What kind of single fin? Retro? Modern? If you want a retro single fin Tom Mahady is your guy. I'm sure he could modernize it for you too, but he pretty much learned how to shape a Lopez lightening bolt single fin directly from the guy who use to shape them for Lopez (Bill Barnfield). Barnfield was one of the original Lightening Bolt shapers and dropped a ton of knowledge on Tom. No one can beat that education here in MonCo. I'm sure Chris Chaize could do a good one for you. I've seen a few real nice Wynn single fins as well. I could do one for you too, but honestly for a board like that I would point you towards Tom.

Um... sorry Andrew, but Bill Barnfield did in fact shape for Lightening Bolt.
However, I was wrong about who Tom learned to shape the bolt from. The other Bill (Thrailkill) also shaped for Lightening Bolt, before Bill Barnfield. Tom learned from Thrailkill.
touche. you learn something new everyday.
