At the same time Henry wrote to me from the UK with pics of two early 80's Energy thrusters from his collection.
|Very nice spray with unusual looking pulled in rounded pin tail.|
This one he found in Bristol.
I remember talking to Mike Newling in 1990 about how he and his brother surfed some of the biggest waves of their lives in the British Isles. Being only aware of the comps at Fistal, I was very skeptical at the time.
We now know that Britain and Ireland have some fantastic big wave spots. This board could well be one of Newling brothers pioneering UK big wave boards, as its what they would had with them and been riding at the time, and would explain the stress fractures you would get bouncing down the face of a 20ft Atlantic bomb.
