The 6’0 single fin is back and more bad ass than ever. Most retro single fins you find laying around underneath the house or in dad’s garage are more often than not, big, brown and heavily water logged. This is due to one: their age, two: the half assed home repair job, and three: single fins live on forever!
We’ve come along way in design since then and this is a product of the how far we’ve come. The 6’0 is shorter, rails more refined and is trimmed closer to the specs of your regular surf board. We have the 8’0 there for the soul surfers but this board is specifically tailored to core surfing with a more technical approach then what you’d get from the 8’0.
Riding a single fin is like therapy. It’s like a remedial massage for your style and the way you read the wave. Surfing the typical high performance board can teach us bad habits that we don’t even realise are happening. It’s not until you take a step back can you really take two steps forward.
It relax’s your mind set and simplify’s the thought process and you ask yourself ‘what’s the most I can get out of this board?’
You have to get low, and squeeze as much drive out of your turns as possible, you use the curve of the wave face with the rail, or the fin, (or all three!) to generate your speed and flow. Without even realising it you’re perfecting (or re-perfecting) the core of where the best surfing comes from.
Whether or not your a soul surfer that loves the simple things in life or whether your looking to fine tune your surfing, a single fin is essential to any surfer’s quiver. Do yourself a favour.
