Shapes and Hulls

Found this gem on Swaylocks, A new Tim Bowler flextail! , I looked close at the foil on that fin and it's just like the one on the flextail Tim made me 36 yrs ago in the last post.



Tim was always his best test rider, one of the most talented surfers I ever got to shared the water with and a great craftsman.




With influence from Liddle, Greenough, Yater, Bradbury and more he always had his own shaping style, very cool to see some of his new work and really weird for it to pop up after that last post.
