I write a lot of Instagram’d story’s but this one is special

I write a lot of Instagram’d story’s but this one is special … Terry Callahan @terrycallaghan1 who lives in San Francisco contacted me recently concerning the board in this photo which he had bought in the late 1970’s. He saw it for sale in the used board rack in the Lightning Bolt shop in Honolulu. He knew it was one of my personal boards that I had made & surfed during the Hawaiian winter in 1977. He has surfed it over the last 40 years but had decided that it was time to send it back to me. To offer to return it to me was an incredible act of generosity which I am I extremely grateful for. It’s so great to get it back, every time I look at it now I think of Terry & remembering how it happened brings a smile to my face. As well as shaping this one & doing the Color design on it I also glassed, sanded & did the gloss & polish finish on it. Ding repair magician Levi Jones did a minor restoration on it repairing some of the dings. @markrichardssurfboardsapparel @surfview @timdickson @pop_diddy @surfboardempire @throwingbuckets.com.au @timryan1959 @foam_riders @rhemagraphics @tracksmag @surfinglife @quiksilver @samueltgriffiths @anothery @limowall @sammygosling @mikypicon @mayhemsurfboards_mattbiolos @robin_prodanovich @dahlbergsurfboards @foam_riders @benny_big @yeahbranchy @surfer_magazine @coastalwatch @mynewcastle @asbmag @surfingworld @australianationalsurfingmuseum @johannesleak @mikereilly1 @cidoubleyou #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshaping #markrichardsshapes #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrsinglefin #mrretrosinglefin #mr1978retrosinglefinmodel #mr1978retrosinglefin #mr1978retro #mr1978retrosingle #mr1978hawaiiancontestquiver
