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.
