A bottom turn shot of me during the OP Pro at Huntington Beach in 1983

A bottom turn shot of me during the OP Pro at Huntington Beach in 1983. The board is a 6’2″ Twin Fin, 201/4″ wide & 23/4″ thick. The photo was taken by @tomservaisjr & published in @surfer_magazine in their event report. I’m wearing OP board shorts even though I was not sponsored by them. During this event while competing we had to wear the event sponsors product. If you refused then you were disqualified. There were quite a few events on the tour at the time where you had to compete in the sponsors shorts. The threat of disqualification meant no one challenged the ruling. In hindsight I wonder if one of the surfers had worn their personal sponsors shorts what would have happened, especially if it was someone in contention for the world title. #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1982retrotwinfinmodel #twinfinsrule #twinfinforever #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #mr1982retrotwinfin
