Graham Nile singlefins

 Here are a beautiful pair of Graham Nile singlefins from around 1973-75 . The swallow tail is 6'7 x 20 , and the pintail is 6'11 x 19 1/2. Graham was a good surfer and member of the British team, and he ran a surf shop and a bakery in St Austell, Cornwall. His boards are quite rare to find today, and were always of nice quality and good shape. It looks like both these boards were shaped by the same hand as the rail shapes are very similar, with volume far out to the rail . I already know the pintail was shaped by John Hall for Steve Daniel, so the other board could well be by John too. John also shaped for his own label and Tiki.
