  • Length: 7'6"
  • Fin: Single Box Fin

Lime green resin tint with dark green and black resin swirls. This board speaks for itself. Custom double stringer shaped to perfectly intersect each of the points of the swallow tail. Double grape thick and thin pinstripe accenting the big grape single box fin. No detail has been overlooked. Light tan-green resin tint deck treatment really gives the look of a 70's retro board finished off with a super shiny gloss coat.

The reality is that Mike Minchinton grew up shaping these boards early in his career. There was no need to learn the art from someone else! This is the real deal, not just an attempt to duplicate a retro board from an era when the boards first got shorter and the designs were focused on hard turns, heavy carves and deep tube rides.
