Wooden Spoon

This is the first spoon I have made specifically for surfing standing up.  The 5'0'' I could stand up on, but it is a much better paipo used with swim fins.  This 5'5'' should be enough to go without the fins and do some lalaing.

6'8'' Bio Wegg/ Sustainable Surf


The Wegg is great for days when the waves are chest high and up.  It paddles good, and it is fast and loose.  It's tri fin system keeps it stable, more controllable than a quad fin.  The pictured Wegg is epoxy, Entropy bio resin, and eps foam.  Do to the resin,  the board is qualified to be a part of the Sustainable Surf Program.  http://www.sustainablesurf.org/ecoboard/

6'8'' Bio Wegg


This board is glassed with Entopy clear Bio Resin, shaped with eps foam, and has paulownia stringers I glued in.  The board really has a lot of inertia and is super fast and does strong turns.  It has a mix of the eps, epoxy resin and the wood.  I can't wait to get it in some good waves.

Hook up

Bio-Minis at Patagonia Cardiff



5'3'' and a 5'5'' Bio-Minis are now available at the Patagonia in Cardiff.  These are very fast and maneuverable boards.  The extra volume in these short boards allow good paddling for catching waves..  They are made from the best, eco-friendly materials presently available.  Curious? Go to the Patagonia store and try the demo board.

Lip Bash

Im impressed with this shot of Jim from Sunday at the paipo event at Scripps.  The waves didn't have a lot of power or size.  The paipo can find the nooks and crannies of goodness on days like this.  Jim, on his 4'4'' found some juice and did a floater Curran would take note.

6"10'' Wegg


The Wegg is a great all around board. It is a Good wave catcher.  It is also very maneuverable.  The two plus one has smooth turns, but able to do quick cutbacks and off the lips.  It works good in small and large surf.  Hey, tube riding is no problem.  This one has a pigment top and bottom.

Modern Kookbox

video
This is last Saturday.  It was real high tide and really cold, but the shape was good.  We had a blast and caught a bunch of waves, especially compared to the others out.  The kookboxes trim really well and go fast.

Surfie/paipo demo day down under

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFgKVm3PAT4&list=HL1357648501&feature=mh_lolz

Check this video Tom made.  It shows the Surfie, paipo, in action with for the most part, people who are new to surfing.  I like how the video shows one is able to get fun rides without having to stand up.  This is good for older people learning to surf.  It gives instant gratification, less fustration.  Also, you can see how the better riders pull into little tubes, that no one riding any other surf vehicle would have noticed tubes were to be had on this small wave day.
