Meet our innovative and cutting edge Mini Paipo bodysurfing handboard.
The awesome Mini Paipo handboard has a state of the art design and new shape. It is extremely manoeuvrable, and is a super controllable handboard that allows optimal performance in the critical energy zone or the “pocket” of the wave.
Our improved Mini Paipo is our largest bodysurfing handboard and offers our uncompromising design, improved technology and streamlined fluid dynamics.
Our PPP Handboards are beautifully handcrafted from locally and sustainably grown paulownia wood in Australia.
For a lot of people, you won't get what's the big deal until you bodysurf with our extraordinary handboards for the first time. A mildly kicked nose, flat tail rocker, a “high-in-the-nose-to-lower-in-the-tail” rail line and “neutral handling” all contribute massively to achieving the best ride you are ever going to feel on a handboard or handplane.
Our handboards come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee for our customers ( Free returns for 30 days) and we ship our insanely popular PPP Handboards anywhere in the world every day (US, Brazil, Europe).
Handboards were a single dimension shape before the Velo handboards and the Mini Paipo takes a massive leap forward through:
- Uncompromising design - Drawing on PPP’s expertise, and with an uncompromising approach to design, they stripped weight, reduced drag and increased performance;
- Weight saving design - To enhance performance, handling and sheer handboarding feel, the PPP team knew they would have to minimise weight – everywhere. Lighter and stronger than many traditional handboards, the PPP design team used innovative techniques to reduce weight and maintain strength;
- Sublime fluid mechanics – improved shape and design improves water displacement and neutral balancing providing bodysurfers with improved performance.
