  • Looks asymmetrical. Optical illusion?

  • I was under the impression that fins should draw lines that eventually meet with the stringer..? I'm no shaper but there's something off about that board.

  • 2 and 4 fins look a bit straight. I didn't notice anything in person so could be my terrible photography skills too. Not a pro product photo by any means... I took these at the patagonia store in a hurry.


    It did sell. I wonder about a ride report. Will have to ask Dave and report back.

  • OK people. Check Tomo's fin set up. Some models are barely toed in. I think they are going along the same lines.

    At 5'4 you can easily turn that thing. Esp with that foil.

    A few glaring typos though. Like misspelling Hosoi.

    Ouch.

  • Dave being the shaper, I don't know the buyer... it didn't sell through me.


    Description was copied from his site... probably should have checked those first. Thanks for the heads up, Kyle. Fixed "Hosoi" and "straight".
