In a nutshell...

Words and Pictures is exactly that. Words in the form of a story and Pictures that either back up the story or form the basis of the story.
I love old surfboards, preferably single fins from the late 60's and early 70's, so many of the stories are based around these.

From time to time a classic board turns up with what seems to be a minor issue - it has no fin.
It's hard to find original fins from the late 60's and early 70's so I decided to try and make some myself. It takes time though and sanding fins is a huge pain. Cutting them out without mass production gear isn't exactly my idea of fun either.
Anyway, having old boards around means we have loads of fin templates also so I have traced as many as I have interest in and made copies of a few. There are still some awaiting the sanding process though and I just hope they turn out ok.
