Tiger Toe 2
25 ~ May 2013
Tiger Toe 2 was made after Tom Curren spent two weeks with me working on the film Spirit of Akasha. Tom wanted to shape a board for the project (Tiger Toe 1). Tom believes there’s no reason why a single fin can’t be the fastest board one can ride. Tiger Toe 1 was a single fin. Tom loved Tiger Toe 1 so much he took it home with him to California and began building a shaping bay at his house so he could make more of them. Tiger Toe 2 was shaped shortly after he left, I customised it for myself, making it slightly longer and thicker, it works best in 2-3 foot hollow waves and down the line point breaks. Michele Lockwood did the Tiger artwork on the deck and I painted the Tiger Toe on the bottom. Tiger Toe 2 is 5’11 x 18 5/8 x 2 1/2. It has roll in the front that runs into panel vee with a single concave in each vee panel that runs out the tail. Pinched box rail with bottom edge.
