Mark Richards says,
This is my “Bumble Bee” model. I shaped the first one of these in 1976. It was a twin fin & was inspired by a fish Reno Abellira rode in the Coca cola 2sm contest in Sydney. This board re- ignited my interest in twin fins & the next one I designed was the “Free Ride” twinny in 1977″
Shaped and glassed in California. Part of the Deluxe MR series at Surfy Surfy.
