Vitamin Sea surfboards 1970s single fin
















Ad from Tube News dec 1981.





Nice early Vitamin Sea with a great logo by Kevin Russ featuring a tropical left hander; the board dates to the mid 70s. Vitamin Sea was started by Ted and Sue Ciastula in Newquay and was very successful during the late 70s and 80s with their Mark Richards and Cheyne Horan models and also Vit Sea's own twin fins and thrusters, many shaped by Chris Jones. I haven't seen a Vit Sea with this early logo before , check the leash fitting which loops through the board.
