The Embryo of all Modern Flow

We love Paipo, they are possibly the most fun prone wooden surfboard you could ever ride and everything about them is purely functional to enhance the surfing experience, from the reduced nose to minimise spray and ease the board into turns to the wide tail that gives maximum planing area for lift and speed.

Paipo are the root of all modern surfing and skating with a direct lineage from the surf of Waikiki in the 1950s, the shortboard revolution of the late 60s, to the sidewalks of Dogtown in the 70s to the aeriels of John John Florence today. So when you surf one you really are tapping the source of all forms of modern day sliding whether its on wheels or water.

For the Traditional Surfing Co Paipo we took the classsic Hawaiian Taro leaf shape and gave it a slightly fuller outline that suits typical Cornish and UK surf a little better. The dimensions are 4ft x 2ft at the tail and the nose rocker pronounced but still relatively slack, as with all our boards, to promote easier and faster planing.

But what really sets our Paipo apart is the combination of a deep single concave with fluted wings either side. What this means is that not only do you get stunning acceleration and speed from the concave as it funnels and contains the water flow through the length of the board rather than allowing it to release from the rails, whilst at the same time creating lift and decreasing friction, but also the fluted wings to the rear of the board can be engaged in the face of the wave giving incredible grip.

As with all Traditional Surfing Co boards we do not compromise on the quality of wood or materials we use. The Paipo are laminated by ourselves in a custom press using hand selected sheets of marine quality gaboon. To add to the durability we use highly waterproof adhesive systems that are sourced from the USA and are manufactured for the skateboard industry, and we finish the board with a special formula waterproof satin finish coating that enhances the natural beauty of the wood.
