A shot of me from 1976 surfing in Newcastle , I’m riding a 5’10, 213/4″

A shot of me from 1976 surfing in Newcastle , I’m riding a 5’10, 213/4″ wide & 27/8″ thick Round Nose Twin Fin. It had an 181/2″ wide nose with a wing swallow tail which was 9″ wide. It became known as the “Bumble Bee” Twin Fin due to the massive Bee I’d airbrushed on the bottom. It’s the first Twin Fin I made for myself & It was inspired by the Twin Fin Fish that Reno Abellira rode in the 2SM -Coca Cola Surfabout at Narrarbeen that year. The bottom has a subtle Vee & there is a deep concave flute shaped into the wings.

A 1976 Retro “Bumble Bee” model

A 1976 Retro “Bumble Bee” model. It’s 5’6″ long, 211/2″ wide & 25/8″ thick. This model, shape & color design replicates the first Twin Fin I made for myself in 1976. It was inspired by the Fish like Twin Fin that Reno Abellira rode in the 2SM -Coca Cola Surfabout at Narrarbeen that year. The bottom has a subtle Vee & there is a deep concave flute shaped into the wings. Mono recreated the original spray. The big Bee was printed on decal tissue by Rhema Graphics. On the original board in 1976 I sprayed the Bee with an air brush. This board is now in Japan, imported by Soeda Surfboard Japan.

Peter St Pierre spraying a black foil- arc on a 1976 Retro Bumble Bee model

Peter St Pierre spraying a black foil- arc on a 1976 Retro Bumble Bee model at Moonlight Glassing in California. Its being sprayed on top of the sanded glass coat. Most sprays are done on the foam but for certain designs you can get greater detail, more vibrant colors and cleaner edges by spraying on the glass. The solid yellow is on the foam. @surfysurfy #moonlightchristensonfactory @tapedoff @mayhemb3_mattbiolos @lostsurfboards @catalystsanclemente #markrichardssurfboards #mr1976retrobumblebeemodel #mr1976retrobumblebee #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin

The deck of the 1976 Retro Bumble Bee that I posted this morning

The deck of the 1976 Retro Bumble Bee that I posted this morning. ( text is the same as previous post ). This model is currently in Slimes Surf & Skate, King Street, Newcastle. This is a replica of the first Twin Fin I shaped for myself in 1976. ( I posted photos & history about the original board yesterday ). This one is 5’11” long, 213/4″ wide & 23/4″ thick. The colors have been replicated too. On the original board I did the red & green spray. Mono did the colors on this one & it was glassed by the team at Professional Surfboard Manufacturing in Byron Bay. @slimes_surf_skate @kakek_slime @markmonostewart2481 @pearljam @drippingwetsurfshop #mr1976retrobumblebeemodel #mr1976retrobumblebee #mrretrotwinfin #mrtwinfin #markrichardssurfboards #psmglassing
