Although we designed it as a retro single fin, our customers have been riding this shape as their step-up board, as their board for when the juice turns on. It will get you out the back easier, it will get you into waves earlier, and was designed for speed, speed, and more speed. In other words, our goal is for you to make long fast waves. Riding a flex tip in the single fin-box, you will only feel drive, flow, and carry until you shift your weight back, drop your front hand into the water, and crank into a long fast cutback. You'll be enjoying yourself until you realize that you just came out of the turn as fast as you went in!
Like all 42 Surfboards, you will will notice how your Single Fin builds and holds speed. With the low rocker and single concave bottom, this board will be among the fastest in the water in anything from chest high to double overhead plus. With the 100% organic core, an illustrious Resin Research crystal clear epoxy finish, and heart-stopping abalone inlays, your Single Fin is certain to be the most beautiful board on the beach.
Here at 42 Surfboards, we are American surfers shaping wood surfboards. That's all we do. We’d like to shape you a board that is beautiful, unique, and is more than something you just surf on. Although we know that you will love surfing it.
42 Surfboards are hand-shaped from blanks that we build ourselves. Our blanks are as organic as they come and at 42, your surfboard blank isn’t going to kill anyone. Our blanks are built from sustainably harvested local wood and are chambered as radically as any in history. This gives you a remarkably beautiful surfboard.
Everybody has had a magic surfboard. This one could have been yours!
