board for sale


 Rare Jacobs 6'6 singlefin with sidebites, shaped in August 1971 in California by an Australian travelling surfer, one Terry Fitzgerald ! Nice looking shape and fin set up ; the board is now in North Devon , offers to alexadahl@googlemail.com . As you can see it was signed again by Terry Fitz in 2007.
Here's some more history on it - The board was shaped on his way back from the hawaiian winter season of 70/71.He'd been staying with dick brewer in the spring on Kauai before stopping off in california on his way home. That season was when Alby falzon was filming the surfing of terry for morning of the earth. And if you look carefully at the hawaiian footage terry is holding a 2+1 in one of the shots. When you look at it in the flesh the board is incredibly advanced for 1971 and with 3 fins is still 10 years before simon anderson's thruster................
An important piece of surf history from the Morning of the Earth era, made by one of its stars .
