I'm pleased to share with you pics from The Deus Surf Swap 10, featuring ‘Communing with Twin-Fins’ a surfboard exhibition presented by Electric showed and shined this past Sunday Oct 2nd at the Bondi Pavilion.
The event showcased 100+ vintage surfboards with a focus on Twin-Fin’s from around the country, alongside some of Australia’s best, cutting edge surfboard shapers who brought along their own contemporary version of the Twin-Fin design.
Shapers present included Hayden Shapes, Channel Islands, Morning of the Earth, Misfits, Vampirate, Gary McNeil, Daniel’s, Dead Kooks and FinBox’s representation of Neil Purchase Jr. and Mick Mackie Twins.
I idea of the twin fin theme was explore the current passion for modern twin fins and compare the old and the new and see if there were other design elements from the past that are worth re-visiting.
The team of expert appraisers got to work on some 'Antiques Roadshow' style appraisals where we discuss design, history, function, provenance, readability and them try and establish a current market value.
Designs were compared. Vintage verse the contemporary versions.
Old boards were admired
....it was more than twin fins, with a vintage skateboard display...
...and stall holders selling retro beach shack homewares and paraphernalia...
Andrew Kidman was there to do a screening of Litmus to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its release.
He even brought along the famous 'Dream Board' from lost in the ether.
