MR 1979 SINGLE FIN CONCAVE RETRO POLISH PINLINE
This concave retro single fin has had a lot of competitive success on single fins from the mid to late 70s. Mark Richards rode single fins up until 1982 in big surf. Mark Richards designed his single fins with influence from his shaping heroes of the single fin era, such as Dick Brewer, Reno Abellira, Gerry Lopez, Tom Parrish, Jim Richardson, Geoff McCoy, and Ben Aipa.
It features a retro thickness and volume, which make it a dream to paddle and an area round pin, which is great for tube-riding. This board is available with a choice of bottom shapes like the original spiral V for the true retro feel or a more modern concave to V which gives it more responsiveness in small surf.
The secret to enjoying single fins is to find a wave with a wall, bust out the man moves, feel the wave and enjoy the flow.
A set fin is standard but a fin box can be custom ordered. Finish is gloss and polish with 70s era spray design.
