This design in the early stages had a “Morey Boogie Board” look with a square nose. Since Tom Morey had changed his name to “Y”, I thought it would be nice to honor him. It no longer looks like that, but the “Why” name stuck.
This shape has definite “Fish” undertones. The Why is a twin fin with a wide middle and tail giving it straighter curves in the rear portion of the outline. This causes it to have superior drive when laid down on a rail. And the wide tail gives great lift when dropping in.
