Vitamin Sea thruster

Here's an unashamedly late 80s rad board from Tad ( Ciastula). Its certainly eyecatching and although its not the most tasteful spray in the world I love it compared to most of the very plain thrusters of the 90s which lets face it don't have bags of character ( I may be eating my words in ten years time !). Vitamin Sea of Newquay was a big rival to Bilbo in the 70s and was commanding the Newquay market with Ocean Magic by the late 70s/ early 80s. Its nice to see a late 80s board in such good condition, most got trashed within a few years. This one's from the Gul collection.

  1. How much would one of these be worth? I have a similar one, in good condition.
