Hi there everyone, so I'm officially off and away on my second board build and I'm really stoked on it. I'm looking to make a 7'3"ish retro pintail. Actually, something very similar to this shape posted recently: https://www.swaylocks.com/user/reset/115351/1628262236/PA8IzMbYrANmjxY1u...
I'll update with pics soon but so far it's still a rough and very fat and wobbly and misproportioned homemade blank. I did the "cut rockered strips and laminate together" method to build the blank from some 3" EPS construction foam (that I scored for free!) so levelling and squaring up the blank is a bit of work, but it's getting there.
Anyhow, my main question is about fins. I was thinking that I'll go with a single fin. I might make it myself and glass on, or maybe I'll do a single fin box. Any suggestions on if I should do single fin or something else for this type of board? Also, I know there are TONS of different single fin shapes, but I don't know anything about them. Anyone able to point me to a resource where I can learn about what different fin shapes do, or why to choose certain shapes over others? Or if it matters at all? Or even some templates would be nice!
Here's a photo of an outline I put made in boardcad:
Advice on shape would also be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!!
