  1. I've just started surfing over last year or two, yesterday went into a surf shop and they asked me my name 'Martin Wright' I replied! All the surfer dudes turned round and one said 'Any relation to THE Martin Wright' 'errrrr... no!' I hadnt realised there was a famous surfer of the same name!!!

  2. funny to see this - I did the deckle design for the MW board when I was a design student in Cornwall - this wad before the days of macs and was all hand drawn - a lot of effort.

  3. hi Charlotte, your design is saved for prosterity. Worth all the work
