A shot of me taken 43 years ago in 1977 at Off The Wall on the North Shore. The board is a 7’8″ long Lightning Bolt wing pin Single Fin & it was shaped by Reno Abellira. The Black leg rope was one of the early generation “leggies” consisting of a length of Surgical tubing containing a longer length of Nylon string inside it. They would only stretch to the length of the string then either of 2 things would happen in a wipeout. It would feel like it was trying to rip your leg off OR the tail of the board would come flying back at you dangerously fast. This was before Rail Savers were invented so sometimes the tubing & cord would tear right through the rail to the plug. Photo, Laurie McGinness. I first saw it @silversurfer0161 The shorts were my second pair of Quiksilver’s with scallop legs. @quiksilver @mikypicon @fuzzy66 @cidoubleyou @mikereilly1 @anothery @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @renoabellira #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #markrichardssurfboards #mrsinglefin #mrretrosinglefin #mr1976retrobustindownthedoor #mr1976retrobustindownthedoormodel #mr1976retrosinglefin #mr1976retrosinglefinmodel #mr1976bustindownthedoor
