This is a good example of how I have been able to remake my Retro models accurately. For some of the models I have had the original board to refer to. For all the models I’ve used the original plan shape templates. Some had shaping notes written on the template & others were kept in a folder. This is the 38 year old 7’4″ template of the Round Pin single fin that I made for the Hawaiian contest season in 1979. Various thickness, rocker, rail & depth / positioning of the Vee measurements are recorded on the template & the notes stuck on it. I had written Pipeline on the template as this is where I had envisaged surfing the original board mostly. Its the next board I’m shaping of my current project to recreate my three board quiver from that year. @burfordblanks @darrenburford66 #markrichardssurfboards #mrsinglefin #mrretrosinglefin #mr1979retrosinglefin #mr1979retrosinglefinmodel #mr1979retrocontestquiver #mr1979hawaiicontestquiver
