Isle of Wight 60s surfing on tv last night

60s Isle of Wight surfing on bbc 1 last night . Check out that home made wooden board - a good slop rider I think. When the film says in the 60s the only way to get a board was to make one yourself - but at the same time it shows a shot of guys running down to the water with Cornish and Devon boards. Alot of pioneering UK surfers would take a trip down to Newquay to get their boards and equipment , from as far away as the east coast, north Wales and Scotland.
