An instant twin fin, courtesy of a surf at 1st Carpark the other day….after replacement FCS plugs and re-glassing it will be as good as new again, or in my opinion better than before…onward and upward.
Its always exciting to see some old skateboards from the 60’s, here’s a Warwick deluxe bullet skateboard, me thinks circa 65…all original with a very cool rear break …these boards were made in Great Britain when it was called sidewalk surfing…
More action involving rocks and fins…old school fin resets are becoming less and less of a skill set due to the advent of fin plug systems and fin boxes…anyways we have the skill set to repair all sorts of fin disasters…mmm
It’s Rasta Pin lining time, pin lines are the joining sections of glass work and allow the eye to picture the boards outline. Pin lining like all facets of board making takes time and energy to get good at…mmm
A new Rasta 6.6 by 21 by 2 3/4 …Quadramania(five fin optioned) about to be pin lined…the beginning of the end. should be in the Rasta Emporium very soon.
Here’s Ilana and her new custom Rasta 66 log, made for those small days where glide and some walking is on the menu…looks like a fun ride.
Some 1980’s colour pop…the beaches were way brighter back then…and oh yeah hydrogen peroxide gave you an instant blonde do…
Pat Morgan was a 60’s / 70’s surfboard shaper/designer based in Torquay Victoria. The keel fin design was primarily his and noted surfers Wayne Lynch and Nat Young rode these designs during this period. The one pictured is Circa 71/72 and photo pic credit Vonweirdo. also at Vonweirdo’s.com.au
Ron Stoner, an iconic surf photographer from the 60’s captures this pic at Trestles where a surfboard is confiscated by a military officer. There were many rules and regulations about surfing in this area and there were tense times . When your board is persona non gratia…there’s trouble brewing. Photo Credit Stoner Circa 68/69
