strange tails

Whatever floats your boat - there are some wierd tail designs around from back in the day, all which seem to work to a degree. But as in the case of Fitz and Cheyne Horan when you're that damn talented you can ride just about anything and still be a class act. Above - one of the Mirandon brothers with twin pin. Below - rare 70s fish tail Lopez Bolt spotted on the boardcollector site.

  1. Just to to correct you Alisdair, that bearded fellow in your first picture, is in fact one of the Mirandon Brothers , famous for making those wild twin pins.

  2. ok cheers Steve I'll get that fact straightened out
