1980s T&C surfboard by Neil Perrow

Unusual Town and Country with great artwork dating from about 1985. Its shaped by Neil Perrow who is now based in Perranporth , not sure where he was when he shaped it but I'd guess the board was made under European licence from T&C Hawaii.

I love the deck design , its original and under the glassing, a cross between graffitti and Jackson Pollock ! The deck also has a textured finish from the cloth, an alternative or an aid to wax ?The underside has a gloss finish and some nice neon 80s stickers. The dimensions are 5'11 x 19 1/3 x2 1/6.
