A shot of me taken 41 years ago during the Offshore Pipeline Masters in 1978

A shot of me taken 41 years ago during the Offshore Pipeline Masters in 1978. The board is a 7’0″ round pin single fin that I shaped which I still have. There was a 7’4″ version too, same shape with identical colors. I shaped, sprayed & glassed both from Clark Blanks in Newcastle prior to going to Hawaii. During heats at this event as well as wearing coloured contest singlets with the sponsors logos we also had to wear the event sponsors board shorts. In this era quite a few event sponsors on the tour made you wear their shorts regardless of who you were sponsored by. Imagine trying to make the competitors on the @wsl tour now wear shorts other than own during events. The second photo is of my son Kyle mounting the board on the wall with Ghost Racks @ghost.racks @kylerichards1 Surfing Photo, Lance Trout @thelostandfoundcollection @markrichardssurfboardsapparel @surfboardempire @bernie_baker1 @slimesboardstore #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrsinglefin #mrretrosinglefin #mr1978retrosinglefin #mr1978retrosinglefinmodel #mr1978retrosingle #mr1978retro #mr1978hawaiiancontestquiver
