Tiki kneeboard and singlefin

Henry has sent pictures of two his Tikis with nice artwork. Above is an early 70s scooped deck kneeboard with parrot logo and acid wash with unusual flying birds on the underside. Henry says it would have originally had rope handles like Oz and US kneeboards of the time. Very psychadelic - it reminds me of Crystal voyager with Pink Floyd playing in the background !

Here's his really nice singlefin, probably mid to late 70s, made by Tiki with artwork signed by P & C Hewett. The Hewett brothers were talented artists who came over from Australia and worked at Tiki for a few years, working in the natural fantasy style as they called it, which got more angular as the 80s kicked in. Cheers Henry.
