Bob Hurley wrote to me about my Star Flight twin fin.
He tells me that "Larry Jackson and Bill Dinnie from Sunline started the Star Flight label for Lonnie Buhn, a great Huntington Beach surfer and surfboard maker." Bob says that he was "lucky enough to get the chance to help Lonnie out by shaping a few boards there and that those were really great times with really great people."
I was enjoying my 1978 Star Flight twin fin shaped by Larry Jackson recently when I was involved in an ugly incident with an angry kneeboarder that I happened to catch on film.
As I paddled for the peak with the intention of going right the handsome but sneaky cripple comes up on my right flapping and squawking.
As I get to my feet the devious trolley rider uses his rubber wheels to come up on me and grab my rail.
He flipped me off and I fall back in the foam.
