2010. southern california. my wife and i, along with sheriff, our then, only child, happened upon a vintage car show/meet at the beach, i believe in encinitas. quickly wowed by the automobiles, and their owners, it was pretty safe to say that a lot of the collectors were surfers, or that they really dug putting the vintage spin at the the beach. lots of beautiful boards. and with those boards are lots of beautiful hand made fins from the mid to late 50’s and beyond. something old.
