A Nod to Dave, Stephanie and Andrew...

Falcone_ChannelBottomSingle1_2015

A Channel Bottom Single  Fin modeled after the board Stephanie Gilmore is riding in Andrew Kidmans book "Single". I was inspired to make this by the beautiful lines and hard pivoting turns that Stephanie carved on the wave face. It was made over the course of a few months, constantly going back and feeling up the original board shaped by the masterful hands of Dave Parmenter. I will definitely be ordering an original from Dave himself at some point but in the mean time I thought I'd take a crack at it. 

As a bonus this board along with a few others will be painted as part of collaborative for with my friend and epic painter Lance De Los Reyes. Stay tuned for more on the series we're working on.
