1980s Hott twin fin/ tri fin by Chris Jones
















Staying with the Chris Jones theme, here's a board he shaped in the the early 80s for the short lived Hott surfboards label. It's got the classic features of its era, when needle or narrow noses were replacing the wide noses of the 70s, fins were changing from 2 to 2 1/2 to 3 and channels appeared, sometimes even at the nose and along the rails.





The dimensions are 5'10 x 20 1/2 x 2 1/2 and its numbered as Chris's 1008 th board. Many of the boards from this era are still not thought of as classics by their original owners and this one was heading for the landfill ;not any more !
