Tiki 8'6 singlefin

Here's another of Alex's boards, an 8'6 Tiki made in 1969 by Tim Heyland. In 1968 Tiki had moved to Barnstaple in Devon and during the winter of 68 - 69 Tim made over a hundred of these Australian inspired 8 footers which were taking over from longboards as the fashionable and radical board to surf. It still has the surf registration for 1971 and the classic TIKI splat logo.
