Diamond Tail Quads

I've been getting a lot of requests for diamond tail quads from folks who really like my round pin quads but wanted a bit more edge through to the tail. The diamond tail template extends parallel effective edge much like the template of a fish but without the reduced tail surface area of a swallowtail. This results in a bit more speed as there's more tail surface area. I've pulled in the template a bit compared to the fish template to make up for the added surface area, which makes for a more performance-oriented template.

5'11" x 19.5" x 2-3/8"
coke-bottle blue resin tint + polish
tapered basswood stringer
bamboo AK4 fins

Silence Surf Cases

Elias Reitz of Silence Cases makes a damn fine travel case for surfboards. These cases are hand-made to order and are ideal for traveling with glass-ons. The case pictured here can fit 2 fish with glass-on fins with room to pad everything down for the flight. It's recommended to pad the nose and tail of your boards, and there's room for wetsuits and towels for the remaining packing job.

It's approved for size and weight for most airlines, and we weighed one with two Mandala quad fish with glass-ons with padding at under 70lbs. (This case could probably fit three boards without glass-ons too.)

For pricing, interested parties can contact Elias at eliasreitz@hotmail.com.

I just got back from a Moonlight run this weekend to find out that the oil spill in the bay was larger than first anticipated. I'll try to take some photos today, but in the meantime here's a link to the Surfrider Foundation's website with more info:
