|Dolphin fan Ilan and brother Tito|
I shaped this 9-6 Neo Single-fin for Miami Dolphin Fan Ilan. Boards dimensions are 9-6 18-3/4″ x 23″ x 15-3/8″ 3″. Board has typical Neo features: half-length, blended nose concave, moderate “V” in tail and eggy, 60/40 rails.
The two 1/8″ cedar stringers can be seen clearly through the tourqoise and orange resin tint glass job (by Ray Lucke). A clear True Ames “Slick” model center fin finishes off this noseriding beauty.
Ilan was able to watch the entire shaping process from raw blank to finished shape.
