fin for box

custom fin
7 1/2", rigid, 7/16 max thickness tapered out to tip (so the part that will be inserted in the box is thinner), 20/80 foil, rounded edge, I keep the rake º for myself (I have very good feedback with this shape in 8 1/2 and 9" in longboards; so will see with this size)

-custom Silver jewel + inox hardware + breaksaving plate to proper fit the fin with style
-20 oz volan/4 oz silane to lam the panel
-pigment, polyester tint, fabric, India ink were involved to make the art/color work
