late 80s Wavekraft thruster

Here's Jim's first board, a 1990 ish thruster shaped by Nigel Woodcock for his Newquay based label Wavekraft. Nigel grew up in East Anglia but relocated to Newquay and by the early 80s had joined the team at Ocean Magic under Nigel Semmens glassing and polishing. Nigel was also a strong contest surfer in the 80s, part of the charge of Newquay surfers on the competition scene, led by Nigel. He started Wavekraft in the mid/ late 80s.
