Groovy. A cool one. Ride report when you can.

I am curious about this model. Before buying it I couldn’t really find any reports or discussion on it.

Was this not a popular model or not many made for some reason? That or everyone with one is too busy riding it. Haha

His website mentions a slight concave in the nose, but this one is rolled nose to tail. More pronounced roll from the side stringers out with between having just a hint of roll. Thinking it’ll plane out nicely compared to a heavily rolled bottom throughout

Just a guess but with glass on fin like that I’d say it was more likely a custom order and maybe tweaked the Scorpion design for whoever was ordering.

Yep your right - if anyone has ever ordered a board from BJ they know every custom is %100 tailored to suit your wave, frame(including shoe size ) and style of surfing

Interesting. Never heard of toeing a center fin.

Of course the guy could’ve bought it used, but said he bought it from mollusk for his wife. Didn’t sound like he custom ordered, but again could’ve been used.

Posted to sway locks and one over there said it looked like Q-cell filler. There is a good crunch in the fin so maybe it was displaced and the guy didn’t set it well.

I dunno, but I’m tempted to copy the template and put in a new one

FT/FS: 7’2 Fineline Egg

Buttery and shreddy. It is nicely foiled and in decent shape. Pressures on the deck and 3 1-2 inch dings repaired with Suncure.

Thought I would give the Fineline cult first crack at this before I posted it to the classified and CL. Trades for other Finelines/ Andreinis get preference. Headed to SoCal soon.

DM if interested please.

Such a killer length for that shape. I miss mine.

1.5 years of east coast searching and finally got my hands on a Fineline! Was in Hawaii for work and one popped up on the big island. I was on Oahu, but got a flight over and The guy was nice enough to meet me at the airport and make the exchange.

Beyond stoked! Not the prettiest, but I see the life still in her… going to post to another thread on opinions to fix all the individual problems or sand all over and apply a new coat.
