8' 6" Pintail Funboard
This funboard is just that - FUN!  Its
kind of a longboard that wants to be
a  shortboard - and it loves a nice
medium-size swells.

The classic pintail has low drag for
speed but its easy to keep under
control.  A single fin works great but
you can install three, four, or even five
fins.  Its as agile as a short board but
you can get to the nose too. And the
modern rail profile seals the deal.

Its best for riders up to 190 lbs. but
heavier riders are OK depending on
your experience level.

Full size templates printed
out on a regular ink jet or
laser printer.
The full-size rib and spar
templates show the ribs
with rounded ends. These
rounded ends make
getting the correct rail
profile foolproof.

On the right we decided to
make solid rails so the rib
ends were cut off and rail
strips added.  The book
shows all the details.
