The Retro Redfin
Size range: 9’0-10’6″
Description: One of our most progressive designs from the mid 60’s. Made famous and originally designed by former G&S teamrider/shaper, Mike Hynson of Endless Summer fame. The Retro Redfin is made for speed, powerful drawn out turns and is a time tested classic that has been ridden by some of the best surfers of that era. 50/50 rails fades into a 60/40 rail in the tail. Belly throughout the bottom for that fun vintage feel. Not too heavy, but heavy enough for a fun slide and glide feel.
Best for: A variety of conditions from knee high to overhead waves.
Features: Traditionally a Classic Triple Stringer “Red Fin” set up comes with 3 stringers (1/4″ center stringer+ two 5/8″ offset dark wood or redwood stringers), double 8oz volan + a 3/4 deck patch on top, and 8oz volan on bottom with a finpatch, a gloss and polish finish, and a single fin box with the fin or a Glass on fin.
Skill Level: Intermediate to expert
