That was brilliant Steve, you're a wizard with the pen. Will you be taking it to the Mentawais?

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

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.

But seriously can you describe the bottom contours of the ghost a bit more.

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.

Yeah, so what pen range are we packing?
Fountain?
Artline?
Ballpoint of course.

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?
