    That's a wicked design. You adding any colors to her? I need a twin fin fish. They look like a blast.

    Is that the case here? Have to say I haven't seen or a shape like this with parabolic stringers. I'm curious.

    Yeah I was pretty puzzled when I first saw them. A friend of mine in San Diego got a custom quad fish with similar rails and Scimitar fins, shaped by a guy named Schneider (I think). He loved it, until he ran it into one of those La Jolla reefs. Now he rides some hybrid one-off Bonzer that he swears by. Gotta love SoCal.

    I vote for a light translucent tint, clean cutlap, no pin.

    That was my first board! 6'4" and thin as a potato chip, rounded tail and a single stringer though. It's in my garage sitting in the corner collecting dust. I keep telling myself I'm gonna repair it one day but it's probably not worth the time, it's shot. Hasn't touched water in prob 18 years.

    like LBCrew said clean cut lap, you should also do a gloss coat with a tail patch
