Last month I had the chance to interview legendary surfer and shaper, Pat Taylor (click here to see the interview). While interviewing Pat last month, he had a special personal project, The Black Pin-Tail.

After 4 weeks, Pat was able to complete it. Flawless. Bad ass. Just a few words to describe it.

It’s a special notch, like pulling out a number 4 wood for hitting a long haul.

Specifications

Style: Classic/Modern California Pintail

Size: 7’4″

Width: 21.5″

Thickness: 3″

Material: Polyurethane

Setup: Thruster

Pat’s Black Pintail is great for high quality ground swell waves in Northern California. It will do well surfing at least overhead waves (5ft) and isn’t as “gunny” (see Surf Science definition of Big Gun Surfboard here). It has strong paddle power and allows surfers to ride head on into swell.

How would you describe this surfboard in one sentence?

It’s a special notch, like pulling out a number 4 wood for hitting a long haul.

“It’s a special surfboard. When the day comes and you get to use it, you get a real great feeling and an awesome looking board.”

This custom board reminds me of the “Dark Side”. I could totally see Darth Vader ripping some quality waves with this bad boy. If you’re interested in getting a custom made surfboard from Pat Taylor feel free to reach out.
