A bottom turn shot of me during the OP Pro at Huntington Beach in 1983

A bottom turn shot of me during the OP Pro at Huntington Beach in 1983. The board is a 6’2″ Twin Fin, 201/4″ wide & 23/4″ thick. The photo was taken by @tomservaisjr & published in @surfer_magazine in their event report. I’m wearing OP board shorts even though I was not sponsored by them. During this event while competing we had to wear the event sponsors product. If you refused then you were disqualified. There were quite a few events on the tour at the time where you had to compete in the sponsors shorts. The threat of disqualification meant no one challenged the ruling. In hindsight I wonder if one of the surfers had worn their personal sponsors shorts what would have happened, especially if it was someone in contention for the world title. #markrichardssurfboards #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1982retrotwinfinmodel #twinfinsrule #twinfinforever #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #mr1982retrotwinfin

Unveiling the rail spray I did yesterday outside in my home driveway

Unveiling the rail spray I did yesterday outside in my home driveway. The board is a 6’0″ 1980 Retro Pro Twin Fin model. Pulling the tape is the best part of doing sprays on boards. The paint is water based & the Color is called Arc Yellow but it came out light Orange. @quiksilver @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @mikypicon @stephenisbelly @cidoubleyou @mikereilly1 @yeahbranchy @boardriderscoolangatta @boardriders.capbreton @boardriderstorquay @boardridersmalibu @surfboardempire @fiberglasshawaii @markmonostewart2481 @tapedoff @christianchapmanartist @willynicholls_artist @search4shin @adrian_robert_turner #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardssprays #markrichardscolordesigns #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinforever #mr1980retrotwinfin #mr1980retrotwinfinmodel #mr1980retroprotwinfin #mr1980retroprotwinfinmodel

James Crawley’s custom 1980 Retro Pro Twin Fin model

James Crawley’s custom 1980 Retro Pro Twin Fin model. I know I’m totally biased & the spray is simple but I reckon it looks awesome. I’m frothing & it’s not even mine !! Mono did the spray & it is a repeat of a spray I did on one of my own boards back in the early 1980’s. @surfview @kakek_slime @markmonostewart2481 #markrichardssprays #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #mrtwinfin #mrretrotwinfin #mr1980retroprotwinfin #mr1980retroprotwinfinmodel #twinfinsrule #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #twinfinforever
