Karma early 80s quad

Sean sends us these shots of this rare beauty from his collection and says ' A Karma quad from 1983 with a pretty impressive spray job. The graphics were the work of Jed Stone, a name many will be familiar with and one who I line up against from time to time in 'Masters' events. This company started on the east coast ( Cromer, Norfolk ) via north Devon and eventually Newquay. Measures 6' x 21 x thick, board no. 56. Double hipped and swallow tailed. Dave Farrow was the man behind this company and Karma was 'merged' with Many Returns surfboards who trade at the same Newquay location to this day.'

Cheers Sean, its extra hot !
