Bilbo twin fin

Lovely twin fin from around 1980 when the Bilbo label was being resurrected. You don't see many of these 80s Bilbos though compared to other Newquay labels OM and Vit Sea. At 5'5 x 21 1/2 this one hovers between small fish and kneeboard, but with no scoop deck and plenty of volume fine to stand up surf if you're not a giant. This one is also outstanding condition wise and with beautiful fins, a little stunner. No shapers name but uses Clark foam. Cheers to Myles.
