John Witzig took this photo of me in 1976 or 77 ? in Audrey Sutherland’s yard on the North Shore. This was my home away from home for around 10 winter seasons in Hawaii. The first 2 boards on the left are 6’8″ long Ben Aipa “Sting’s” & the next 2 were shaped by Dick Brewer. The air brush art on all of the boards was done by Al Dove who worked for Ben Aipa at the time. Ben was kind enough to let Al spray the Brewers for me. Al also did the air brushed image on the shirt I’m wearing. Larry Bertlemann had it on one of his boards & called it the “Water Wiggle”. ( It’s the spray on the second board ). The 3 boards on the left are now on display in Surfworld ( Australian National Surfing Museum ) in Torquay. @johnwitzig @bernie_baker1 @dick_brewer @aipasurf @dukeaipa @waikikibeachboys @andrewkidman @tapedoff @willynicholls_artist @search4shin @christianchapmanartist #benaipa #dickbrewer #dickbrewersurfboards @rawsonsurfboard @boardporn
