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.

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.
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.
