Roger Cooper twin fin

Roger Cooper , 1984 - photo by Alex

One of our friends in France Pierre has found this classic Roger Cooper twin fin. Roger was a man of many labels, starting I think with Zippy Sticks in the early 70s. This twin fin is marking the transition from the wide nosed and 'tasteful ' sprays of the late 70s to this thinner nosed , early 80s day glo powered craft. The High Performance label is very 80s too, when words like turbo , jet and stuff like that started to get used in graphics to tell you just how fast your boards was ! This one's in great condition, thanks to Pierre for the photos.











1980








1969. Roger was Isle of Wight champion back in the late 60s.

  2. Ok I'll look out for those. Never seen any before. How many labels did Roger have ? Must be about a dozen !
