This surfboard was shaped by Marlin Bacon. Marlin is a good shaper. He likes to make performance shortboards because he himself surfs good. He also made the fins. They are bamboo which are light and strong and have performance flex characteristics. Marlin’s fin company is called 101 Fin Co. He doesn’t promote his surfboard label at all. He is more of a behind the scenes kind of industry guy. We here at Surfy Surfy are big Marlin Bacon fans and encourage you all to ride his boards and fins. Thank you.
