    Yes, as I recall the pop outs all looked like that.

    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I spotted that too, and your comment was way funnier than whatever I was going to toss out there.

    Looks very similar to this board: the blue, the fin. I bet that wider stringer is fake, maybe the skinnier stringer too. Is the board heavy, mine was. Looks like a pop out; probably is. Mine paddled like a battleship, and when it got moving it caught pretty much any thing. I had to turn mine only from the tail, noseriding was tough but not impossible. Steep waves might not be your friend with that board. I got raked over the coals on swaylocks for buying a 'popout' but I learned a lot and eventually traded it for cash/board. Enjoy. PS. I didn't add the fin plug and it originally didn't have one at all.

    Thanks for the info. Yes, this has some weight to it, not a tank but there is some momentum here. Purchased specifically for down the line small, clean days when it's crowded and I don't want to worry about getting dings on my pretty boards. ;)

    That was my knee jerk reaction too. It has the look of a popout which some actually were done pretty well. As a little gremmie before I owned my own surfboard, my brother's friend had a "Ten Toes" which I believe also made "Shark" & "Tiki". Might have been "Parkway" as the parent company? I thought they also made "Duke Kahanamoku" but I might be wrong. The Ten Toes had a weird rocker up front, I'd swear it was slightly negative (!?!!) but it rode the nose well @ Campus Cove...

    Parkway made diving wet suits which we used to surf in. They were, I believe, headquartered in Perth Amboy, NJ not far from where I lived as a boy. They didn't do boards that I am aware of, but it is certainly possible.

    Took her out yesterday. Yes, turn from the tale only. It took me about 5 waves to figure it out, however I was able to catch a few 3' clean waves and she locked in nice. Was definitely taking on water so I'll have to do some further fixes but definitely a fun board for crowded days.

    Yes, overlapped glass and extra cloth around fin. Good eye.

    "overlapped glass and extra cloth around fin"

    Well, not a "pop out" as we knew them here in Florida. Most, if not all, of the pop-outs we had were molded. Crappy instantly turn yellow foam, put in a mold and covered with a layer, or two, of mat. No "glass", just mat. The rails were not lapped. In many cases, you had to sand down the rails a bit where the sharp mold flashing was left.
