finless flavor

Hand Shaped and Glassed by Donald Brink.

the "Milk & Honey" arrives. a finless concept. minimally finned for local current conditions and understanding of lines and limits. So far in testing the board is beyond, these joys come at the strangest of times on a wave. At least the whole experience seems strange, after doing something so similar for so many years and now having it need to be different to work and yet develop such unbelievable vignettes of possible future consistent paths. I'm committed. this is a regular footed surfboard. measures 6'4" in length and finished weighs less than 6 pounds. next experiment is to make a heavy model- ultra light felt great, I do battle to sleep wondering the possibilities of a heavier less dense structure with similar concepts.
