An original “Fins Unlimited US 10.5 size fin box” retro fitted to Daryl’s #Quiksilver Longboard in place of a #FCS thruster setup now making this 90’s board into a more user friendly 2+1 setup.  Enjoy Daryl.

on fin impacting a 2m high car park barrier.

This lovely #Stewart #longboard came to me with”wonky” glassed on fin.

The fin had been botched by another “repair guy”

WP_20150507_007

Note how it leans to the right.

WP_20150519_003

Cut cleanly, that brown area is not a good sign…

Evidence of previous water intrusion.

WP_20150519_006

If in doubt cut it out, the flexy fin was due to the de-lam at the fin base.

WP_20150601_014 (2)

De lam sorted, fin glassed on with fin rope and

multiple staggered layers of 6oz glass.

WP_20150601_016

Some jobs just take longer than others, as the stringer and foam

were wet – well that has to dry out before any of the rebuilding can begin.

This classic log is now ready for pivot turns and noserides.

Wonder if the wonky fin helped his backhand turns?

Get it repaired right first time,

#jeffthedingman.

If your board has an outdated fin system.

WP_20150219_001

I can remove and replace it with your

requirements in mind.

Fin box placement taken from an ex comp

longboard #surfboard, agile turning was

the aim for the owner.
