1980s Wayne Rabbit Bartholomew twin fin
















Classic 80s 2 + 1/2 fin shaped by Martin Wright of St Agnes under license from Rabbit's legendary bugs WB label. Rabbit needs no introduction, one of the standout 70s and 80s surfers on the world tour.





Martin Wright was also a talented local surfer , a national junior champion who emigrated to Australia in the late 80s. The board's got some classic stickers from the era and check out the little stabiliser fin. Dimensions are 5'11 x 19 3/4 x 2 3/4 . Whether you like the spray job or not, thats what the 80s was all about !

  1. I remember that board being for sale on Gumtree in Australia. I called to try and buy it, but someone beat me to it...you've gotta be quick on those boards. I think it was selling for less than $100. What a score!
