The very first winger, a 6’10” round-tail flyer, was launched in the summer of 1972. That board provided the template for the swallow version and solid power carving beast of TF’s early quivers.
To that basic round-tail a pinched wing in the rail was added reflecting a stumpy kneeboard with glass fins in the rails, ridden by Bunker Spreckles in the Kauai summer of 1971. Terry worked the idea into foam, refining rails and pushing overall foil forward for projection.
The wing concept was introduced through his quiver with the round-tail converted to a swallow. The single/double concave and wing straightened plan shape are all about speed and the truest of single fin feel.
