Blue Magazine Japan. Twin Fin issue.

 

Mostly I feel that my banging away on the internet about my passion for vintage surfboards 1978-1983 or more specifically, vintage twin fins, is some what of a lost cause. 

It can feel a bit like yelling down an empty darkened tunnel about a subject others care little about.

I'm fine with that. 


But occasionally others pick up on my stoke and enthusiasm.

Blue magazine have just published an a twin fin issue with an interview and pics of my boards, featured the Electric vintage twin fin trip to WA with Craig and Ozzie and done a piece on the 'Communing with twin fins' Surf Swap event.








They titled the final section 'Enthusiasm'.
Well- thats nice o know that folks are listening.
