The idea for the B68 was inspired and brought to life by my good friend Andy Cowell, drawing inspiration from Bob McTavish. As a regular enthusiast for single fins, and boards that drive and perform, he came to me with this shape in mind. I continually get feedback from him saying how great the board is working, whether its over head surf or small little runners. There’s certainly something special about this board. It seems to gather all the energy from the wave and perform with the utmost fluidity. Being in positions on the wave where I am thinking, “I can’t make this.” or “I’m going to dig the nose.” The B68 seems to pull through with total style and grace. Featuring moderately foiled rails, slight rolled entry, to flat, into spiral vee, and a foiled hard edge off the tail. A midrange single fin that performs, and certainly makes the most of every wave.
This was my daily driver for a long time as I moved up to the Ventura area. I only had a couple boards with me, and this guy showed me a good time whether it was knee high or over-head.
