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
