Hot Buttered by Ratso Buchanan

5'10 Hot Buttered from around 1980 with an eye wateringly bright spray - the 80s in all its glory , from the collection of Martin from Discoverysurf. Its shaped by top New Zealand surfer shaper Ian ratso Buchanan , possibly shaped in Cornwall at Ocean Magic. Ratso has been a guest shaper a few times in Cornwall over the years , and this board uses a burford blank, which Nigel imported into the UK. It has a twin fin + 1 set up, quite common in the transitional years from twins to thrusters, and is in great condition with no fading on those colours !
