Jim Mcnamara was one of the original Paipo board riders in the area back in 1962.

He shaped a Paipo board in foam in 1964 and glassed at Gordon & Smith. (It was the first foam Paipo board in the Cronulla area) It’s been under the house for 30+ years! Shape was taken from an Hawaiian Paipo board (rose wood), brought to the Cronulla area in 1962. “Only one of its kind at that time, and we shared it” said Jim.
