Gordon and Smith Retro RedFin

Manufacturer Description
The Retro RedFin was our most progressive design back in the mid 60's. Made famous by Mike Hynson. it's been replicated for today's longboarder who wants the best of the "Old School". 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 and cruisy glide. This board comes with 3 stringers (1/4" + two 5/8" cedar 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.

I have a 10'0" Retro RedFin. It really lights up with a little extra swell size. Smooth turns, nice glide, great paddling. I have had many waves that looked unmakeable, but I zoomed right through the section on this board -- it really kicks into 5th gear when you step up to trim.

Have owned a Retro RedFin since 1996. Continue to enjoy it and find it to be very responsive in medium to steep walls. Wouldn't part with mine.

9'8" custom made...I'm the 3rd owner. It's a pintail...just took it out for first ride...it's a keeper. Solid.
