[ Retro Single Fin ]

The Single Fin was the original short board design. During the first decade of the short board revolution the vast majority of all designs were single fins. Rare exceptions would be Single fins with small rail bites, Fish with keel fins, and Twin Fins. Rockers, profiles, outlines, bottom contours, and rails varied by the design and the shaper, but they all had one fin. Applying contemporary design elements to this traditional design yields a bitchn specialty board. Design features - Rocker: Low Speed Box, Low Continuous, or Low Relaxed. Profile: Moderate foil with adequate volume. Outline: Any of the contemporary shortboard tail configurations. Bottom Contours: Classic early single fin bottom featuring vee or tri plane entry to tri plane wide point to panel vee wide point to tail. Or classic contemporary shortboard featuring vee entry to single concave wide point to single or double concave from wide point to tail. Deck & Rails: Flat or crowned deck. Moderately full rail with foiled rail profile for control for bigger surfers. Lower moderately thinner rail for smaller surfers.
