Board images supplied with thanks by David, New Zealand January 2006, with the following questions..
Crozier - Friends brother bought it second hand in 1980 and been riding it ever since. Sold it to me this week. Amazing tail and fin set up. Never seen anything like them. Can you tell me what the idea is on the tail. Very long fin box Can you give me a rough idea on age and possible shaper.
Length 5'8 1/2"
My reply was the basis for this entry.
Probably 1973 to 1976 (given second hand in 1980).
Resin tint (not spray) as shown in the flex tail more common in early 1970's.
Hard to tell if the plug is post-production or damaged and badly repaired.
