I'm pretty sure I saw the shaper of those boards back in 2018 at Oxnard Shores. Didn't get a chance to speak to him though has he suddenly disappeared since I was down the beach a bit. He has a couple boards in Ventura surf shop last time I was up there in December. They've been sitting there since 2019 the last time we had a gathering. Pretty heavy boards I would guess 20lb.

I've kind of wondered about those groin bumps. The shaper has been selling these paipo-style Greenough spoon boards for awhile, hence the weight from all the glass & resin. I think the bumps are for hand holds during wave catching. They the rider scoots up and holds onto the nose rail handles. Agree, that seems like a ton of fin!

"Channel Islands-Inspired twinnies." so which CI has a massive center fin on their twin! the 3 fin twin! lol

i'm always so intrigued to see these surfed wondering if they have made something super complicated that they just got straight down the line on.

Those groin bumps must be a lot softer than they appear and maybe a lot shorter than they appear. I would not want to wipe-out tangled with all that fin but to each our own. The gentleman has found something that works well for him, apparently sells a few and is staying wet in his later-in-life days. The production rate probably has to do more with the layup of all that glass--spoons are a manpower intensive project.
