An often ignored but often useful place to find out about all the strange surfboard trips that Fineline Surfboards, Brian Hilbers and Kirk Putnam are up to.
Those look like they have more rocker than what you normally do, maybe a little closer to what they were doing with these back then. Is that just distortion from the camera?
Hiya; Some camera, some not: Nina's stick has adefinitely stronger, and better wave entry rocker than, say, the SOS. It's a thin board, and needs it. Flo's HG is just "stock" HG rocker- it has always had a deep entry nose rocker... Ask Flo- his 8'4 has the same nose trip. Both of these sleds are essentially tail-turners with a serious mid-board Buzz in the right part of the wave- this makes it a fine ride in slop, but when the Right place shows up, an exceptional ride- but it's still an emphasis on maximum pleasure on minimal wave quality. The best I can say, is that if wave quality improves, I haven't found a top-end for the boards, also. Thanks for asking, BJ
Sweeeet, thanks BJ for scoop on the HG!
