24" wide @ 3'1 3/4" from tail.
Nose 18"
Tail  17 3/4"
2 3/4" thick
The thickest point is 2' 4" from the tail.

Pretty wild fin.
The base is 11 1/2"
12" high.
10" from the pod.
With plenty of flex.

This is a 5'8" x 19" double flyer single fin
I restored almost 12 months ago. I neglected to it post back then.

Design by Cheyne.

This board was in need of some TLC.

As you can see, the tail has been neglected.
Apart from the tail the rest of the board was in fair condition.

The deck under the back foot had delaminated,
poorly repaired, and delaminated again.
A cardboard template was made to work out
the tail shape at 5'8"

New tail.

Re glossed and polished.
Finished ready to ride again.

   When I first saw the logo on this board from a distance
I thought it was a Norm Casey. 
It Turns out that Peter Clarke
took over the business from Norm Casey in 1965.

9'3 1/4"
Nose 17 5/8"
Tail 17 3/8"
22 7/8" wide @ 4' 5 5/8" from tail.
3 3/8" thick @ wide point.
Pod 8"

G.D 1351
On the deck
at tail. 

Cambered bottom almost V through 3' to 4 1/2' from tail.
The deck has a fair bit of camber also.
This board has spent most of its life in a shed.
It only had a few dings on the rails that needed repairing.
Sadly it is returning to the shed.

Stage 3 variant
Base 6 1/2"
11 1/4" high
6 1/2" from pod.
The tip protrudes past the pod by about 3"
