    I don't really agree with the logic that riding a single fin is being nostalgic or whatever that dude said. I never thought of it that way. I just surf the LB that way because I like how it rides. It came as a 2+1 but when I dropped the side bites it got so much more maneuverable and is way smoother of a ride. Could be all in my head but that's my story. On my Coil I go with a thruster / quad setup, depending on my mood. There's no wrong way to eat a Reese's...

    I get what you're saying. I like the green single fin board that everybody takes turns riding in "Thicker Than Water", I think they made it from a longer board that was broken. They all ripped on that board! Made it look so fun.

    Wow I don't really agree with any of this... Sounds like a kook wrote it... Maybe the beaver tail thing and the short shorts I can agree with... But seriously- did this guy ever ride a retro longboard? Who wouldn't want to tow in if they had the chance??
    Haha - ok I can laugh at it!

    And seriously- have you guys ever tried finless in the summer?? Serious fun! Soooo much more speed when you cruising down the line...
    Wait. Maybe this guy has to take a trip to Belmar... Or maybe he already is from Belmar!? Haha

    #7 Asyms......

    My theory on these is the shaper F'd it all up so he just starts hacking away at it. I think it's definitely a west coast thing. And honestly I'm kinda jealous of someone that can refine a board down to that level to match their surfing. That's some Galapagos islands kinda sh!t. Was the surfboard created from his image or did it evolve into it's present state?

    But this? Come on.... it looks like some kinda cosplay junk.

    All boards are not proper fits for everybody. The problem comes when people try to ride one design just like another.

    And all boards can be fun in the proper conditions. Droppin in on a double over bomb at Middle Steamers is a great feeling on a single fin. I've only tried it on a wierd 5'8-10ish (i dont remember exact dims) disk with a super pin tail, but like 22 inch nose. Called it the chode. Rode a old 70's single fin in some head highish surf out here and was wishing for a fish, but knew on a little bigger day that 7'0 would have been amazing!
