9'6'' one fin pin.

the one fin pin is the result of a collaboration between surfer/shaper tyler warren and shaper terry martin. beautiful double stringer, piggish, single fin nose rider with wide point pulled back. nice and heavy for lots of glide. and a pintail to facilitate almost effortless cutbacks.
vern gifted me this bad boy for my birthday this feb. i was floored. in addition to a bitchin' party, i received this beauty. hands down one of the nicest, most thought out gifts i've ever received. i have had a blast on this thing. riding it almost exclusively since (in part because its been flat but mostly because its such a fun board to surf). im very happy with my hobie.
i'd never ridden a pintail longboard, nor a board with the wide point back of center. it felt a little squirrely/ shakey at first when walking, but i've adjusted and come to like it. especially on cut backs. the board comes around suprisingly quick for its size.

happy ending.
