Michael wrote to me with pics of a board he found abandoned in a church equipment room. He was told to make it ‘disappear’. The board had been spray painted white all over, and after much elbow grease, revealed this lovely 1985 Triad Hawaiian Underground shaped by John Orlando.
Inspired by his find I was motived to bid on this early 80’s tri fin that has been painted blue. I know it’s a long shot, but the outline and tail looks remarkably similar to an early 80’s Energy thruster.
What do you think??
Uncle Keith has gone to pick it up for me so I’m yet to see it in the flesh.
How should I remove the house paint with damaging the fiberglass??
I havent seen the board yet but this is what I'm dreaming it looks like under the paint.
