early 80s Tris twin fin

Here's a Tris 6'4 twin /tri fin from the early 80s. This used to be my board and then I sold it to Alex a year or so ago, before I started doing the blog and got to know him better . Its good to know the board's in good hands ! Its in prtty nice condition and I remember it was really light ; shaped by visiting surfer shaper Andrew Lenton who I think is from Australia and still surfs well today in veterans events. It comes from the time when Hillsey and Martin Wright were the main Tris shapers, using the new ts logo.
