Paipo Handplane StokeFest

Paipo StokeFest!

It’s what I am assuming is the first paipo, handplane, mat, whatever is propelled by the waves and fins event to be held by the Paipo Society, as far as I could read. The event was arranged by our good friends over at the Paipo Society.  Check ‘em out here.  It will be a gathering of all guys and gals who, like myself, simply love the ocean and want to have fun in it.  

Just a quick FYI: 

The Paipo Stokefest has been moved to north of the Scripps Pier. The day, next Sunday July 29th, remains the same. The surf forecast looks good! As of Friday, we have 2-3 at 18 sec.  Check out Surfline (scripps) Here.  So load up the fins and whatever you have that goes with the fins and we will see you in the water!
