1979 Retro Single Fin
The 1979 Retro Single Fin model is now available as a stock board or to custom order.
It has been faithfully recreated using an original board to create the model size range.
It retains all the features of the original single fins I was shaping in 1979 including
the same dimensions and plan shape curves from the original templates, retro rocker and
thickness distribution with a beak nose, and flat panel V bottom.
Set or fin box options available using MR 1979 fin template custom made.
I had a lot of competitive success on single fins from the mid to late 70’s. I rode single
fins up until 1982 in big surf.
My single fin designs were influenced by my shaping heroes of the single fin era, such as
Dick Brewer, Reno Abellira, Gerry Lopez, Tom Parrish, Jim Richardson, Geoff McCoy,
and Ben Aipa.
The features are:
• Retro thickness and volume, which make sit a dream to paddle
• an area round pin, which is great for tube-riding
• The original spiral V for the true retro feel
The secret to enjoying single fins is to find a wave with a wall, bust out the ‘soul man’
moves, feel the wave and enjoy the flow.
Set fin is standard but a fin box can be custom ordered.
Finish is gloss and polish with 70’s era spray design.
Size range from 5’ 8” to 6’ 8”
