|At Surfy Surfy on loan right now we have Patrick Leahy’s original Wayne Lynch Involvment surfboard circa ’67.
|Wayne Lynch carving it up during the Shortboard Revolution
|Early Wayne Lynch Involvment ad.
|The bottom is battle scarred. The board has been restored with a fresh hot coat and gloss, whomever did it wisely left the patina.
|Resin pinline. This nose template is still widely used today.
|Not sure if the resin leash loop is original or added later.
|These rock scars would explain why leashes became instantly popular.
|Fin systems have always been part of surfboard evolution.
|Great logo. Anyone know the original artist?
|This board was on display at the premiere of Jack McCoy’s new ambitious surf film A Deeper Shade of Blue at the Hawaiian Hilton Village in Waikiki on Feb 6th.
*special thanks to Patrick Leahy of West Wetsuits for sending me to Hawaii for the premiere screening. It was an honor and an incredible trip.
Check out A Deeper Shade of Blue for screenings in your area.
|*update: here is the fin which is still in Australia
