Moving house the other day packing boxes I came across a jar full of biros in the back of a bookcase right down on the bottom shelf. Funny my son can never find a pen when it's homework time. Anyway for sure we will have pens galore on this trip don't worry about that, I'm going full quiver and then some.

Pyzel is a fan of matching the stringer rocker as closely to the rail rocker as he can manage, he has a lot of faith in his boards' natural lines after many years of Pipe, Sunset etc. You get that with a lot of the good Hawaii shapers, Arakawa, Bushman, Rawson etc, rocker beats bottom shape.

Long smooth, low, unbroken rocker curve extending back from front foot
V subtle but distinctive. I see it as being similar to the rocker curve on my 9 ft Brewer

It's seems subtle bottom contours are a feature of a good modern surfboard.

Just make sure no one has looked up and been inspired by the (v NSFW) /r/buttsharpie reddit forum before the trip.

I'm fixing up a pretty nice 7'6" pintail thing, I've had it for years and years and only really now after about 10 years surfing down here I've come to the point where I might, might think about using it every now and then.

Anyway, I've put whatever FCS fins in (and yeah Braithy I agree the Futures system is brilliant!) from some stock stick I can find and they look piteously small. What's the word on fin size with a bigger board like this? Big waves equals big balls and fins?

small tail area needs smaller Fins
