My first 'new' new board for years







Theres a bit of a similarity in the mcCoy and this late 60s backyard UK board in outline - ok only a bit.



After years of buying 2nd hand boards I've just taken delivery of this lovely shiny Jack McCoy nugget. I've surfed single fins for ages and wanted something with the same volume and weight but with a different template and radically for me, 3 fins ! This board looks like it will fly and give a lot more control in the pocket so I can't wait ! Just like a single fin you have to get the weight on the tail to do a short arc turn. Luckily my local surfshop is the only one in the northern hemisphere ( so they say ) thats sells them. Its 6'8 x 21 x 3.
