Santa Cruz early 80s twin +1 fin

Now now what have we here then ? As its Christmas time I thought mabye something that contains the word santa. A board that would have been a rare import to the UK in 1984. Shaped by the legendary Joey Thomas who was king of the twin fins in California in the late 1970s. A ripper by all accounts as well. 6'2 x 20 x thick. Tri fin with removable /adjustable centre one. 80s spray ; slightly late for the era leash loop. Hipped. - Sean









Santa Cruz were best known for their skateboards, heres a couple of ads, above 1978, below early 80s.
