Well, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. It's the same thing with our paipos. So, if you got a snapped foamboard hand it in to us and we will turn it into a new super cool new surfing tool for you. A paipo is a board that every surfer should have in their quiver. It is actually the cool version of a bodyboard. Depending on the size of your discarded stick it might be possible to make even two Paipos out of it out, or alternatively, a brand new surfboard. Did we mention that we love Upcycling?
As flat as a pancake, you can fit into tubes that a stand up surfer may not even notice. The paipo takes that bumpy knee high wave and turns it into a speedy overhead barrel that will get anyone stoked to go surfing. These boards are whole lot of fun, but they are a serious wave riding tools. A perfect addition to your quiver… at whatever stage of surfing you are in.
Prices start at 300,00€ for a Paipo depending on the design and dimensions. To get a quote please give us a call or drop us a line by using the Email Button below. Prices can also vary due to the size and quality of the old board.
For those nostalgic stylers amongst you, that have the skills and are looking for how surfing felt for the ancient hawaiians we also have an Alaia in offer. It is basically a super thin surfboard without fins, not that easy to handle. If you bought one and figured out that a pair of fins underneath is not bad for keeping the line, it still makes an awesome piece of art right next to your sofa.
Our Alaia is also made of Paulownia. For good performance is a ha concave bottom starting one third of the board towards the tail. As it basically made out of a flat plank there is only minimal Rocker hand planed on the tip of the nose.
We finish the board with just a few layers of boiled linseed oil to make it more durable.
If you wish another Outline or like to adjust the lentgth and thickness according to your bodyweight, no problem! Just send us an email and we will get in touch with you to discuss about customization and pricing.
Handplanes are by far the smallest surfboards we have on offer . Handplanes serve as a planning device on the water, allowing you, to ride the wave faster, longer and with more control when you are bodysurfing.
They are not more than 18.5 inch long and fit on your hand with an adjustable strap or a handhole. The handplanes are made of the offcuts of our wooden surfboards. We finish our handplanes with 100% linseed oil.
The coolest things about riding waves with a handplane is: “Its always double overhead.” They are by far the best thing since sliced bread. Make sure you add it to your quiver.
All our handplanes have a single Concave on the bottom. Besides that you can choose from different wood types and shapes depending on your preferences. it can be either crafted with a handhold or a strap. We don't charge extra money for any of these options. Just get in touch with us to discuss further details!
