7-2 Single Fin...

"Morning of the Earth" is one of my favorite surf flicks. The 7'-8' single-fins were state of the art at the time, and the smooth, flowing lines being drawn by the riders inspired me to shape one for myself.
 This board is 7'2" 13-1/2 x 21-1/2 x 14-1/4 2-3/4"  Rocker is pretty flat throughout with a little V in the tail. Tucked 60/40 rail turning down hard in the last 16".
I love yellow surfboards with red fins....reminds me of summer.

Fin choice is critical on these. I chose the Skip Frye Flex because its a little more upright and a little stiffer than the L-Flex.
I like to do my pinlines in any color but boring black. A color that contrast with or compliments the primary color really "pops". For an extra bit of detail, ask your shaper to order a stringer glue color that again, contrasts with or compliments the primary color. Unlike pinlines, stringer glue color is a freebie on my shapes.
