stange tails part 2

Following on from the strange tails post from last week with the twin pin, here's a design Alex saw recently on the north shore made by Daniel Nichols.
' I met Daniel on the North Shore last year at Rocky point, he was surfing the red Bolt in the pics on the day we met and of course I was interested in the Lightning Bolt as you don't see many around, plus it was epoxy and very light. Daniel shaped for Bolt back in the 70s so I presume he can still use that logo on his boards, so it was interesting talking to him. Next day he was out in the water with his yellow fish with the fins on the tail, so I got a shot of it. Something Daniel had been playing with, he then sent me some shots of the next bunch he shaped.'


This set up looks pretty cool, shades of early 80s jet fins but with a whole lot more.
