A shot of me surfing Haleiwa in Hawaii, I’m guessing during the mid 1980’s. It was my favourite wave on the North Shore. My memory is a bit vague on this one. Here’s what I do remember, The board is a 6’4″ long Twin Fin that I shaped, sprayed & glassed. I made the fins by laminating 10 layers of fiberglass onto a piece of glass. Then I stuck a sheet of surfboard foam to it & popped the Fin panel off the glass. I shaped the Fin & then glassed the foam side. They weighed absolutely nothing but were a bit fragile. They dinged like a board if you hit something. The spray on the board was done with oil based car paint. I’m wearing @quiksilver board shorts. @mikypicon @cidoubleyou @mikereilly1 @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @anothery @yeahbranchy @boardriderstorquay @boardriderscoolangatta @boardridersericeira @boardriderscapbreton @fuzzy66 @boardridersmalibu @bernie_baker1 #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrtwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsforever #mrretrotwinfin #mr1980retrotwinfin #mr1980retrotwinfinmodel #mr1982retrotwinfin #mr1982retrotwinfinmodel
