Freedom surfboards vintage single fin







Bobby Male in a Freedom ad from 1981 , Tube News.



Old but proud Freedom singlefin from Toby's collection, shaped by the great Bobby Male in the mid 70s. Male was a British and European champion at the time ,surfing and shaping in Jersey. There will be more classic freedoms coming onto the site in the next few weeks. This board is 6'1 but may have been trimmed down, it was probably originally a swallow tail like most freedoms.
