Tiki stinger late 70s

Thanks to Henry for sending in photos of this rare Tiki foray into the stinger concept, and the only one I've seen by them. At the time it was made in the late 70s, stingers were very popular in the US and Hawaii, but there weren't that many made here. The design favoured more powerful waves than the beachbreak most UK surfers were riding at the time.
Henry's one looks in great condition, with original white tinted deck - which always helps hide the ageing. Its 7'1 x 20 x 2, and 14'' wide below the flyers which are 2 ft from the tail.



















From Atlantic Surfer 1978
