Tiki singlefin

Here's an interesting and quite gunny Tiki from the Gul collection, made around 1973 by John Hall, Tiki's Australian head shaper. It would have been made at Braunton, North Devon. Tiki was created by Tim Heyland in 1967 and it moved to Braunton in the late 60s, where they had the factory and a successful shop, and still do. John Hall worked with John Conway in 70-71, then had a long stint with Tiki surfboards before getting into windsurfing as the 80s hit. Thanks to Alex for the pics.
