Designs Have Changed

Underneath a surfboard there are fins made of fiberglass. In the 80's there was usually only one big fin that looked like these. Today, most boards have three fins which are smaller than the ones on display at this art show at Andy Spade's gallery/office.
These fins are like the rudder on a boat. When a surfer presses into the wave with his back foot, he can direct the board wherever
he wants to go. Hopefully, he'll be heading into the "Green Room".
