Wave Tools twin fin Part 11


My mission to compile a 1979 to 1982 Californian innovation period collection just came one step closer to reality with the addition of this fantastic Lance Collins shaped Waves Tools tine fin to the collection. A superb example of the genre featuring unique 'chimed' rails, wide tail and 'only in California' wide stumpy fins that I'm assuming evolved from the twin fin fishes from La Jolla that were popular in the mid to late 70's.

I generally believe in removing all stickers to try to get the board back to as original condition as possible but the Rip Curl sticker, in that font, size and layout, is such perfectly accurate to the Echo Beach period that it had to stay.



When 9 decals is not enough.


Chimed, chamfered or beveled edge rails.
