im pulling the trigger on yet another Pieter board, this time hid 50's Pig. It come std with a 2" balsa stringer and the big hand made D fin. I really want this one to pop so tell me what you think of these ideas.
The Texas flag fin he can do in a southern cross if i want. Ive always wanted a red and black board but i dont want to compromise the look of that balsa stringer

I love the first board too. But Pete says he can do a Eureka flag or Southern cross on the fin, then maybe go with that deep blue for inserts instead of white? Or keep the white and just get a deep blue pin line either side of the 2" stringer?

So i ended up going similar to this one, with a southern cross on the fin instead of the Texas flag. 2" balsa and cedar stringer with cream resin panels instead of white. He does all his pigs with a hole in the back of the fin for the leash. 2 x 6oz on deck, 1 x 6oz Volan. 10' x 23 3/4 x 3 1/4 all on midgets orange foam. Also true to the 50's style the finish coat is left un sanded, just a light rub on the bead round the edge.
The one in the photo went to Carolina in the US.
