It was another successful surf meet at MOBS on the 25 september. Perfect weather and lots of people turned up with a stunning array of boards, and the museum was open to look round too. There was a film night the night before which went down very well, with Alex Williams narrating some recently unearthed 1970s surf films by Bez Newton !
Above are some early Cheyne Horan UK models from the early 80s, including no.4 in the middle and no.2 on the right , all shaped in Newquay by Chris Jones (for Vitamin Sea).
