Model 21- Jake's skeleton V.5

 After surfing the Greg Melieush rounded pin tail twin fin I was blown away by the smooth transitions out of turns delivered by the rounded pin tail.

So I thought it was time to try it out for myself.

Jake and I had already worked out what art we wanted to do!

Model 18- Jake's skeleton V2.

Resin tint quad.

Cut lap, with resin tint.

Tried it as a twin fin. I could really feel the difference in the fin placement. In a bad way!

Model 20- Jake's skeleton V.4


I was working from a different template on this one so I had to decide where to place the fins. I dug into the 'design library' and pulled out my best 3 performing boards. A 1978 Bob Mc Tavish shaped Sky twin fin, a 1980 Mark Richards (designed) twin fin and a 1982 Bob Hurley shaped twin fin. I measured up the fin placements and marked them out on the new board. Interesting to see the difference and the slight change in toe angle.
I took the best of all and went the average.

Jake and I are planning the next paint job already.

Model 19- Jake's skeleton V3.

They say practice makes perfect and when your on to a good thing stick to it. So Jake and I did our third version of the 'Jake-robot-skeleton-twin-fin".
The aim with this model was to make the deck and tail a little flatter, the rails a little more rolled, the single to double concave a little more pronounced and the glass job a little lighter.

Artist at work

Series 1, 2 and 3. Done as twin, tri fin and quad version.

I'm sure you've heard about the swell that hit sydney recently. It was pretty bloody good everywhere.

This on has already had a run in South OZ.

Model 17- Rocket Fish

5' 8" x 20 1/2" x 2 1/2".
My favourite board at the moment. What a little rocket!!
I pulled in the nose outline in  a little, narrowed the tail with some flyers and cut a deeper tail swallow  so it might hold on in some hollower waves.
Thick and fast!
Pigment foam stain and pigment resin on every layer including the filler coat.
