surfboards Great Britain singlefin

Good looking double ender shaped by Tim Heyland for the short lived Great Britain label which ran alongside Tim's Tiki label. Shaped around '71 /'72 at the Braunton factory. Tim travelled alot back in the early days and picked up contacts and influences from the US and Hawaii which helped Tiki become a major brand. At this time his shop had the US distribution rights for Gordon and Smith, Bing and Weber. This board is from the Gul collection. A perfect logo for the British surfer.

Above and below, Tim on his travels late 60s/ early 70s.
