    Do you have a side shot?
    The light is giving the impression of
    Some serious nose rocker..
    And wow those side are far back..
    If it was just ..say futures boxes.
    I would venture that it was meant to be either a
    Single or twin..
    I saw a board on mollusksf site.
    I think"soma" was the label..anywho..
    Interesting find..ekim...very interesting..

    That was
    That was my 2nd Stinky. I asked Bob to foil it out a bit more, 2 3/4 at the stringer & we made that 1 obviously a 2+1. ( the original was a single) The fin set up is a tight cluster with the leading edge of the center fin even with the trailing edge of the front fins. One of the best features of the Stinky is the rail profile. Bob said he uses a " Takayama rail" & it is pure butter off the bottom. I remember 1 session in particular where most guys were air dropping the take offs & this board was able to set a rail & soften the drop & project out of the bottom turn. Accelerating where most guys were bogging down & not making the section.

    One of
    That board & it's single-fin predecessor, were my go to boards for a period of 4-5 years.
