Finally got round to finishing the Paipo’s…
I painted the one green, which is the only water-based paint I had lying around, & also stuck a thin film of EVA foam on. The Purists will probably turn their noses up, but past experience has taught me that it really helps having even just a thin film of protection for your hip-bones & ribs.
A mate of mine, Nicki Carstens, has a business making surfcraft & he helped me coat the Paipo’s in a layer of epoxy resin. For the ‘Wide Ride’ I also asked him to put a layer of cloth on, since it was flexing both vertically & horizontally.
Travelling to Jeffreys Bay over this Holiday Season, so hoping to score some waves there with my new boards & my 4th Gear Flyer Mat… cant wait!
