The finalists in the 1975 Smirnoff Pro at Waimea Bay in Hawaii -

The finalists in the 1975 Smirnoff Pro at Waimea Bay in Hawaii. Wayne Rabbit Bartholomew, Ian Cairns, Jeff Hakman, Shaun Tomson, Me & Reno Abellira. Bugs, Ian, Shaun & I were all riding boards shaped by Tom Parrish. Hakman’s board was either a Parrish or a Brewer ?. Reno was riding one of his own shapes. My board was a Round Pin Single Fin. 8’6″ long, Red tint bottom, Yellow tint deck. I don’t own it anymore, it’s now owned by a vintage board collector in the US who bought it at Randy Rarick’s Hawaiian Vintage surfboard auction many years ago. All the boards in the photo were Lightning Bolt Single Fins. I saw this photo on @peoplewhosurfshow & was a little confused by the photo credits but I think it was Peter Townend ?? I’m wearing my very first pair of @quiksilver board shorts, the pink & red ones. @tomparrishhawaiiandesigns @mikypicon @anothery @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @yeahbranchy @limowall @mikereilly1 @fuzzy66 @rabbitbartholomew @iancairns @jeff_hakman @shauntomson @renoabellira @bernie_baker1 @luisrealcollection @boardriderscoolangatta @boardriderstorquay @boardridersericeira @boardriderscapbreton #tomparrishhawaiiandesigns
