Some random pics

Nothing like a dead catfish to cement a friendship

Another awesome hollow wood board from Patrick Burnett at Groundswell Surfboards. This is a swallow tail twin in Western Red Cedar, Obeche and Pine with custom artwork. And some real funky wood with a tigers eye burl that I found for a fin.

Dr Strange Fin..

So the fin is as silly as the board. Long base at 9" with as near to parabolic as I can go at the back end on a 5" depth. The front section will be thickened up and foiled into a semi bulb/tubercle but not much only a few mills or so. Going for a super efficient fin with lots of hold and drive.... We will see.

Double Sim?

So this a response to boredom... Boardom maybe??? Started out as a 5.8 stringerless Sim then I turned the template round to re-draw the nose section on the other end of the foam as I wasn't happy with the flow.... and hey it looked pretty neat as a double ended Sim. Hulled out the bottom and scooped the nose. Going to put some whack fins on it so stay tooned.

Johns 10 1/2 incher in all its glory!!!!

So the Slim template has become my fin testing platform. The design is so very stable and easy that you really feel the influence of the fin. Learning so much about nose-rider fins.
