catching up after the easter holiday

I've been away in Portugal for two weeks - very crowded easter surf - so thanks for all the emails while I've been away with boards for sale, info on pigs and reports of the Surf museum opening - which was one thing I was sorry to miss. This above is a nice 7 ft mid 70s Freedom for sale in France; there was also a 70s Freedom for sale in Portugal.
Cool little 5'8 ft egg made by Bilbo, early 70s similar to what CJ was riding at the time. For sale through Gee in Newquay geepiper@yahoo.co.uk email for details.


Bronzed Aussies singlefin ( Cheyne Horan, PT and Ian Cairns) for sale in South Africa.
John Conway 70s 7'4 singlefin made in Newquay , with unusual fin and US foam.
