This photo was taken in 1976 at “Off The Wall” in Hawaii. The Quiksilver shorts were my very first pair & were custom made. Quiksilver founders Alan Green & John Law let me pick the colors for them. ( Not sure what I was thinking with my color choice, maybe not thinking !!! ). They did not charge me for them, I was so stoked, a free pair of shorts, sponsored !!! I do remember how comfortable they were to surf in with the scallop leg compared to what I’d worn previously. I didn’t keep them, wish I had, even though I wouldn’t be able to fit my enlarged behind into them now !!. The Lightning Bolt single fin was one of two shaped for me by Reno Abellira. Both the same Color. ( 7’8″ & 8’0″, I’m riding the 7’8″.). I’m guessing Dan Merkel took the photo ? @merkelmedia @renoabellira @rudyland @quiksilver @rcastro02 @samueltgriffiths @benny_big @yeahbranchy @fuzzy66 @mikypicon @sammygosling @stephenisbelly @cidoubleyou @mikereilly1 @boardridersericeira @boardridersmalibu @boardriderstorquay @boardriderscoolangatta @boardriders.capbreton #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #mrsinglefin #mrretrosinglefin #mrbustindownthedoor #mr1976bustindownthedoor #mr1976retrobustindownthedoormodel @euroglass
