Which one? Pretty close to that part of cansas but not invited over for cocktails, yet.... Used to be a Coors/Bud town. Now it's a wine town with craft beer places. Mike
The template I'm sending you, is the one used for Rooster's board above. The nice thing about boards made with that template, is that they surf like a much smaller board than they are.
SHAPER SINCE 1958
I was hoping Bill would jump in.
Would either of you (Bill or rooster Mike) mind telling me how wide the tail is at the 12" mark and at the tail block?
Just saw this today. Single fins ripping.
Does anyone remember my prediction that the next ''breakthrough'' would be the ''re-discovery'' of the single fin ? Never doubt me!
What impresses me in the video is how they seem to be riding those boards the same as a thruster, especially Taj. I've never seen anyone double pump a single, but he doesn't know any better.
I saw the same thing. There was a common maneuver, used in the ''mini gun'' era, which was a form of pumping. It amounted to sculling the (single) fin, with a quick rocking motion, to gain a little extra speed. It was not pretty, but it did seem to work.
I remember back in the day some guys were able to do that when they were slightly behind a section and make it around. I was only about 50% successful. I found if I went out just a little more and pushed as hard as I could, I would get more out of the bottom turn, and project out further.
I'm very impressed with the way these single fin boards were surfed.
I remember that prediction, Bill. I like some of the Alex Knost videos out there. I don't know how to imbed them, but there are a couple in Central America with very nice single fin surfing. Check it out. Mike
