The first board I was ever given was a single fin pocket rocket. its about 6'2 x 18 5/8 x 2 3/8 with the wide point very up front and an extremely pulled in tail. Its a very retro board but has modern bottom contours, the overall rocker is flat with a bit of tail kick and it has a flat bottom until about mid way through where it turns into a heavy double concave, nothing potato like but still a good one. This board absolutely flies, fastest board I have ever ridden without a doubt.
I was wondering if anything similar has ever been discussed to be built for FW? I realized that FW, while offering tons of different shapes and sizes with excellent user friendly reference points for anyone looking to buy one, has stayed away from retro kind of board. For the most part they are hybrids and short boards, there are the 3 fishes but I would love to see something like what was mentioned above come out in FST.
I couldn't even imagine how amazing a single fin in FST would feel, with excellent flex and the unmatched speed of a single fin the board would be insane! maybe its something to consider, even if most of them sold only through orders, it would still be variety and I will tell you right now that if you cant get barreled on a board with those dims, than you just cant get barreled. The whole nature of a single fin seems to simply find the tube by itself, got the best barrel of my life on that board and after I get her fixed up and back from the grave I hope to get more!
