A 42’year old shot of me at “Off The Wall” in 1978 on my 6’4″

A 42’year old shot of me at “Off The Wall” in 1978 on 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. There were two of them.

“Off The Wall” in 1978 on my 6’4″ Twin Fin 42 years ago

“Off The Wall” in 1978 on my 6’4″ Twin Fin 42 years ago. 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 me now.

The leg length looks super short compared to today’s board shorts. I shaped, sprayed & glassed this board.

A shot from 1978 at “Off The Wall” in Hawaii

A shot from 1978 at “Off The Wall” in Hawaii. The board is the 6’4″, 21″ wide, 27/8″ thick Free Ride Twin Fin. The stance ?? Well, I was influenced by South African Shaun Tomson’s tube riding style. He was going mad at OTW getting long deep tube rides with a forward stance where he was continually making adjustments to his line to follow the contours of the tube. At the time it was revolutionary as tube riding was usually based on setting a line after the bottom turn & hoping it was correct to get you in & out of the barrel. I have no idea if I managed to get some pressure on the inside rail to alter my line ? By the looks of it I’m about a second away from wearing the lip on my head.

My Free models displayed using Spectre Ghost Racks

My Free models displayed using Spectre Ghost Racks. One board is the original from 1978 & one is an unridden Replica. In the first two photos of the original you can see the price of old dirty string still in the leg rope plug. This is the same piece that has been there for 41 years since 1978. My son Kyle installed the racks. @kylerichards1 @ghost.racks #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #twinfinsforever #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinsrule #mr1978retrotwinfin #mr1978retrotwinfinmodel #mrfreeridemodel #mrfreeridetwinfinmodel #mrfreerideretrotwinfinmodel #mrfreeridetwinfin #mrfreerideretrotwinfin

Photos of my son Kyle putting up some “Spectre” Ghost Racks to display some boards

Photos of my son Kyle putting up some “Spectre” Ghost Racks to display some boards horizontally. I didn’t do anything except for lifting the boards into place when he was finished. Kyle did all the measuring, spacing & installing of the brackets. Unless I’m dealing with surfboard foam I’m kinda useless. @ghost.racks @kylerichards1 @luisrealcollection #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrfreeridemodel #mrfreeridetwinfinmodel #mrfreerideretrotwinfinmodel #mrfreeridetwinfin #mrfreerideretrotwinfin #mr1978retrosinglefin #mr1978retrosinglefinmodel #mr1978hawaiiancontestquiver
