Ezy rider



A clip from Jimi Hendrix's 1972 film Rainbow Bridge, shot in Maui. Ezy rider must be one of the most apt surf sountracks of the 70s, and here's David Nuuhiwa ripping it up, doing 180s, switch stance ,tail first take offs, dropping in, cutting people up you name it he did it. Within a few months he would be riding twin keel fishes, and this style of board would be taken up by makers in the UK including Freedom, Tris, Creamed Honey and Wavecraft.
Those who have seen Rainbow bridge will probably remember a Mike Hynson singlefin being cut up for drugs smuggling. sacriledge...




The offending druggies
