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.
