SF Fig. 4.2. (A) The quiver of a professional surfer, Evan Valiere. He models his quiver of high-performance short boards (from 5’10" tall) and longer boards (up to 10’5”). The longer ones, also known as “guns”, are made for catching large, outer reef waves (such as those that break at Waiamea Bay on Oahu, Hawaii). Notice also the variety of tail shapes, from blunt “squash”, to rounded pin, to v-shaped “fish” tails.
