    @Veterano, do you prefer the TA 7" in glass or hexcore?

    Would never us the hexcore fin as I surf amongst rocks. IMO, the weight issue is a non-issue.

    I would certainly use the Hexcore in the EB5LB that is used at OBSF. As Vet noted, my other EB5LB is stashed in Central America where the points are amazing, but rocky. The Hexcore is noticeably lighter, however.

    Here's a unique one. 9'10" custom. Loaned for me to ride. I'm honored to ride this from George Gerlach's RIP collection. Not one for me though. At 3.5 inches thick and lots of foam from stem to stern, it's not in my wheelhouse. Might be better suited for someone 240-300 lbs. WOW!!!

    Saw this a few years ago... https://www.surfysurfy.net/2014/03/10-cc-surfy-glider/
    I enquired about Bonzers when I ordered mine. CC reckoned they were only beneficial in steeper waves so I passed and went with a standard single fin set up. They do look exciting though!

    Malcolm has shaped a few pintail speedshapes, 9ft plus with a traditional 3 fin long-runner set up. They look amazing and would double up as a good glider in small, shapely surf, I always thought.
