    Building a Paipo?

    Here is one I shaped from plywood. Belly in the nose tapered to a v in the tail, dished deck. Heaviest of my paipos. It's just wood, go ahead and experiment.

    Building a Paipo?

    A sheet of plywood is barely buoyancy positive - this is good in my opinion. Easy to duck dive, and it is planning that generates lift while in the wave, and is wickedly fast. The same for paulownia. Different designs. And personal preference - when I am prone on a board in surf I really don't...

    Building a Paipo?

    Most straightforward, buy a piece of 3/8 plywood, cut it to shape, round the edges and seal it. More elegant is to use Paulownia that is thick enough to shape. Jon Wegener used to sell blanks as well as finished boards and is local - https://www.wegenersurf.com/paipos/. Maybe take a look here...

    Surf Mats... What's the Deal?

    Cowboy Camping SanO

    I believe that if staying overnight you have to pay campground rates, not just the day parking rate. Correct me if I am wrong. The better choice is San Mateo Campground if it is available. Much better camping and day parks pass included in rate.

    What do you think when you see a woman in the lineup?

    Next weekend, Oceanside pier, hope for good conditions, added a longboard division this year with some local talent! - https://supergirlsurfpro.com/ Went back to first page of this thread and saw some long-gone members. Made me think I miss G-Coast's posts, but not his preference for eating...

    I'm betting, although not current on regulations, that the State Parks don't allow overnight camping except in designated campgrounds. I think you can still camp in Trails parking lot, but someone else should confirm that. Miscreant - you probably know the deal there.
