A 40 year old shot, taken in 1977 by Dan Merkel at Haleiwa in Hawaii

A 40 year old shot, taken in 1977 by Dan Merkel at Haleiwa in Hawaii. I’m riding a Twin Fin, 6’4″, 21″ wide, 27/8″ thick. It’s the multi coloured Twin Fin I was riding in the movie Free Ride. I still have this board & it holds special memories. It enabled me to go places on a wave that the design limitations of single fins would not allow. When I built it, it was incredibly light for the era, even though I glassed it in 6oz and did a resin gloss & polish finish. Picking it up now it actually feels really heavy, way heavier than a comparably sized stock surf shop board. @merkelmedia @shauntomson #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1978retrotwinfin #mr1978retrotwinfinmodel #mrfreeridemodel #mrfreerideretrotwinfin #mrfreerideretrotwinfinmodel #twinfinsforever #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit @quiksilver @slimes_surf_skate
