The Leroy Ah Choy Model ...
It combined a pulled-in Hawaiian pintail with a wide backed Australian V bottom. The result was a slightly wider (by Hawaiian mini-gun standards) tri-plane tail.
The color scheme of the board shown above makes the tri-plane shape obvious. The yellow area in the tail is flat, while the green area has a beveled V.
This particular board is 7'6'' long and 22" wide.
Leroy was a long time beach boy in Waikiki, and along with his father and brother, is credited with developing the SUP.
