a section out of the middle. Will require more cutting/glassing but then you can really get the shape you are looking for. I think Zeroevol is right, you might want a little more width up front than that nose shape has to offer.
I've sold all my surf able boards except that nsp.... Have the old wrv hanging on the wall and my daughter has the old repaired rip curl... Couldn't pass on the paipo been wanting a fiberglass board in that shape to prone ride for quite some time.... You think I'm a jinx scarecrow?
There's a good reason people don't produce or prone buy fiber glass boards frosty
Oh man lady scarecrow says your a jinx
I bet here bottom turn alone would blow your mind
Why is that jawn? Not cost effective?
No think about all those dents from your fat elbos while you truck drive it down the line
No flex neither..but youwouldn't have the slightest clue what you need that for
Keep being an innovator frosty
Jawn you should take ole Frosty here under yer wing. Teach em the ropes, get high together, bond, etc.
They make pads for top of boards nowadays if that news hasn't reached up to jersey yet... if yo candy azz needs a soft place to lay
I'm far from busting airs and flips and 360s and all that jazz I'm sure that's what u need flex for...
Course if u spent more time in ocean than dancing poolside you might know [video]https://youtu.be/axmsB5YQvjw[/video]
I just wonder what you do with all these boards. I own 2, a bodyboard and a 9' longboard. They're both collecting dust in my garage, 'cause neither one seems to be just the right thing for riding 18" shorebreak.
Have you considered moving?
NYC offers pounding A-frames all year round
Stuntin' on belly board Ol' Frosty...you know that is what your describing
Dancin' pool side...ol' dude how'd you know I totally went to this biatchin' pool party this weekend
Geez you know you really fulfill those southern stereo types
Frost I live almost 50 miles from the closest New Jerseyian break...I still have surfed more "real waves" this year then you've ever seen...not this dribble you drabble aboutz oh here...Ms. Scarecrow knows what I be sayin'
Don't get all sore know old fella...I'm not here to have mucho macho contest with you
Just remember if somebody starts axing advice aboutz bodyboardsin' they probably ain't talkin' aboutz belly boarding
Well in reality the threades name is new board in its contents it is explained that it is a paipo board which is ridden quite differently from today's bodyboard a I would imagine and the things that can be done with it are different so its apples to orange I'd say
Don't believe I ever asked for advice on bodyboarding in this thread
and your actually fulfilling the stereotypes of northerners also considering how great and better you are at
Sure I've seen nj waves you guys do have good breaks up there I'll give you that
But that is a win win so now you can stay up there and not come down here
It's about time we sacraficed a board in a bonfire to bring a long absent swell around.
tried that once, Chesapeake broke all the way up to Annapolis in one desolate massive rouge wave. a single ripple. all the way up. many crabs died.
Yeah, it's looking like I'll have to move if I ever want decent waves again.
U know u like them jawn....

Another tread that turns into a b1tch fit... big surprise...
In small surf, traditional wooden paipo is a cross between bodysurfing and bodyboarding. Because the buoyancy is low, you have to sort of swim them around, even more than an alaia, which struggles to catch waves cause you're paddling only, without fins. It's only when the surf get's bigger and/or more hollow that the wood paipo comes alive. A fast, hollow, 4-5' glassy day would be perfect, but at that point, who wants to go prone... Still, they get you in the water, and are a good way to make little junky days in the summer fun.
