Shaped by Terry Bishop (snake) and glassed by Mick Carabine. Micks glass work is spectacular! What can I say, you really need to see and feel the quality of his work to understand how beautiful his boards are. Unfortunately Mick Carabine does not have a website where examples of his boards can be found. If you like longboards and are passing through Wollongong, be sure to drop in to have a chat.

Phil  Way from Fluid Foils stated that there fins "are hand foiled from a panel of fibre glass. They are individually marked out and cut to shape then the foil of the fin is sanded into shape using a couple of different sanders and various types of sandpaper. This is all done by hand and eye so each fin is completely hand crafted to create a controlled flex and responsive fin to help lift the performance of your surfboard".
