    Here are some shots of a vee bottom Jim did in Portugal last summer. What’s old is new - this partially based of the Crystal Ships done for Bahne in the late 60’s.

    Way back when, in the beginning, , , , we were agog to see the Vee's at the local shops (Surfboards Hawaii?). I rode Tony Tan The Sunshine Mann's V at O'club.

    Seems like the modern V bottom boards are slowly gaining a following. Better rockers ,foils and rails. Could make the V a cult board.
    I have been thinking about a modern V With a wide fish tail. About 8’6” for my short board. The deep cut in the tail combined with the V might give the a little bit more holding power in steeper waves. Still thinking a what would be Good fin set up. Maybe a 4 plus 1 to experiment with different fins.
