The Board Room - Wednesday - The Board Edition





Even though I don't really surf them on a regular basis
I do like to browse me some surfboards!

It's more the historical and evolutionary aspects I enjoy
With a collection like this you can see things
change

For example
when boards were first cut down in length
shapers kept the same belly and rails,
down rails came along later.
Extreme pin tails were the rage for a while
along with extreme V in the tail

Sometimes the tails were just THICK
and the roll of rocker (pardon the pun)
in getting these boards to turn
was yet to be discovered.
