Single Fin Mellow - 7'6" Classic Single Fin

Namaste Sea Spray. It's been a while since I posted anything on my blog so I thought I'd better pull my finger out and splash a few photos up on the site.

This is my latest creation. A seventies inspired big-guy single fin designed by Grant Newby and built by my good self. Grant also had the foam blank cut for me. I've christened it Single Fin Mellow after one of my favourite Jason Baffa surf films Single Fin Yellow.

5 mm top and bottom paulownia skins finished with 2 coats of rolled epoxy resin.

 Some basket weave detail on the nose.

And basket weave on the sides of the tail.

6 x 2mm thick paulownia strips wrap easily around the tail and blend into the 5 mm rail strips.

 My organic Gold Finger bananas are flowering. Woo Hoo.


  1. How much tail and nose rocker? 50/50 rails all around?

    1. Tail rocker 3"
      Nose rocker 4 1/4"
      50/50 rail at the nose
      60/40 rail through the side
      70/30 downward tucked rail with a sharp bottom edge at the tail
