Shaun's boards

These boards belong to Shaun, who owns the Trebarwith Strand surf shop in North Cornwall. Over the past few years he has amassed an impressive collection of British boards to hang in the rafters of the surf shop, and these are some of his favourites. Shaun's collecting started after finding an old board at the back of the shop which had been used as a sign. He has a special affinity with Clyde Beatty's Lightwave label after sharing a house with the Lightwave crew in the 80s. If you visit the shop you can see more of his collection.

Creamed Honeys by Kevin Cross , a Graham Nile and a very clean Bilbo.

Mint Freedom thruster by Bobby Male, Lightwave by Clyde Beatty and two late 70s Tris' probably by Hillsey. My friend used to own this Lightwave and I remember surfing it around Falmouth 10 + years ago !

Thanks to Shaun for the photos. A classic collection of boards.
