1970s Hot Buttered surfboards twin fin by Terry Fitzgerald
















Classic late 70s twinnie by Australian legendry surfer / shaper Terry Fitzgerald. The board was made in Australia and made its way over to England in the mid 80s . It obviously hasn't been surfed much as its in great condition with nice rainbow fins and yellow tint.





Hot Buttered was a big brand in the 70s and 80s , sold over here by Ocean Magic in the 80s .The dimensions are 6'2 x 19 3/4 x 2 3/4, numbered 5568 . 70s hot buttered boards with srays by Martin Worthington fetch huge prices ; no spray on this one but its still a beaut. Another top surfer shaper for the brand was Derek Hynd , who has a personal decal on the deck by the leash plug.
