42 years ago watching "Off The Wall" in 1978 holding my 6'4" Twin Fin -

42 years ago watching “Off The Wall” in 1978 holding my 6’4″ Twin Fin. This one became known as the “Free Ride” model. It’s the board I was riding in some of the “Off the Wall” North Shore sequences in Bill Delaneys movie Free Ride. Dimensions were 21″ wide & 27/8″ thick. So stoked I still have the original boards. The shorts were a favourite pair of @quiksilver scallop legs that I wore for the whole Hawaiian season & the Australian summer. Custom made in Torquay with me picking the colors. Black Yoke, Yellow font & back with red sides. I don’t have them any more but wish I did even though there is no way they would fit my fat arse now.
