A vintage MR “Bat Tail” Twin Fin from the early 1980’s

A vintage MR “Bat Tail” Twin Fin from the early 1980’s. This one was made in the Gordon & Smith factory in San Deigo & was shaped by Robin Prodanovich. The standard tail back then & now on the Retro series of Twin Fin models is a wing swallow. We made quite a few Bat Tails & from memory they went really well, although not a lot different to how the boards worked with a swallow. I can’t remember where the idea or the inspiration came from. It could have been as simple of thinking this tail will look really cool. I have been inspired by seeing this old photo of a bat tail & have shaped a few recently incorporating a Bonzer bottom & a thruster fin set up into the design. #mrbattail #mrbattailtwinfin @bonzer_front @campbellbros @campbellbros_hawaii @robin_prodanovich #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin
