A 40 or 41 year old shot of me at Haleiwa in December 1979 or 1980 ? during the World Cup event. During the late 1970’s & early 80’s the World Cup was the final event of the IPS World Tour & it usually decided the world champ race. There were some Sunset Beach World Cups but at this time Haleiwa was the preferred location. I’m riding a 7’4″ Round Pin Single Fin which I made from start to finish from a Clark Blank, shaping, spraying, glassing, sanding, gloss & polishing it. Subtle flat panel Vee bottom in the back 2/3 of the board with a tucked under hard resin edge which ran from nose to tail. The last 3 photos are of the board which I still have. The spray paint was from @fiberglasshawaii Surf shot Photo.
