Tris singlefin

A tidy looking Tris swallowtail from the mid 70s, made at the factory at Mt Hawke near Porthtowan. This one's sent in by Henry and its probably shaped by Tris himself, sporting one of my favourite logos - I suppose the face is the sun but it always reminds me of the statue of liberty peering over the atlantic. This board's got its original ply fin and Cosmic leash.

Surf magazine, 2000

Henry has strong roots in WA and his boards reflect that - a good selection of Aussie spoons and singlefins.

Cordingleys - pintail and 5'5 early twin fin from 1970/1.

Jacko gun with a cool spray and Jacko spoon similar to Greenough's red velo. Thanks to Henry for sharing them.

  2. someone out there must have a Tris for Gavin - anyone ?
