Local ripper and soul cat Spencer has been riding this mysto vintage twin fin for years. When it finally died, he enlisted guru craftsman Terry Martin to shape him a new one,
It was a loving recreation with airbrush and all,
Big double bump pintail,
Spencer opted to have the intricate airbrush on the bottom of the new board where it wouldn’t get covered in dirty wax,
The original airbrush painted by unknown,
The new replica airbrush by Peter St Pierre (lots and lots of tape was involved),
The original board and the mysterious JA airbrushed center logo,
Close up of the new airbrush,
The original wished for love and got it,
Glass-on Turbo fins, how about that?
Original shaper unknown, so if you know who made this board please leave a comment.
These kind of projects are one of the best things about surfboard building.
*Spencer and his Dad are the new proprietors of Mozy Cafe in Leucadia so stop in for a smoothie and organic burrito next time you are cruising the coast highway.
