I've got stoked the first time I saw this fin template. They remind me of a whale's tail because it's organic lines . The fins were designed by Tyler and hand foiled by Daniel Partch.

Danny hand-constructs is surfboards from sustainably harvested poplar, cork, and amapola, with a durable+reciclable EPS foam core laminated with less toxic epoxy resin. This designs are a step toward a "green" more durable surfboard .
He starts building a perimeter frame made out of layered poplar and cork engineered to control the desired amount of flex. The frame will avoid twisting providing a good feeling when fully committing the rail into turns.
After the frame is constructed, rockered and foiled an EPS core is insert within the structure for bottom and deck contours. To finish it receives an outside wood skin finished with a single 4-ounce s-glass fiberglass.
This custom shape it's a Pacheco 5'-8'' x 20.325" x 2.25" shaped by Danny Hess, photos by Nuno
In the end every board is one of it's kind, do to the unique organic wood grain patterns. That is kinda cool!

This beautiful Mandala was shaped by Manuel Caro in San Francisco. He drove the blank 500 miles down to Moonbase in San Marcos.
After the glassing it went back to San Francisco and crossed the American continent to New York City. Then flew with me over the Atlantic Ocean to Lisbon to finally arrive at my brother’s feet… 9000 miles away.
5'10" double-wing quad fish 20.25' x 2-3/8", polished resin tint.
The board is used mint condition one repair right side wing, detailed photos upon request.
490 Euros, includes any Lokbox new fin set of your choice. The surfboard is located at Lisbon.
This sled is fast and super maneuverable. Where is it going next?
