Reknown as works of art, the surfboards designed and created by Andy Bick are fully functional. But these boards don't just pay lip service to functionality...these boards totally rip. So they look good they are a fusion of art and technology with absolute reverence to the boards that were designed by the ancient Pacific surfboard shapes. But what sets the boards apart are their unique shapes and incredible performance levels.

Paipo Glide bellyboards, paipos and alaias:
Bellyboards or as Andy calls them: Wave Gliders
These boards are finely handcrafted works which have been loosely based on the classic Cornish bellyboard dimensions (4ftx1ftx0.5"). Andy continues to develop and refine the nose, rocker and rail shapes, making these boards real fun in the surf with or without fins.
Paipo Glide Surfboards. For the past 2 years Andy has made boards as prizes for the World Bellyboard Championships. At WBBC 2010 he shaped 3 bellyboards to the classic Cornish bellyboard dimensions: 4ft x 1ft. However Paipo Glide bellyboards are shaped from a single piece of solid wood. They also have shaped rails and the bellyboard is painstakingly hand sanded and polished to a beautiful sheen using linseed oil, turps and beeswax, culminating in a work of art that also totally rips as a surfboard!
