Please check out the link to Grain Surfboards. I will be going to Maine to teach a class September 8th and 9th. We will be making paipos. Last year we did a alaia class. It was a really good time. Most of us camped at the Grain farm. We surfed in the morning, worked on the boards during the day, surfed in the evening, then had a couple of beers with dinner. Everyone in the class made a really nice board, and said they had a really good time, highlight of their summer.
I have been riding paipos a lot. The boards are really fun to ride, and make the most out of every session. Definitely a board everyone should have in you quiver.
