Does anyone know where I could get a nice shaped single fin ala Wayne Lynch style…or better still how can I get hold of one of Lynchy's boards?? Just throwing it out there but yeah looking for quality and proven performance… any help would be cool, it seems that Wayne maybe doesn't do customs anymore??
No website I could find ? Wayne has a facebook page and im pretty sure Wayne would still be shaping custom boards.
Brutus will know.
Is that a tuflite ?
You could speak to Bruce at Anglesea Surf Centre if you want to confirm whether Wayne Lynch will do a custom. Bruce has had his boards in the past as Wayne just lives up the road but I see his house is up for sale
Plenty of other shapers have the ability to shape that magic single fin .... Simon Jones, Van Straalen, Chris Garrett, McTavish, Ed Sinnott etc etc
Is that a tepee on waynes block ?
Patagonia has boards with his name penciled on them, while your there pick up an overpriced wetsuit.
Yes Udu, not there anymore
I'm the scab you keep picking off and is there again the next day.
Give Mick Pierce a ring.
He shapes in Rye, Victoria.
His instagram page is @easternlight.
Shapes amazing singles, twins and guns. Martin Potter just got a new single fin made off him and took it to Jeffreys Bay when the comp was on recently, and was giving it great reviews..
Generally don't agree with goofy, for no logical reason but Mick pierce is very good......underrated
Greg Browne, he has the skills and also started out on singles.
John Jolly at Trigger bros lots of knowledge there.
Browney didn't start shaping singles though, probably shaped fuck all, what state pickles?

I have had close to a dozen of Pierceys' shapes under my feet in the last 10-15 years . He knows his stuff , and still rides them . None have been single fins though , but I know that he has designed , shaped and ridden as good as many in the last 40 years ....
Oh , and I've only ever snapped 2 of his boards , ( Tombies and P-Pass ) infact the board that eventually snapped at the latter , lasted 3 x 6-10 ft days at Palikir respectively, before " going to heaven " after falling directly onto it on a smaller day .... much to Alois's discust , ( I managed to snap his bushman and bent a JC ;-(( . ) , he eventually laughed when my " bullet proof " MP " gave way " at the end of the trip .
Considering my reckless approach and heavy footedness , his shapes are exceptional .
Still have 3 " magic boards " of his in my quiver amongst the other battered half dozen he shaped for me .
hit the man up ....
